A turnupstuffer? What’s that?

“The whole world is filled with things that are just waiting for someone to come along and find them, and that’s just what a turnupstuffer does.”

So says Pippi Longstocking, in the 1954 translation of Astrid Lindgrin’s classic book of the same name. In later editions, it would be translated as ‘thing-finder’, but ever since I was a child I was fascinated with the idea of being a turnupstuffer.

This is a log of the things I have turned up.
