Catalogs from the Editor’s Bookshelf

Compiled by Barbara Cheadle, Editor, Future Reflections

As editor of a national publication, I get lots of unsolicited material—including lots of catalogs (that’s not a complaint, by the way, merely an observation). The list below is, literally, a list of the catalogs on my bookshelf today. The catalogs offer products that I believe readers would find useful, or would like to know about. I make no claim, however, about the reliability of the companies offering the products, quality of products, price, etc. It is not a comprehensive list of catalogs, a list of the best, or worst, or anything else. It is exactly what I have said: a list of relatively current catalogs that have shown up in my mail basket.
