Less than 3 weeks until issue 1!

Wow, where has the time gone? One minute it's New Year's Eve, the next it's 12th March! Crazy. We have been working hard on issue 1, so what can you expect?

Features with all kinds of interesting people, including:
* a popular dating app
* an excellent alternative wedding gift
* pizzas, but not as you know them
* someone who knows all about window displays
* a very dapper way of dressing
* our 24 favourite wish list items
and much, much more!

As well as independent retailers, we are also featuring charities and community projects. We have also covered some big literary anniversaries, and we can't wait to share with you all news about retailers who are launching for the first time during April, May and June!

As with any magazine, we of course have adverts, but everyone who has an advert is an independent retailer, event or charity, so it's great to be featuring independent people from cover to cover!

Don't forget to subscribe here (scroll to the bottom of the page) if you want to receive the magazine on our launch day of Friday 1st April. We can't wait for you to see it!
