There's so much going on at the moment we don't know where to start! The Spring 2014 issue of Antiques and Collectables for Pleasure & Profit is one of the best magazines we've ever produced. We've started up a weekly email newsletter that's free for everyone, so join up if you're not already on our list… and we've got some fantastic dollar-saving book and magazine packages specially for our readers!
So let's start with the Spring magazine. The cover feature is all about collecting toy boats, and we had some great fun shooting the images for it! There's also a gorgeous feature on Nubian bronze figures, we take a look at collecting thimbles and there's a story on the history of Limoges.
We take a tour of Mulberry Hill, introduce you to the potters of the John Campbell Pottery, reveal a French treasure and suggest that the credit card itself might even be collectable.
Then there's a new section called What's Hot and What's Not, plus information on apothecary bottles, collecting movie daybills and the story behind the paper knife. We take an antique buying tour of Shanghai and author Mark Hill provides lots of tips on buying from his new book, The Canny Collector.
Plus there's even more... Including a 4 month calendar of antique fairs and events, Bargain Hunter, book reviews and 4 pages of readers' letters in What's it Worth. It's a great magazine and it's packed with literally hundreds and hundreds of items to buy!
If you can't find a copy at your local outlet, email us - email@example.com - and we'll tell you where you can buy it!
Next we'd like to tell you about our weekly CollectorChat email newsletter (well, we send it out most weeks!). If it's interesting, astounding, fun, important, eccentric, relevant, record-breaking or quirky, we'll report on it! If you'd like to be added to the newsletter email list, email us - firstname.lastname@example.org - and we'll include you. You can unsubscribe at any time if you get fed up with it.
Last but not least - we've been beavering away behind the scenes to organise some fantastic dollar-saving packages for you, our readers. Just click on the promo below and it will send you to the Subscriptions page, where you can read all about the packages and see how you can save quite a lot of money and get lots of interesting info at the same time!
