PRETTY NOSTALGIC MAGAZINE
Pretty Nostalgic are also currently looking for new members and businesses to join their Pretty Nostalgic Society.
"Do you revel in nostalgia? Yearn for gentler, more civilised times? Would you rather live a more hands-on, less commercialised existence?
Yes...? – Then join the Pretty Nostalgic Society. It is the perfect antidote to the greedy, corporate, lacklustre and often unfriendly modern world.
We are a group of history and vintage-loving souls, who delight in our brilliantly British lifestyle. We try to live in a creative and sustainable way, enjoy crafting, making, baking, growing, sewing, brewing, preserving, foraging, upcycling and what’s more we love sharing our skills with others.
We are not about giving up technology and permanently time warping back to the 1940s (Not unless you want to of course!)
We feel that modern ways aren’t always good and that old-fashioned ways weren’t always bad; we strive to find a balance and to live in a way that makes us proud and fills us with a sense of achievement and pleasure rather than purely existing in an out-of-control world, dictated to by others, feeling unsatisfied and surrounded by mass consumer tat! We are committed to supporting independent British makers, small independent shops and businesses and those who supply handmade, vintage, antique or upcycled goods and services. We want to put our hard-earned cash into the hands of those who deserve it!"
The Motto of the Pretty Nostalgic Society is
SPEND WISELY, WASTE LESS, APPRECIATE MORE.
