CSC shop of the week - The Red Telephone Box

While I am on the subject of telephones, the ultimate in retro chic must be the iconic British red telephone box.

While you rarely see them in public nowadays, the old boxes are being snapped up by interior designers and creative individuals as quirky additions to homes and gardens.

You can pick up professionally restored and fully operational boxes for around £1,000 online, as well as unrestored ones for a few hundred pounds cheaper - a great DIY project if there ever was one.

Imagination is the only limit to their uses if you have the space - with some owners converting their boxes into tiny bars, mini-greenhouses and even shower cubicles. Quite the talking point, I think you'll agree.

The Red Telephone Box stock a range of telephone boxes in various states of restoration.
