This Then Announces the Most Important
SALE of NEW EMBROIDERIES
That We Ever Offered
In announcing this event we wish to impress the fact strongly, that this is one of the most advantageous embroidery sales we
have ever held. The beautiful designs and dainty materials produced ir. St. Gall for the 1913 season are really beyond descrip
tion. Coupled with our own importations, we secured several large lots of skirtings, edgings, waistings, etc., from an importer who
was compelled to take back large lots of embroideries from a number of shirt waist and underwear manufacturers, who were af
fected by the extended strike of garment workers in their lines they simply wouldn't accept their purchases, and that's how we
got so many of these dainty new embroideries at such a big sacrifice swiss corset covers, beautifully finished convent edges, made
on nainsook cloth voiles, embroidered with heavy designs all-overs, rich bands, galloons, etc. Here are a few of the items:
