I Duty to Warn
You?
that most of the imported
toys will no doubt be sold
before the final rush.
No toys have been imported
from Germany
this year and while we i
have as many as usual especially
so in dolls, we
know we will be literally
swamped with customers
as soon as the public is
aware of this?
Most stores have none
at all and those who have
are asking exhorbitant :
prices, while our stocks
last prices will remain as j
moderate as ever. But
we urge early choosing
by those who DON'T want !
to DISAPPOINT the
CHILDREN.
