    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

    some mainstream as international Vogue, interview, and some indie (self service, richardson magazine) and also maybe fresh fashion photo-books (by Rizolli, i need dior haute couture by demarchelier etc)

    Any help would be appreciated.

    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?

    Outside Hotel Alvear, there´s a newsstand that carries lots of international mags. Also the newsstand by La Viela in Recoleta.

    The newsstand in Cabildo and Juramento in Belgrano (the one in front of the cafe) has a few months old US and Italia Vogues at around 40 pesos.

    Some newsstands in Av Libertador near Salguero have Vogue Paris, at around 100 pesos :doh:

    If you can, I´d recommend subscribing. I´m thinking of getting a subscription to US Vogue in which case each mag will cost me 25 pesos instead of 80.
    I´m currently subscribed to Allure, each mag costs me 13 pesos instead of 80 :D
    You can also check mercadolibre.com.ar they sell subscriptions to Vogue Italia for 400 pesos for 12 issues. Though you´ll have to check if they´re reliable...

    I bought a Vogue Italia from july i think a few months ago in Scalabrini Ortiz and Santa Fe for 50 pesos. They had a nice collection of vogues
    There is another newstand "sobre santa fe" (sorry, I don't know how to say this in english) where I saw a V magazine ages ago, it was the age issue from last year, don't know about the price

    If you live in Argentina and you´re interested in old mags, you should check mercadolibre.com.ar. I recently bought 80 mags for 100 pesos! the lot had Vogue US from mid to late 90s, Allure mid 90s, Elle & Harper´s Bazaar US from early 00s among others :smile:

    ^ yes, milan's mondadori is probably the best spot in the city. they have virtually everything and whenever i go and there's a mag with various covers out, they always have all of them (see the dazed & confused 20th anniversary issue w/20 covers).
    I also have to add that do you read me in berlin has a back-issues selections too and i've been lucky to find many rare mags there. they also sell online if you mail them and they're very collaborative.

    My friend & I JUST left the store on W37 & 7th ave and it was AMAZING:buzz:. It was dizzying how much magazines there were:shock:. Even though I didn't find the mag I was looking for, there was back issues from the 90s. My friend left with a BUNCH to add to his collection so he wants to thank you too:flower:

    This thread is great!!!! Loooove to know if there are more newsstands around NY but if possible, next time could addresses be included:lol:

    does anyone know any good newsstands in the LA/ Orange County area? Barnes & Nobles isn't quite cut it anymore for me. It would help very much!

    Two more to add to London;

    The post office just of oxford st. Its off the beaten track a bit and you'd never know it was there unless someone told you--but it has a massive selection of magazines, oddly enough;

    Post Office Ltd
    The Plaza, Oxford Street, London W1D 1LT 0845 722 3344 ‎ postoffice.co.uk

    Also the newstand at the end of Tottenham court road is really cool. Its not massive but they guy always has cool music playing really loud and little flashing lights and disco balls. It makes the mags look really inviting. Whenever I walk past I dont want to step out of the little cloud of feel good vibes it creates...:lol:
