Pretty Nostalgic is one of the most beautiful magazines I have ever bought. And no, I am not being paid to say that. I just adore it.

Back in 2012 we started stocking this handsome independent vintage lifestyle magazine. Founded in South Wales by vintage dealer Nicole Burnett this square perfect bound patterned magazine set out to celebrate, inform and inspire on the subject of vintage lifestyle and all things British. In each issue the tactile matt pages are laden with beautiful images of things handmade and from bygone eras and tips for homemaking, thrifting, reusing, upcycling and buying British.

Unfortunately at present we don’t stock the current issue (maybe that will change in the future), however we still love the magazine and continue to sell back-issues (they’re not currently live on the site, get in touch if you’d like one).

I don’t know about you but I’d rather read this than some shiny, stapled rush-to-get-it-out rag full of ‘this celeb is fat, that celeb cheated on her fella’  tripe any day.

With their latest issue (12) Pretty Nostalgic celebrate their second birthday, hurrah! But life isn’t as peachy as could be and sadly the future of the magazine lies in your hands.

How can you help? Simply subscribe to the magazine and tell your friends. Just 150 more subscribers per issue would save the magazine so they could go on to support and celebrate independent vintage businesses like Rag and Magpie.

I have often fantasized what my life would have been like if I were born at the [read full post]
