Is it just us or are the sales beginning much earlier this year? Most of them started up in late november instead of the usual January sale. Maybe they’re getting a jump on those folks who avoid pulling the trigger finger in december. Maybe the sheer amount of stores selling the same or very similar goods has gotten to be too much to the consumer. Whatever the reason you can find this Stephan Schneider at a knocked off price, which is a good thing. The fact that you can buy it from the store which was mentioned in “How to Make it in America” is an added bonus. South Willard has it.
