Our new Winter 2014 issue of Antiques and Collectables for Pleasure & Profit will be on sale in newsagents across Australia from Monday June 16. (You can have it at least 10 days earlier by subscribing... but more about that later!).
We're celebrating the fact that we're once again publishing 4 magazines a year (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter) and the Winter 2014 magazine is packed to the staples with loads of great antiques and collectables features.
There are some great hints on how to hold a garage sale - and what NOT to do; there's an interview with Gale Collins, whose collection of lamps is one of the best in the country; and we take a tour of some of the potteries of Sydney and their stunning wares.
Plus we look at the history of the papier mache doll; gain an insight into beautiful guilloche enamel; learn about one of the world's richest collectors (he collected himself into insurmountable debt); and take a tour of the glorious Palace House of Beaulieu.
Then there's a feature on the wacky designs of Martin Bros ceramics, as well as a piece on Lea Stein Jewellery and another on two of the most talented women sculptors of the 19th century. And we look at some of the most unbelievable adverts from the 20th century (they'd never be allowed today!).
Plus there's even more... Including a 4 month calendar of antique fairs and events and 5 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 - firstname.lastname@example.org - and we'll tell you where you can buy it!
Or you could always join us as a subscriber and receive your magazine at least 10 days before it goes on sale in the newsagents. Lots of readers enjoy this 'early bird' advantage to buy items they see advertised in the magazine before they're sold to someone else. It's a competitive place, the collecting world!
An annual subscription is $39 and you can sign up by clicking here.
