Briefs & Bookmarks: Chez soi, Covet Garden, Coast to Coast
The 35th anniversary issue of Chez soi, on sale from April 11 to May 9, saw an increase in newsstand sales of over 250% according to TVA Publications.

The issue was sold for a special "vintage" price of $1.99, down from the regular $4.99. Chez soi also ran a reader contest tied to the occasion and TVA reports a 161% increase in web page views during the contest period.

Covet Garden reached its IndieGoGo campaign goal. The online mag sought $18,000 in donations to help produce a one-time special print edition, and has since raised over $20,000.
