This past weekend, I had the pleasure of stumbling into the oddest little thrift shop in Sewanee, Tennessee. I picked up this April 1996 issue of VOGUE magazine for the low, low price of 10 cents. When I returned home, I Googled the issue, leading me to an Ebay listing for the same magazine for $24! Talk about a bargain!
As I was flipping through the magazine, I had a sudden spark of cleverness.
I'm going to start a collection of VOGUE magazines!
I'm going to keep them in pristine condition, and I'm going to resist the urge to rip out all my favorite pages.
And someday, when I'm old and gray, I'll have this massive collection of perfect VOGUE magazines dating back to forever ago.
I think this has the potential to be really incredible.
