Ah, the price of magazines, I could have talked all day about this, back when I actually still bought them. Because the one thing worse than overpriced magazines is when you don't even get the chance to consider buying them any more, because the stores have closed.

As time as gone on, Belfast has become more multicultural and prosperous, yet the availability of foreign reading matter has diminished in inverse proportion, to the extent that there's really only one store in the city centre - Easons - that carries any decent array of import magazines (the WH Smith tends to stock only US magazines, costing around £3.50-£4.80). The prices are reasonable, but the range is heart-breakingly limited. Gone are the days when you could get German Elle (£4.25) and Spanish Vogue (£4.50).

There are, dotted around the city, Polish food shops that will have a shelf carrying Russian Glamour and Lithuanian Cosmo for around £3, but it's a happy accident to find them, and they're generally on streets where you'd rather not carry money.

On the other hand, if you go to Ireland, and go to Easons in Galway or Dublin, there's a decent range of import mags - but the problem then is the price, because there's added tax to magazines in Ireland. So a Japanese Vogue that would cost you £10 in the UK suddenly leaps to costing around £15.

You're perfect, yes, it's true. But without me, you're only you.

Oh my Lord! I feel lucky now! MOST (not all some are more) usually about $5-$16

And Oddly it much cheaper to buy all my international magazines rather then subscribe....

I'm new here and would just like to say hi! I am honored to be here with you all and hope to be for a long time.

I think self service is the most expensive one, it costs 26 euros and Purple fashion is 18 euros. Japanese vogue is very expensive too, something like 14 euros, but I'm not sure since I don't buy it.
The rest have a reasonable price vogue Paris 6 euros, 7.60 vogue Italia, flair is 5.50, numéro 7.70 and i-D is 9.25.
There are no expensive spanish fashion magazines... not as the architecture or design ones. Metal is 4.5 euros, I think vogue españa is around that price as well. And telva is even cheaper.

In Brazil, magazines are sooo expensive, including nacional ones. Vogue Brazil costs 14,90 reais - that's about 10 dollars. Vogue US costs 22,95 reais, that's about 15 dollars; Vogue Paris costs 59,90 reais, about 20 dollars. It's an absurd, because Vogue US is $3,99 and Vogue Paris is 4,75 (?) euros. I'm happy that fashion spot exists - but it's not the same thing to buy a magazine, because I can't read the articles and so.

Vogue Italia is between 3-6 months old when we get it here in New Zealand yet they still want between $50-60 for it. It's ridiculously overpriced, so I can't afford it unfortunately.

I was a magazine store the other day and I noticed that they wanted $140 for some French fashion magazine that was 6 months old. Numero and Vogue Paris costs about $40.

I also have to pay $25 a month each for airfreighted Vogue UK, Elle UK, Dazed & Confused and i-D, $20 for Vogue US and $15 for NYLON.

And $50 each for Another Magazine and Lula, but luckily they don't come out too often or I couldn't afford them.

Magazines in New Zealand are SO expensive and very overpriced!!!

(We don't get Self Service here, but I don't even want to think how much that would cost if we did)!

I paid $35 for the July Issue of Vogue Italia.
I live in the middle of nowhere so I don't get a lot of international magazines.

I feel like the most I've ever paid for a magazine is ~$14 for Lula. Then like $9 for Dazed & Confused. And I guess Pop was pretty pricey, too. But these were all imported. For U.S. magazines, I think paying anything over $4.99 is an abomination...

*gasp* Well it was THE hot issue.

Hmmm...well the most Ive paid is 17$ for Vogue Italia. But hearing about how some people pay 23 for V is insane because here its only 6$

oh that's fun someone revived this thread as i wanted to open such a thing.

guys, the prices are going insane ... i guess you all think i am lucky because in france vogue paris and jalouse aren't expensive ... and purple fashion and self service their "normal" price (15€ and 20€ ....) but OMFG when you wanna buy something else ...

first i noticed ArenaHomme+ price has grown up .... from 9.9€ to 12.3€ .... maybe i'm mistaken. but i do think i'm right.
and i always wonder why Vog.Italia always goes from 6 to 7.5€ and then back to 6€ ....
this current issue is 7.5€ .... damn it. i had not enough cash on me ....

anyway. today i was at my local magazines dealers. and wanted to get my dose of magazines. but here is what i realized when i had them all in my hands ....
i would spend ........ about 90€ ..... it's INSANE !!! it's TOTALLY INSANE !!! I used to do that in my teen past. but i've grown up ....... and now have differents other things to buy and spend my money on .... or just have less money ....

so i just bought Interview ....
