I can truthfully say that I did not set out this morning to buy a telephone table. Yet, somehow:



Yeah. Sensible purchase decision for an unemployed person who's supposed to be moving house in two weeks.

But it was a tenner from the British Heart Foundation's furniture-and-electrical store, and it makes my telephone look great.

(Now you can all tell me about the one in your mum's garage you could have given me for free if you'd only known.)

Oh awesome telephone too.
Isn't it just? The former property of my grandma, it got its own post a few years ago when I had it converted to work on a modern line.
You want one of those spring-up address books to go with that and the phone.
OMG yes! *resists going straight on to eBay*
Can you get a spring-up phone to go with it, though?
My Nana had one of those. I recall my cousin nearly putting his eye out with it once!
It's amazing how they always seem to find their way into a shopping bag, without us noticing.
Big shopping bag...
Nope — no telephone table in my mother's garage. Indeed, my mother doesn't have a garage. Which is why the rocking chair in which she was nursed as a baby seventy-six years ago is currently sitting in my garage…

You wouldn't be safe let loose in the Salvation Army shop in Cambridge, you know?

Also, have you ever considered getting a Bluetooth handset for your mobile? :-p
I actually have a handset like that, but it has yet to fit any of my phones.

That's a justification that not even The Inquisitor could deny you!

Excellent telephone table.
that's utterly splendid, and a tenner well spent.
Me and J LOVE the local BHF. We got his ottoman for his bedroom from there, it's gorgeous. Not very old, but very pretty. I keep looking at the awesome beds and 20s art deco furniture (let him more rooms let him move rooms first *le sigh*)!

Oh, so much stuff, so little space!
