If there’s one thing we like more than spending a Saturday browsing and buying some of the world’s best independent magazines, it’s spending a Saturday browsing and buying some of the world’s best independent magazines in the name of charity.
So with that in mind, we’ll likely be spending the bulk of this coming Saturday – 1 December 2018 – hunched over tables in east London’s trendy Ace Hotel, where Stack Magazines is hosting a half-price sale to raise some pre-Christmas cash for Crisis, the national charity for homeless people.
After this month’s Stack Awards – where New York-based broadsheet Good Trouble picked up the uber-coveted Magazine of the Year prize – the curator of all things print has found itself with a surplus of the sort of publications that likely make perfect gifts for anyone in your life who can talk for hours on end about specific spreads in early-90s issues of The Face .
Steve Watson, Stack’s director, says “We’ll have hundreds of brilliant magazines for you to take home with you, so come along from 12pm to join the crowds of people browsing and buying, and do your bit for charity while digging out those rare and unusual print bargains.”
