Hey everyone,

I just got home to find my mum had bought me a second hand guitar case from a friend. I checked the little string compartment bit and found a few notes. I couldn't believe it when I found a weekend busker's license for Church Street Marketplace for a Kate Tunstall dated 07.01.95 to 07.04.95 I thought surely not so I did a little digging. As you probably all now this is where she busked in her early 20's but I still thought surely not. The next thing I found was a BT letter addressed to St Andrews, Fife KT Tunstall's birthplace. This is getting good :smt002 on the front and rear are some phone numbers and a London address somewhere in Balham wherever that is. There is also a song list included a few thank you notes and a $2 bill. I'm pretty sure that this stuff all belonged to KT from her busking days. So I was wondering if the case was hers as well or not. Last but not least there are a few stickers for access all areas to Underworld on the back of the case. One is Ocacia and Mary Lou Lord or whom I'm not sure who these are but there are 2 for a band called Elia Drew a band in which KT played in her early 20's. These stickers are dated 1996. I honestly believe that this is the guitar case that she busked and gigged with during her early days. I can't believe how lucky I am and definitely a unsuspected and pleasant christmas present. Would like to hear what you all think about this and I'm sorry if i've annoyed anyone by being a lucky little bugger haha
