Land of Lost Content

National Museum of British Popular Culture Shropshire

Stella & husband Dave opened their first Museum under the name Rejectamenta on July 21st. 1991 in a redundant twelfth century C of E church in East Wittering, West Sussex.Four years later they moved their growing collection to a near-by tourist attraction at Earnley Gardens where they had more room. Rejectamenta was housed there until the end of November 2002.
Stella originally from Birmingham, and Dave from Cheltenham had always
dreamt of  returning to the West Midlands and again running their own
show. When they discovered the Old Market Hall in Craven Arms for sale they moved heaven and earth and several hundreds of thousands of items –
Their Masterpiece was nearing completion.Rejectamenta had gained an army of  fans during Its eleven years on the south coast, many of whom have visited ‘Land of Lost Content’ which opened on April 18th. 2003. Lots of new recruits have swelled that army since.

Stella and Wayne first met in 1991
shortly after she and Dave opened
their first museum Rejectamenta in
a redundant church in West  Sussex
not far from where Wayne and his
family lived. Wayne and Stella
could often be seen vying with each
other at local car-boot sales.
