About Telephone Purses
Dial up your style with a telephone purse. A vintage telephone purse, indeed a purse ahead of its time, often features unique exterior details such as embellishments, embossed leather, and a touch or rotary number dial. Some of these vintage bags can double as operational phones, but do require a connection to a phone jack or landline in order to work. However, the modern versions replicate this unique accessory with the added feature of connecting with your cell phone. Just plug your cell phone into the rotary phone's handset, put it in the purse and start taking calls, compliments, and questions from friends or curious onlookers. Perfect when you get a call and do not want to open your purse to search for your cell phone; the handset is conveniently attached to the top of the purse for easy access. Corded telephone purses feature the dial numbers, handset, detachable shoulder straps, and those curly telephone cords you miss having with cordless cell phones. There is a large variety of telephone purses available on eBay from top designers such as Betsey Johnson and Lady Gaga.
