Magazines stores/ big newsstands woldwide
I didn`t find any mention of that topic on tfs, but, i think, this is absolutely necessary theme for magazine collectors. I mean names and addresses of big stores/ bookstores/newsstands selling international magazines. I mean big ones with independent press such purple or self service.

For example, i am going to Berlin, but i don`t know any bit bookstore or special magazines store there. can someone help me with it? i need to buy self service there.

In Paris i know

WH Smith
Agora
Ofr
Colette

in Milan it is Mondadori

In USA it`s Barnes & Noble
America Apparel sometimes
Borders and newstands but it depends of the city. i can speak only for Los Angeles

In London it`s WHSmith
Magma

any other names & addresses?

Are you in Berlin for short or longer? Because if it is a short trip and you want to buy the currently available issue and on top of that travelling by plane, the easiest would be the airport.

I can guarantee you that there are more than enough stores or Kiosks in Berlin with Self Service. There's a cool one at the Alexanderplatz and I think I've also seen a book store in Berlin Mitte with older issues of mostly Purple, Self Servide and such. Not so much Vogue. Don't remember the name.
If not go search the stands and stores at the Bahnhof.


I would be curious to see where everyone is getting their magazines from. Pictures!

ETA: That's the one I've been to! It's full of art books and photographer books and judging by thee pictures also full of magazines. Maybe it's not the same since I don't remember Numéro issues there, but still:

Auguststraße 28, Berlin Mitte, not sure if they have Self Service but it might be a cool spot for you anyway.

You mean stores that sell current issues, not back issues?

In London the WH Smiths in Selfridges has a large selection of fashion magazines, especially foreign or harder to get ones.

In NY, it's not the biggest but my favourite is a newsagent by Abingdon Square because they have piles of fashion magazines (literally, piles) and if you ask for a magazine they don't have in stock they'll have it next time you go in!

Around The World in New York City is simply the best magazine store I've ever been to. It's filled to the brim with fashion magazines new issues as well as a plethora of back issues, and I'm pleased to find that they now have a webpage! The online shop is nothing compared to the store though. If you're looking for a good online shop, Magazine Cafe can't be beat.

Wow, nice thread.

If you go to Jakarta, the best bookstore here are Kinokuniya and Periplus. Although it's quite hard to find european and indie magazine here, because the stock will be very limited.

hi asf,

actually barnes and noble is ok for the rest of the country...but the best place to get the magazines in nyc is at a place called casa magazine. on 12th street and hudson.. all the agencies go there, they get many things first and the service is beyond outstanding. it's owned by 2 guys, named muhammed, the other one ali... so pretty easy to remember

also, universal news (as someone mentioned) is pretty good.. they are a big chain and there are a lot more of them, than barnes and nobles nowadays in new york. is pretty good as well.

*edited to add the name of casa.. because even though i've been going there for years, i actually forgot their name!

What about Chicago? anything close to the downtown area? Sadly they closed the Borders on N. Michigan and the only good book store I know of is the Barns&Noble on State St.

we can add Yvon Lambert bookshop - they stock a little amount of copies of Self Service, Purple, Encens and Magazine.
and Palais de Tokyo - they stock a lot of fashion magazines (from the Vogues to Encens) ...

thanks asf for doing this thread. I wanted to do a google map last summer. That would be nice, but I never really manage to handle that technology. I remember I posted about it in Search of magazines or something.

has anyone been to Powell's in Portland? they have a rep for the best selection of books but haven't heard about their magazine selection.

as far as Seattle goes the best places i've found for harder to find zines or international editions is the Uwajimaya & the B&N in University Village shopping center but even then they don't carry mags like RUSSH or gentlewoman magazine and the Pike Place newsstand but i don't get down there very often.

are there any great magazine sellers in Washington i'm missing out on? Tacoma /the south sound blows when it comes to magazine stands.
