Vintage Magazines: Love em or Leave em?

Vintage Magazines: Love em or Leave em?

Magazines - they are easily our number one storage problem - we love them so much that it is hard to let them go. For instance we have EVERY issue of Domino, which we were kind of beating ourselves up for hanging on to, until the fateful day...

...when we heard that they were folding - and then we were thrilled to have the complete run. We don't have any magazines older than the past few years but after seing this post on Design Mom, we really wish we did. She recently got an old copy of Seventeen (pictured here) which she and her family are enjoying. We absolutely remember this issue (probably spent waaaay too many hours poring over it, dreaming of cute shoes) and as much as we'd love to see it again, we can't imagine having hung onto a magazine for all those years - too many closet cleanouts and moves!

Have you held onto any vintage magazines? Home design or otherwise? Full collections or just a single special issue here and there?
