you know what you’re doing
happy monday gang! hope you had a killer weekend and are ready to take this new week by storm!
it’s been about a week straight of my domino rant and the only thing left to do is to tell conde nast how you feel. i’ve made calls, emailed, written snail mail, etc. here are some numbers and addresses you can use to bombard them too. but in the end, only we as a unit are going to make any difference.
all this about the mag and the soaring sales of issues on ebay
got me thinking about the value of magazines in general. i collect old home and beauty mags whenever i can just to see what’s changed and what’s stayed the same.
funny thing is, not too much has changed. unless of course you consider the styles, colors, and fabrics,
but then again, a house is a home because you made it yourself and you like what’s there. (if not, ditch it)! so whether we get domino back or not, (we will, be positive)! you already know what you like. and i’ve seen your homes, you have exquisite taste and you know what you’re doing. you know where to shop, how to revamp, and where to get a bargain.
i know personally i’ll be look ing at magazines in a different light now. where i used to tear them up and file the pics away, now i’ll keep more of them intact and use them gently as resources, something special that should be cared for, no less than a book. in our disposable society, this was a wake up call, at least for me, to treasure what’s current, not just the past, cause it’s just as fleeting.
yesterday at the miami beach flea market (above)
this morning in House Beautiful 1947
sorry for the terrible pics but a pretty closet is still as current today as it ever was
(she could be a domino cover)!
ok maybe not…
so in conclusion (this will be my last domino post), and not for nada, but i just got a call from conde nast and was given a couple executive emails there. PLEASE email them with the same passion you did on the web, telling them what you think the mag is worth and what you’re willing to pay for a subscription or the site entrance fee.
