Love for vintage and retro continues...

Images from amazon.co.uk and H is for home

There is nothng quite like the feel of a bakelite phone handle in your hands, and that sound you get from dialing each individual number in the dial, of course numbers use to be some what shorter back then, but we are still loving these vintage phones, and more recently phones from the 50s 60s and 70s are seeing a raise in interest. If retro is your thing then how about something like the lovely turquoise one above, really adding a pop of colour to your work desk, or what about the bulls eye phone top centre, are we going to see a return of the mods? remember them?
For places to buy check out H is for Home or amazon for retro or vintage phones, or check out the second hand/charity shops where you may be able to get the origianls.
