Attention of the Ladies
For the past two seasons we have made very large purchases
of stylish ready-to-wear dresses in silks, georgette, serge and
other popular material, and have had to re order many times
during the season. We have proven to the ladies of Edgef ield
that they do not have to go to the cities for these goods. We
carry a large assortment to select from, and can save them
money on every purchase. For the fall season that is almost
upon us we have bought much heavier than ever of ladies'
ready-to-wear goods of all kinds, and we invite the ladies to
come in to see these new arrivals.
The young ladies who will soon leave for college and especial
