(West Midlands, UK)
I found a lot of small brown envelopes that had been thrown in a skip (large trash container) around five years ago, and it took me almost 3 hours to salvage the envelopes I could. I had an idea of what they were, as they all had names of different countries written on them, and the others I've come across by browsing in charity / nicknack shops. The most I've had to pay was about twenty pounds, and that was for a tub full. Most I know about, but a few that do not show up on the internet sites I've looked on. I'm sure in time I'll find the info I'm looking for. In the meantime, I will carry on enjoying looking at them all from time to time :)
