Like many others in Blogland I have to admit to being a bit of a magazine addict. I currently subscribe to four magazine - Homes & Antiques, Country Living, Horse, and Elle Decoration. I don't feel too guilty as I buy them with Tesco reward vouchers which means that they average £10 or £11 worth of vouchers - a bargain as far as I'm concerned! I do of course buy other magazines off the shelf if that month's issue appeals to me.
Over the years I have subscribed to other publications but have stopped buying them for one reason or another. One of these is "Collect It" which I used to buy some years ago but gave up on it as I felt it's main focus was on modern "made to measure" collectables & not the vintage items I love so well.
Anyhow, after having some recent contact with the editor of the magazine I thought I should have another look as it seemed that their interest in vintage was once more on the up.
On Saturday I picked up a copy in WH Smith's & was pleasantly surprised.
This month's issue focuses on tea & cakes so is full of articles & photos of vintage china, Cornishware, Emma Bridgewater, teapots & more. I am pleased that it seems to be including a lot more vintage collectables in it's pages & will be looking out for it again.
