"1,000th Etsy Sale" Sale

Never would have imagined it, but we're almost up to our 1,000th sale on Etsy! Which is weird. What we thought would be a small side outlet at the beginning of 2010 has become a daily operation.

The "Sorry for Missing Portland Zine Symposium" Sale

Many people have now expressed their concern/surprise/sadness that we didn't make it to the Portland Zine Symposium this year and we just wanted to say: sorry! Through a variety of busy summer plans, we weren't able to get it together this year- even though we always do it and we know that's the way a lot of people connect with us every year.

As a way of saying sorry, we're having a sale this week! There are two ways to go about it (you can do both, too):

1. Order $10+ from… Continue

August Feature of the Month: 8-Track Mind!

A few weeks ago I got the pleasure of being in Chicago for the first time and, as is required of a zine enthusiast, spending my first extended period of time at Quimby's, the legendary bookstore that carries more zines than any retail location I've ever seen. After being… Continue

Distro Update for July

These days, the Ms Valerie Park Distro is glamorously operating from many different locations at once. We’re in Olympia packing orders and stocking shelves and (at the same time!) out on the road doing paperwork and responding to emails. It makes us feel big, grand even. But we’re trying to not let…

The Great American Zine Novella

Forgot to mention this: the first six issues of Without Words & Without Kneeling have been compiled into one giant awesome zine! It's great. As far as what it is, it's like this...

"Tomas Moniz (Rad Dad creator and editor) has been doing something unprecedented of late- a serialized novella in zine form. Not your standard zine fare. It's a story unveiled…

Almost Gone!

Just realized there's a long list of things about to go out of print and/or out of stock and maybe a little 'last chance warning' was in order. There were so many I forewent the descriptions and just provided links, please forgive my haste.

Etsy Sale

I've been looking for an excuse to use one of those coupon codes on Etsy for a while now and I guess being on the verge of our 500th sale on there is a good enough one. So, until the end of the month, you get 15% off any purchase, whenever you use the code below.

When we started it last year, I thought it would just be a few extra sales, so it's been a wonderful surprise. Thanks.…

Gardening zine recommendations?

Hey, thought I'd ask again this year since didn't find anything last time around: anyone know of/make a good zine on gardening? I'm a big gardener and would really love to distro a good guide. I find the books out there are a little intimidating to the beginner, so I've always thought it'd be a good place for a zine to step up to the job, but have yet to find something.
