An Entrepreneur Builds a Business Selling Old Phones

Eager collectors and big buyers like Hollywood keep Oldphoneworks.com ringing
up sales

By Bonnie Miller Rubin

When Don Woodbury opened a cellphone store in 2001, he included a few
old phones as part of the décor, reflecting the historic district
where the business was located.

Soon customers were asking to purchase the vintage models. "They'd
just come up to me and say, 'I want one of those.' It didn't take me
long to realize that there was a good internet market for this stuff,"
Mr. Woodbury says.
