I just had to let it be known that Issue#3 of the delightful Quarterly PeppermintMag has arrived in our little store.
We are very thrilled to be new stockists of such an ethical & inspiring publication & we hope our lovely Customers appreciate it as much as we think they will.
This issue is overflowing with gorgeous pictures & articles about all kinds of crafty/creative folk.
It is almost overwhelming
- I cannot read it in one sitting -
it rattled me!
I think I have a crush on a magazine!!!
They describe themselves as "Australasia's first eco fashion mag"
It is printed in Australia using a waterless printing process on 100% recycled paper!
