It is pretty hard to make a choice sometimes in Washing ton's unusual furniture store when customers come in and want to select a bedroom set, a suite of furniture for the dining room or perhaps a davenport for the living room. We say this because, frankly, our stock is so large that sometimes it is difficult to reach a decision. The members of this concern have made the subject of proper household furniture an earnest and constant study for many years. If you were looking at two styles of dressers or two beds almost alike and were puzzled as to the choice to make, as are the parties in this picture, we could help you out, bccausc we would know, after talking with you and getting a description of your home, what would suit best in the surroundings you had described. Won't you pay us a visit, please, and spend a little time going over the hundreds of pieces of thoroughbred furniture that this store is showing? You are always welcome here. Come! Mayer & Co.
