I was trawling through the internet last night, when I happened upon a blog called Rare Vintage and I have to say, it’s fabulous!!!
Not just because of all of the stunning, vintage clothing and associated stories, (I will be back to read more about those) but I believe I have stumbled across someone who loves magazine as much as I do. (And trust me, I would not joke about something like this!)
Peppered throughout the blog are references back to old books and magazines and then, I came across this photo and my heart skipped a beat, literally!
Look at all of those vintage magazines!! It would appear that ‘Miss Rare Vintage’ came across these while shopping with her husband.
The quality of the magazines is amazing!! You can pick out the famous Jean Shrimpton Harper’s Bazaar cover shot by Richard Avedon and another Harper’s Bazaar with Faye Dunnaway and Warren Beatty on the cover, sitting nonchalantly in stacks, just waiting to be taken home by someone who will appreciate them.
I can’t imagine who could bear to part with such treasures and I am sad (exceptionally so!) that I wasn’t there to scoop them up myself ……. However, I do believe that they have found a good home.
