    Anyone have experience with the Crosley phones? I bought one of the Pottery Barn ones years ago and returned it becuz it felt really light and cheap. I’d love to find something more substantial – like the home phones we had in the 70s (and some of us, into the 80s).

    I own a Crosley and a Pottery Barn phone! I like the Crosley more, but my PB phone feels heavy and sturdy. Perhaps they’ve changed over the years?
