The one-time popstrel Toyah Willcox, or Mrs Fripp as we like to think of her, owns a house which is used to store her ever-growing archive of memorabilia.

It has now come to light that Dobson, the twentieth century’s greatest out of print pamphleteer, also had a building other than his residence – possibly a barn, or a chalet – but we have no idea what he kept in there. Furs? Frippabilia? It’th a mythtery, sure enough.
I shall do some research.
