200 Men's and Women's Fur Coats
To mark the opening of the season of 1905-1906, we have arranged a special exhibit of our new stock
of fine Fur Coats, comprising one of the choicest collections ever brought into the state of Vermont.
These Fur Coats have been chosen with great care by Mr. Goodnow, the originator of the Goodnow system of stores, who has had
over 20 years of experience in buying Fur Coats. Mr. Goodnow spent several days at the factory in making the selections of Fur Coats
for our 9 stores, and personally and carefully examined every Fur Coat before it left the factory. Now we rest assured that there is not
one coat in any of our 9 stores that is 'not a perfect garment in every detail.
The many thousand dollars' worth we buy every year has put us in close touch with the largest manufacturers in the United States.
Buying at first hand we are often able to take advantage of special opportunities to buy at less than usual prices. We have been par
ticularly fortunate in purchasing our present stock, and in accordance with our small profit principles, we shall sell at prices that will set a
new standard of Fur Coat values.. The collection which we now show embraces a wide variety of styles and grades in the most popular
and desirable Fur Coats obtainable. There is a special advantage in buying now, because assortments are larger than at any other time.
We call your particular attention to the elegant fur lined and raccoon coats.
We show a great variety of garments in Raccoon, Australian Calf, Kangaroo, Wambat, Wallaby, Galloway Cow, Russian Dog, and
last but not least, the celebrated "Arna" Buffalo Cloth Coats which for low priced garments have no equal.
