Newsletter for July!

So, it took a while, but summer has finally come to the northwest. A week ago I was wearing three layers of sweaters and now I'm wearing short shorts. It's pretty good. A couple things- one, bestsellers. The list I made at the end of last year seemed to be a total hit (everybody love lists), so I made one for the first half of this year. I also made a whole pile of new bookmark/flyers (four different… Continue

Gardening Zines?

Hey, does anyone make/know of any good gardening zines? I've tried to carry some in the past and nobody has ever come through. I'm an avid gardener and it's the season, so I would really like to carry something on the subject! Shoot me an email if you have any suggestions: msvaleriepark(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks! -JJ

New Issue of Rad Dad!

Rad Dad #17 just came our way yesterday and we're pretty excited. It's a favorite of mine, and this issue (the anarchy issue) has Olympia's own Sky Cosby interviewing Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground! Two real awesome folks. Sky co-runs Last Word Books here in Olympia, is the owner of the Last Earth Distro and does web and print things as Pirate Papa.…

New Zines Up!

A few new ones up...

Loose Lips Sink Ships (Zine) ($2)- In Loose Lips, Ms May delves into the dangerous territory of the make-out zine; a genre that gets a lot of flack, yes, (and usually rightfully so), but this, like all her zines, is done really well and focused in a way that changes it into something else entirely. A short description for each… Continue

Almost Gone!

Just sold out of a couple things and it just made me realize how many things are almost gone! So I made a list. Most of these are down to their last 1 or 2 copies and are going to be out of print when they're gone. The rest I'm just very unsure how long it will take to get them back in. So, it's yr last chance for most of these! We'll be taking them off as they sell out, so if the links don't work, that's why.…

Etsy Page

So, about a month ago we started an Etsy page and we've been slowly adding more and more to it. While it represents less than half our stock, it does seem a little more focused towards to the interest of our fellow zinesters and has a bettter shipping scale than our website, especially for international orders. We're setting up a new website, which will have a better shopping cart, but until then, I might point you folks who want to… Continue

Newsletter for March

Hello and welcome to yet another month of the year. It's an early spring here in the northwest part of the U.S. and things are plugging away as usual here at Ms Valerie Park, plenty of newness and many exciting things on their way. The spring seems so ripe with projects, tours, and travel, that I doubt I'll get a proper night's sleep until the end of June, but I'd like to think I'm ok with that. Hope all you out there are doing just as fine (but hopefully getting more sleep).… Continue

New Blank Books and Zines from Eberhardt Press

Portland's Eberhadt Press is really great; they off-set print everything themselves, use all reused/recycled paper, and keep it real cheap. We're pretty happy to be carrying some of our favorites from them...

Criminal: Writings of Isabelle Eberhardt (Zine) ($3)

Free to Choose: A Woman's Guide to… Continue

Newsletter for February!

Februrary is pretty epic. This month bring a slew of newness, especially as far as zines are concerned. With subjects ranging from radical parenting to the non-traditional use of classical instruments, I'm always happy to carry more zines that don't have the usual themes. As much as I love a good perzine about riding a bike to get donuts with one's friends, I like ones about revolutionary locksmiths and lifelong non-religious virginity much better. We restocked a ton of stuff, too, and there's… Continue

Jesus Christ Superzine & Etsy

Two things.

1. Jesus Christ Superzine #1 has released its second (revised) edition. Now, I know it's not common for zinesters to do (or at least announce) this, but Ariel isn't the most common of zinesters. Don't worry, it hasn't become a slick, glossy thing, just edited, added to, and a touch easier to read. Description: The second edition of Ariel Birks'… Continue

New!

This month is panning out to be fairly epic; we're adding almost 20 new titles and restocking 15 we've been out of for a while...possibly testing the distro/personal space ratio, we'll see. I am waiting until everything has arrived to send out this month's newsletter, but I thought I'd give a what's new, so far, in the zine department.

After months of being out of stock, we just got more of one of my favorite zines, Funwater Awesome. All our great, #2 is my favorite.…

Newsletter for January

Hello friends, and welcome to a new year. Hopefully everyone has decompressed from the stress of the holidays and you all have yr resolutions made and whatnot. I've moved into a new space, which is really small compared to my last, so I started the year off by getting rid of a bunch of stuff, which felt really good. I also got a bunch of new stuff for the distro, which felt equally good (honestly, i'd rather have stacks of records and zines than bags of yarn i haven't used in years). Anyway,… Continue
