The History of ericofon.com
The Rose Family
(I'm on the far left)
|I've been a phone collector
since 1990. Around 1995 I got my first Ericofon (a Red Telia). I started asking around to see how many colors
they were available in. It seemed none of the collectors I knew could tell me.
That's when I began my quest to get all the colors possible for the
Ericofon. After a decade of buying and displaying phones I was in need
of a challenge to reinvigorate my collecting interest. Little did I know
at the time I was taking a tiger by the tail. Not being one to give up,
I've now come to have, at this typing, 100+ original Ericofons in
I felt the information I was finding would be of interest to others, so I developed this
web site on my home computer. Before long I was getting inquiries as to whether I sold
Ericofons or not. I started looking around and coming up with phones.
I've refurbished 3000+ Ericofons since. I also expanded into other phones since it
was phones in general that I liked to work on.
The primary function of this web site is to educate
and I always enjoy getting e-mails from people telling me their story of how they had an
old Ericofon for years, and with the information on this site were able to get it up and
running by them self.
So now that you know this site is really a
"hobby run amuck" you're asking yourself "what does he do in real
life?". In real life, I'm a florist. I'm part of a family owned full service florist
and garden center. The name of the business is Rose Floral (with the last name of Rose,
what else could we call it?). So, besides answering your phone questions, you can also ask
me your lawn and garden questions too. But just remember, lawn and garden is very
regional. I live in a cold climate, don't ask me about landscaping with cactus.
