Almost incredible that hats of such rich, lovely fabrics
modeled in hosts of the newest shapes and in fashion's
most exquisite shades, could even through a special pur
chase acclai i such a low price as $2.79.
The cheapness, however, is only in tho price, as
the same quality velvet, same workmanship arid
reflections of the newest modes are not sur
passed in much higher priced hats. Included
are large, small and medium size hats, with
special emphasis given to new
draped crowns,, new shirred
edges and unusual flange
new colors, are
hazelnut brown, platinum
grey, cherry red, almond
green, Venetian blue, pheas
ant, and numerous other shades,
Navy blue and black. Very little
additional trimmings are required to make these hats
ready-to-wear, and wondrous selections are presented
for your approval also very moderately priced!
