'Dullest' calendar - of telephone boxes of Wales - fails to sell
« on: November 20, 2013, 04:35:59 PM »
A "dull" calendar of red telephone boxes around Wales has struggled to sell a single copy.

The "Fast Disappearing Red Telephone Boxes of Wales 2014" has been branded "naff, nerdy and boring" by its publisher Kevin Beresford.

Mr Beresford, 61, was responsible for unlikely seasonal hit Roundabouts of Great Britain 2012 - and was hoping to repeat his success.

But it had failed to attract any buyers since going on sale in September.

So, time to make this man's day and start buying his calender methinks... :D

Yes,  the calendar seems a bit booring,  I understand why they did not sell.

Well, a little shift from the topic.   I would love the have an English red telephone box.  But here in the USA,  the rusted and paint chipped ones go for about $2000 USD.  Quite a high sum for an item that would need a lot of work to restore.  That is if one can get one in the same geographical region. I understand they weigh several hundred pounds and shipping would not be practical.  Here in California they are quite scarce.
