Thank you all for info I have googled Sherdley/Ravenhead and Chance but not come up with anything but I like the idea of adverts in old magazines Frank and can quite see what you mean by buying ordinary stock will give a little go down that route now.
As for kitsch I think I am in my second childhood as the things I like are mostly from my very youthful days. #Even furniture strikes me as from the 60's being very stylish everything is so square these days am looking out for a G Plan swivel chair with wings to go with my 50's bar in the conservatory. There are two down on e bay at the moment but too far away to collect.
Sorry I digress thanks again all
