The charts shown on this page of our web catalog will NOT show up on our regular catalog or sale pages ... they can ONLY be found on our SNT CLASSICS page .. and you can do keyword searches on that page as well! The charts in this section are from our store overstock .. from chart swaps .. from inventory customers have turned over to us (due to deaths in family, etc). We try to tell you in the description exactly what it is you are looking at. That means that we now have TWO separate SALE pages for you ... our regular SALE page where you'll find items from our regular catalog, as well as our former shop models that are now for sale ... and our SNT CLASSICS page with a whole new kettle of 'sale' charts for you to peruse!!

Or, you can send us a SASE (legal sized, 4 1/8" x 9 1/2" self-addressed stamped envelope) and we'll mail them right off to you!
Mom update. She fell last Saturday ... she was very confused and agitated Friday and Saturday and the aides found they couldn't leave her alone. They were taking her with them on their 'rounds' and while two aides had to go into a room for an assist, mom tried leaping out of her wheelchair and of course, ended up on the floor. She's in some pain, not terrible but some, and her leg is somewhat swollen, but her mood is now very good! I was up there Wednesday and while she once again doesn't know who I am (apparently I'm Alice again, her grade school friend), we had a good time looking at photo albums and talking about the people pictured there. Mom doesn't recognize anyone from minimum the last 10 years, but show her pictures from the 1940's and early 1950's, and she'll name everyone in the picture and maybe tell a little story. It would have been a much better visit IF while looking at a picture of my grandmother and one of her friends, mom hadn't joyously exclaimed ... "that's Mother and look .. that's you there with her!". deep sigh
I have to have everything out of her apartment and it cleaned by end of the business day on Tuesday. It's been a busy week so far .. and I have the weekend to get through yet. So far I've hauled small furniture items and boxes and boxes of knick knaks and fine glassware to the local consignment shop (they accepted about half of it all -- I think I'll take what they didn't take to another shop .. just to see), and have even more boxes to take to a thrift store as donations. Am going to try to get up to see mom on Monday ... I have people coming on Saturday and Sunday to take the rest of her furniture .. I just don't know 'when' they are coming on those days, so am planning for Monday to be a 'free day'.
Ok .. I think that's that. Don't forget .. you have until Saturday night at midnight EST to take advantage of our Free Shipping Birthday Gift Special .. and be entered into the drawing for Week #4's Gift! Then, Sunday morning, I'll be emailing, tweeting, face booking, and posting to the What's New page letting you know what YOUR BIRTHDAY GIFT is for week #5 ... our FINAL WEEK of SNT's "WE TURN 21" Birthday Extravaganza! And a reminder ... even though the shop is closed tomorrow through Monday, our email box is waiting to hear from you and our online catalog never closes. We even have an answering machine!
We thank our men and women in the military and remember those who gave their lifes in service. Have a safe and great holiday weekend everyone!
