Sometimes you just need a little help - and that's where zines come in. Usually just low priced "booklets" that give you a dose of what you need - real talk, how-to, or just some tips to not give a f*ck. The link below gives you the Microcosm website where all of their zines are listed, some are available in edelweiss as well towards the bottom of the fall catalog. 

These have been doing really great in a few of my stores, enjoy!   - Maureen
