    Comment: The Fall 2020 issue is amazingly wonderful. Thank you for putting out a magazine geared toward my passion of all things antique, primitive, and in this particular case…fall, my favorite time of year! And I’m so excited about the mug swap again! This will be my third year participating.

  • Dee from Bedford, IN

    Comment: I love all the antique and primitive decor photos and how to display differently. The farmhouse looks are nice too. So much to look at and read about, and even dream about, makes for a relaxing time to look through this beautiful magazine.

  • Patricia from Newfane, New York

    Comment: I received the Fall issue today and am currently trying to "pace" myself looking through it. I am enjoying all of the homes decorated in primitive furnishings. Our home is filled with many primitive items and I treasure them all. I like the memory of how we acquired each piece. Your magazine has so many wonderful ideas for seasonal decorating; I enjoy them all.

  • Winnie from Gainesville, Florida

    Comment: When I found Mercantile Magazine and then Country Rustic Magazine, it was happiness and excitement! Finally, a magazine with stories and photos of primitive homes and articles from wonderful everyday people who have turned their passion of historical history into homes and lifestyles that created these extraordinary examples. I also enjoy all of the articles dedicated on how to make antique reproductions, wonderful recipes and examples of cooking in the past, and stories and articles of pieces of life now gone.

    Comment: Thank you so much for doing the online summer 2020 issue! You did an amazing job and very much enjoyed it, especially the tobacco stick ideas, awesome summer tomato ideas and summer decorating ideas. Please stay safe and healthy during these challenging times. Great job!

  • Belinda from Jonesboro, AR

    Comment: So my husband and I love the primitive, rustic style decor. He surprised me one day by bringing home this new magazine called COUNTRY RUSTIC. I am proud to say….I am hooked on this magazine. I absolutely love the intriguing, descriptive writing of each featured home, its decor, and every idea mentioned. Subscription is a MUST!!!

  • Jude from Allons, Tennessee

    Comment: Just wanted to let you know how much I love your magazine! I have been a subscriber for many years. I have gotten so many ideas from you. And, I received the beautiful notecards I ordered this afternoon along with a nice note from DJ and calendar. Thank you so much! I gave your notecards to several friends for Christmas and they loved them. So glad I found you all those years ago.

  • Debby from Oneida, New York

    Comment: I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoy and love vet your magazine. After 22 surgeries, allergic to all pain medication and being disabled, my favorite way to take my mind off pain is reading your magazine over and over and lighting a favorite candle. The Christmas issue is absolutely amazing! Thanks so much for the great job you all do.

  • Candace from Oquawka, Illinois

    Comment: Found your magazine at Barnes and Nobles bookstore. Fell in love immediately with your fall issue and have subscribed for 2020. You give me wonderful ideas for my own home. Country and antiques is what we love. Thank you for making a great magazine.

  • Deborah from Manchester, NJ

    Comment: What do i Love about Country Rustic Magazine, EVERYTHING. As I look through each page I imagine myself in each scene. Each page is better then the next and it gives me a warm feeling inside. I have told my family and friends this is a must have.

  • Susan from Toledo, Ohio

    Comment: I just wanted to write a note to say how much I enjoy your magazine! I have all but three issues of Mercantile Gatherings (looking for those elusive issues that I don’t have!) and I have all of the Country Rustic issues. I look at them each season, over and over. I have been reading country-style magazines for over 30 years, and one of the things I love about your magazine is that it is inspiring but also do-able! Thank you for continuing to publish a terrific magazine!

  • Suzanne from Paris, Ky

    Comment: Your magazine is a welcome respite in my very busy world! I look forward to every issue and I also even love your advertisers! You all speak my language!

  • Dee from Bedford, IN

    Comment: I love Country Rustic magazine, also when it was Mercantile Gatherings. There are so many beautiful homes, some very period-style, that are featured, along with interesting info on a variety of topics. I collect antiques and prefer early to primitive decorating, but the farmhouse and others are intriguing as well. I like how you can take us back in time through the beautiful photos(I can get lost in dreamland!). Keep up the good work! Win or not, I look forward to finding the newest issue soon!
