I always get asked how do I take care of my vintage magazines. I have magazines that range from the 1930's to the present. I even have all of my teen magazines from the 1980's. Sadly, a lot of magazines are no longer being published. Because many of these magazines are rare and very old, we should try and take care of them. I feel like vintage magazines are pieces of history and they should be preserved as best as possible.

So how can you take care of your vintage magazines? Here are some tips that helped me:

  • Keep them in an organized manner. I tend to stack each of mine right side up then right side down until I have all of them stacked. 
  • Store them in a cool, dry area. A good place would be your basement or a closet.
  • If they are not on a shelf, store them in a plastic bin. A cardboard box would be easily penetrable to insects and dampness.
  • Place them in clear plastic dust jackets. 

If you are looking for some good vintage magazines these are my recommendations; Good Housekeeping. Life, Teen, Seventeen, Women’s Day, and Photoplay. And if you are looking for places where you can buy some vintage magazines other than Etsy and Ebay, check out Wolfgang's and Joe's Paper Shack.
