Vintage Style Magazine

Have you seen the new special issue of Country Almanac?  It is Vintage Style, A Makeover Issue published by Harris Publications. I am confused because Country Almanac ceased publication in 2006, at least as far as I know.  However, this magazine is available for $9.95 before discounts.  You can find it online as well.

I found it at Sam’s Club.  I am halfway through, and although I was excited to see another special issue having to do with vintage items or decor, I am not that excited about this one.  I am trying to figure out why?  It just doesn’t have enough use of vintage items.  Most of the articles show homes that use vintage items in their decor.  All of them seem to be overly crowded or too dark. I didn’t see many new ways of using vintage items.

So have you seen the magazine?  What do you think?  I really would love to know if you like it or not.  I want to encourage companies to keep putting out these special issues, but this one just isn’t doing it for me, but I am sure others will like it.

  1. I too have this magazine and was looking forward to the next issue which was due out Oct. 15, 2012. However, all they did was reissue it with a Display until Jan. 13, 2013. Talk about a rip-off. I won’t buy another one because of that plus what you mentioned above. Too bad they couldn’t have done a better job at what could have been a great publication.

    • Thanks, Pam. I didn’t know they reiussed with another cover. I think some of the special issue magazines do that. Don’t like it at all when that happens. I have purchased more than one thinking it was new, but only the cover was. Sorry that happened to you.

I love hearing your thoughts, please leave a comment.
