My LQS has an old Wash Tub at the entrance that contains old quilt magazine that shoppers drop off as a magazine trading service. I just dropped off all my mother's old quilt magazines there. I think I got rid of about 50 magazines and I only took one in trade, I still have probably 150-200 magazines, but those are my favorites! I have only actually used one pattern out of all my magazines but they are my inspiration for many. My favorites are my Quilting Arts magazines, which I store in the cheap magazine holders I usually just pick up from thrift shops.
