Meet our Favorite Magazine "Pretty Nostalgic"

Song: ' a foggy day' by Louis Armstrong
Tea: Darville of Windsor Earl Grey. (best tea brand we have found so far)

Hi Tea Fans,

I thought i would let everyone know about a special magazine that we just adore at Tea Vintage.
"PRETTY NOSTALGIC' You can now get the monthly magazine in WH Smiths now which is great.

We met the ladies behind this magazine last september at the Epsom Racecourse Festival of Vintage.
We were hosting our Tea Vintage Travelling Tea room and were on out last legs that day with an unexpected 3,000 people attending the event and we were 3 team members short due to illness! still as they say keep calm and carry on. Thats just what we did and the lovely ladies from Pretty Nostalgic were hosting their stall next to us and saw we were covered in queues of people 40 deep!

In pure kindness and being such thoughful ladies, they offered to help and took turns to clear tables and wash up.

for 5 hours!!!!!!!!

Once the last cup of tea was drunk and the last cake was eaten, we sank into a chair for our first cuppa of the day and couldnt thank the ladies enough. we then chatted and heard all about this brilliant magazine.

It really is the first proper vintage devoted magazine out there. The style of the magazine and the content really oozes old style perfectly.  The paper its printed on feels like reading an old novel and look of the magazine looks almost textured on every page. It even smells like a library!
There are lots of articles about crafts, upcycling, food, gardening, events, ... the list goes on.
You can really tell the work that goes into this magazine has come from a group of people that dearly love all things old, the art of making the most of what you already have and appreciating the real things in life.

Keep it up guys!

So to all people out there that are fed up of these magazine that showcase a pretty vintage front cover and then fills the pages with soulless adverts (we know the ones!)
enjoy a breath of fresh air and pick up a copy of "Pretty Nostalgic" or even better subscribe to a years membership.

a perfick read with a good cuppa

Until next time

Everything stops for tea

  1. Every year I visit Beaulieu Autojumble to buy and sell rusty old stuff, but this year I was transported back to innocent times with an edwardian pace of life by drinking tea from a china cup in the delightful company of Marie and Emily. I emerged from their tented tea emporium refreshed and rejuvenated and dreaming of dimples and polkadots and lace tablecloths.
