The Year Is Ending in Lively Fashion at
All surplus stocks?all kinds, colors and styles of everything not
to be re-bought are being disposed of!
Our losses average 35% to 50% of the original prices, and the best part
of it is that these are not really old goods. We never let things stay long
enough in this shop to come in that category. Most people know this. And
so this Year-End Sale is sweeping everything before it! The sooner you
come the greater the chance: but there are big quantities?so if you don't
get one thing you'll find another! Three days yet remain!
