Hi!  I am writing from a group of ladies who are organizing a Los Angeles Zine Fest in early 2012. We want to have a FREE event with 60-70 vendors from all over the country (and world even!) participate to celebrate zines in a way that Los Angeles hasn't embraced, on a large scale, in quite a while. We have entered a contest that will fund the idea with the most votes with a $2,500 prize and we need your help! If you'd like to support zine culture and community by helping us create a fest in…See More

I totally didn't see this until today so I didn't drop them off yesterday. I'll call over there later today and see when he closes up so maybe I can drop them off sometime this week after work.

Also, I love trading. I'm really slagging on mail lately though but maybe I can leave a few things for you with the bags. ;)

Don's Music is right around the corner from my place! I'd be more than happy to drop them off. Do you know when he's open? Let me know when would be a good time so he'll know to expect them. Thanks again. ;)

Rhea- I have three Trader Joe's paper grocery bags full of zines & ads & other independently published goodies. I'd LOVE to donate them locally. I'm in Eagle Rock right now so if you're in Northeast, we should be pretty close if you hit up places like Pehrspace & The Smell. Let's figure something out! :)
