Gimme Five! Magazine files

selection of magazine files

We’re finally getting around to sorting out our home office. Boxes have been unpacked, bits of shop stock assigned to the correct storage area… and the printer has actually been moved off the floor and placed on a desk after 8 years!

We accumulate TONS of paperwork annually which we need to keep for at least 5 years for tax purposes. Recently, it’s been stored in random sweet and biscuit tins but it don’t look great. Utilitarian, yet beautiful, magazine files would look so much better! Each would be given an attractive label, marked with the tax year of its contents, lined up neatly (chronologically of course) and placed along a top shelf out of the way.

The ‘atomic’ influenced items we sell in our shop are always popular – especially the coat hooks and magazine racks. They look good and are useful and functional. This atomic magazine rack being sold by & in support of Isabel Hospice* is fairly unusual in its shape – a little more fancy than the norm. Its perfect for storing & displaying this month’s interiors mags… or even vintage 1950s copies of Vogue!

*Isabel Hospice is a charity needing to raise nearly 4 million per annum to provide their free services to the people of eastern Hertfordshire. Their ethos is that they treat the whole person, not simply the illness. They offer a complete hospice service through their team of community nurse specialists, a 16 bed in-patient hospice, a day hospice, out-reach day hospices, hospice at home and a family support and bereavement service.
