I use the word stash very loosely here. Last Sunday I found this Festival of Britain Programme which I have wanted to see for a while. I swooped on it inelegantly and handed over £1. I was thrilled. If you like vintage adverts - enjoy - if not skip to the end of the post to see my other purchase!
Love seeing all these famous names...

Why does this little magazine make me feel good? I wasn't around in 1951. I think it's that life just was so much simpler then than now...(OMG - staring to sound like a grumpy old woman!)
The i picked up this delightfully kitsch tin - on the cusp of turning rusty but maybe I can stop it going further. I love it - it reminds me of the houses of friends whose families had budgies in the 60s and 70s. Price - £1 (I know, some wouldn't give it house room!)
Finally - and not pictured because it's disgusting - I bought a dressform. I've seen lots of these on blogs and love the variety of ways that people use to "dress" them. They all look like substantial pieces (and I know they are way out of my price range.
Mine is made of polystyrene and covered with a silky fabric. Another £1 changed hands. Surely I can cover this in some way to at least make it resemble the real thing? Any ideas? - and don't anyone suggest stamps!
