Lumber Jack Shirt a Winner

Congratulations to all concerned at Cottage Life.

Back on June 12th, 2017, I blogged about Cottage Life’s fabulous Going North Cover, which went on sale May 29th, at a $7.99 cover price. (You can see original post by searching the CoversSell.com archives for June 2017).  It was Cottage Life’s unique take on Canada’s 150th birthday.

I fell in love with this cover…one of the best, most creative, and clever covers ever by this venerable brand, in my opinion.

So, how did it sell?  Sales were up 13% from the same issue last year!

Plus it was the 2nd best seller of the 2017 year, in a year when Cottage Life posted gains on 4 of their 6 issues…an excellent accomplishment.
