I've never really roamed around Boston looking for a good newsstand, but my go to place for the newest issues is the Barnes & Noble @ the Prudential Shopping Center... though lately, they've been lagging behind in updating their inventory. Another place I always stop by is the big newsstand right outside of the T (subway) stop at Harvard Square. One thing I hate about this place is that they charge you more than the listed cover price... usually places around here do not do that... :/

I'd recommend that too, I walked past a Polish store, to be drawn to Anja and husband Sasha's Viva cover.

My mom went to Fog City News when she was in SF a month ago. She said it was quite lovely and had a good selection of magazines (especially fashion/culture mags). It's where she got the newest issue of Lula for me.

If you're in Chicago and want some good international magazines, you should go to the shop at the Museum of Contemporary Art. They have Love, Purple, Acne, Wallpaper*, and other good foreign magazines. But the magazines they sell there are magazines that are only published in English so don't expect to see Numero or Vogue Italia. They also sell fashion and photography books. Just yesterday I bought this David Armstrong book, so theres a lot of good things to buy there.

I'm still wondering if there are any other good places to buy foreign magazines in Chicago, especially asian magazines, anyone know?

Sherwood Magazines [745 La Cienega Boulevard] in West Hollywood is the best!

Juicy News in San Francisco:

Carries the following editions of Vogue: US, UK, Russia, Nippon, Paris, Australia and Italia.

They also carry Arena Homme+, Numéro Homme and Numéro, 10 Magazine (both editions), Acne Paper, Oyster, Russh, Lula, AnOther, UK GQ Style, Bon, i-D, Citizen K, Wonderland, Dansk, W, Interview, V and V Man, Love, POP, Muse, Tank, Under the Influence and a few others.

It's a tiny store so they don't have the most shelf space, they had run out of copies of Bon and i-D by the time I had got there. They did have back issues of Arena Homme+ and Vogue Italia from the past few months. And you can request for the staff to call you when the latest issue of a certain magazine has come in.

are there any great magazine sellers in Washington i'm missing out on? Tacoma /the south sound blows when it comes to magazine stands.
Seattle actually has a really good newsstand at the Pikes Market near all of the fish...

^Read All About It at Pike Place

Bulldog News in the U. District is also good.

B&N in downtown Seattle is better than the U. District. I've found Gentlewoman, Russh, etc. there.
They have a large selection of mags. And the Kinokuniya Bookstore in Uwajimaya is absolutely the best for all Japanese mags. They have some Korean & Chinese mags also.

Anyone know of any good fashion mag stores in Toronto?

Chapters/Indigo occasionally carries Vogue UK, but I would love a reliable source for some international Vogues

I haven't been there yet but I'll be sure to visit it the next time I'm in the city! Do they markup their prices significantly? When I visited Juicy News, that was the biggest turn-off to shopping there again. Also, have you been to Fog City News?
