While other girls subscribed to Seventeen (a magazine I was forbidden from reading, thank God!), I subscribed to Victoria. I loved getting a magazine a month and looked forward to receiving them. I kept every issue. In the meantime, my mother found more issues in garage sales and library sales and passed them all onto me.
When I got married, the Victoria magazines came with me, along with my undying subscription. Then, one day, I got that sad notice in the mail. Victoria magazine was no longer going to be published. My substitute was Cottage Living (of which I have every issue). Unfortunately, that magazine is no longer published and I've substituted with Cottages and Bungalows. In the meantime, I was sent an announcement that Victoria magazine was going to be republished! I subscribed right away!
I love receiving Victoria in the mail. When I can, I add to my collection with back issues I or my mother find. I recently ordered both 1990 and 1991 - 24 magazines!
I do have some extra issues, though. My mother found these and I am selling them for her. The price of $2.50 each includes shipping. International shipping (Alaska and Hawaii) is extra.
