As you know, I have recently moved home. I am still moving the last few bits and pieces. Many of you also know I have a rather large magazine collection. I have moved somewhere in the region of 40 large Ikea blue bags full so far and am not quite finished (see next post). One advantage of moving is that it gives you an opportunity to sort, assess and jettison (if necessary). As I struggle to fit everything into my small house, I realised that it is time to part with some of my possessions. First up, some magazines. Yes, I could just chuck them in the recycling bin, but before I do, I thought I would give someone the opportunity to take them off my hands. This batch includes 29 US version House Beautiful magazines from the 1990's. They are mostly complete, but the odd issue may be missing the odd page. This is a little gem of an interiors magazine. Each one is very thin, but packed with information and inspiration. You never know what you will get in each issue, such is the variety of themes and styles. I flicked through them recently to be reminded of why I kept them in the first place: they are full of interior (and garden) ideas and would be a great source of creativity. Whilst the ads may look a bit dated, the features themselves are timeless (aside from any prices I hasten to add). So if you are an interior decorator or decorative painter or just a lover of magazines and would like these issues to add to your library, please let me know. You can have them free, but pay for the postage. And here lies the catch. They weigh 10kg. Local people can collect from Stocksfield Hall, but I have had an initial look at postage prices and within the UK they would cost 18.80 GBP to send, within Europe around 44.00 GBP (maybe less depending on your country), to the US and Canada, around 84.00 GBP. I can do better if I send them surface and the cost will be about 74.00 GBP. This may put you off and I do understand, but the offer is there if anyone wants to take me up on it. Please contact me if you would like them. When they have gone I will amend this post.
