We interrupt this blog to tell you the sad story of huddled masses of magazines, yearning to be free…
Once upon a time, there was a girl who thought it would be really fun to offer crafty magazines for sale on her website. And it was. For the first few years.
The thing about magazines is, they keep on coming. Monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, annually – whatever the time period, they just. keep. coming.
I’ve emailed many of my suppliers and told them to start sending me fewer copies of each issue. I’ve made the decision to quit re-ordering back issues of certain titles. I’ve re-arranged the shelves several times over. But still…
There are magazines put away nicely where they belong, of course, but then there are also magazines on the floor in front of the shelves, magazines in boxes next to the shelves, magazines in boxes on the basement steps, even magazines in boxes on the family room floor, for crying out loud!
I’ve discounted almost every issue of every magazine waaaay down. In many cases, I’m offering them for less than I paid. See how desperate I am? Please. Buy some. Make space on my shelves. You’ll have my undying gratitude (and some cool reading material to boot!). A pile of crafty mags would be the perfect thing to have on the towel next to you at the beach, don’t you think?
And now back to our regularly-scheduled bloggy goodness.
