(In accessibility NB: Junior a Gazette is up a flight of stairs and has no lift.)
Our friends at Jitter Records host the inaugural Jitter Fest next Sunday in Sydney! The dress up theme is punk rock xmas: how can you resist?
Speaking of XMAS: the following weekend – Sunday 14 December – we’ll once again open the doors to our secret headquarters – Junior Gazette – for a zine open day so you can get all the zines you want from the Take Care stable, sans postage. More details to come, stay tuned!
Hello, finally found the time and head-space to do a bit of long overdue shop-site retuning. We have added descriptions to some of the zines that have been languishing, undescribed, for the past month, including the Refugee Art Project Zines, The Good Son, I am a Camera #17, La Petite Mort, The Time You Were in Paris and The Nostalgia Prescription.
The aim is to have all the descriptions updated before adding any more new zines, of which, as aforementioned, we have many. And many and many.
While I’m here, let me tell you that we will be at this zine fair, next weekend!
Organised by the City of Sydney with the aid of the estimable Nicholas Beckett, we hope to see you there!
We are drowning in zines. We’re back from holiday and slowly getting back into updating the Take Care shop. We’ve got quite a back log of new zines to add and also quite a few descriptions to update, so keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of weeks, cuz we’re gonna get stuck into it. Thanks everyone who’s ordered from the new site since we launched it! We trust it’s been slightly easier to use than the old set up.
Also, I just wanted to mention that one of the issues of YOU that arrived this week is particularly beautiful. Pick up a copy from Sticky in Melbourne, or from us when you place an order for other zines. (We haven’t put YOU on the new site yet – sorry for the tardiness – but let us know in the note to merchant field in Paypal if you’d like it to be added to your order.)
Take Care is having a holiday! Our last visit to the post office will be tomorrow afternoon, so if you want zines urgently order now. Any orders placed after 3pm tomorrow will not be posted until we get back, two weeks from now.
Our favourite shop is our new shop!
As well as having a lot of really amazing new zines in stock, we have built an entirely new mail order shop from which to purchase them! It is HERE!
We were fond of the old shop template we used, but it was quite difficult and time-consuming for us to update, and made it complicated to add options for international postage. So we decided to move everything over to a site with a dedicated shop template. It looks a lot snazzier than our old shop, but the main benefits are those that I’ve just mentioned: it’s HEAPS easier for us to update, and probably heaps easier for you to order from, too. There’s also more room for pictures of inside pages of zines, so you don’t have to rely on our sometimes haphazard descriptions to get an idea of what you’re buying, hurrah!
We’ve checked and double checked and triple checked the new site for bugs, but if you do notice anything going wrong when you order, please let us know!
And yes, you can now order from outside Australia without having to worry about weights and emailing us etc.
There are still a few more things to transfer over from the old shop, but there are a lot of new things up as well, including:
As usual, bear with us while we write descriptions for some of this new stuff. And there’s more new stuff to come: we’re restocking Tamara Lazaroff’s zines, and Nine’s Sex Industry Apologist, and others.
And finally, we will be at the NYWF/TINA zine fair next Sunday! See you there.
