L. .MICHAELS, Owner 193 S. FEDERAL AVE. THAT'S A LESSON TAUGHT BY LATE BUSINESS PLUNGE Stores Abound With Rare Bargains in Unusual Values. One lesson that the depression has taught us is the wisdom of giving- useful, permanent gifts for Christmas. They're even more welcome than frivolous presents, ns a rule, and certainly more practical. And one of the lu-ppiest gift ideals for cither an entire family or an individual is furniture. Mtny families have, in fact, adopted the custom of joining; together in giving the home one really worthwhile gift--such as a fine chnir, a lovely table, or perhaps a secretaire--instead of remembering each other with various small gifts. Say It With Gifts, The stores abound this winter with rare bargains in well-designed furniture--values which are especially tempting because their replacement prices would be much higher, due to the recent soaring of wholesale furniture coats. So hurry to your favorite furniture or department store nnd make up a gift list that will combine your holiday sentiments of hind wishes and affection with the maximum h. practical usefulness and permanence. If you decide to say "Merry Christmas" with furniture, but do not happen to know of any pieces that are particular!}' needed, don't let that malcc you hesitate. For there are countless types of occasional furniture that any home will joyfully welcome. There really can't be too many small tables for example, in a house--and there is nearly always room and need for another lamp or so, a bookcase, chair, or cabinet. Offer Variety. Small tables certainly are one of the most charming gift ideas, and the wide variety o f styles nnd types is perfectly fascinating. If your friends or family go in for early American maple, there are lots o£ unusual small tables on the market You couldn't mention anyone to save your life who wouldn't love to receive some useful little piece of furniture this Christmas. Here are wonderful values-money savers at Tyler-Ryan's. Lounging Chairs Good looking, large and comfortable, covered in new weave tapestry. Smoking Cabinets §6.75 Occasional Tables $8.50 End Tables $2.95 Floor Lamps $4.95 which will be especially acceptable as g-ifts. The out-of-the-way sections of New England have been combed for quaint designs by several enterprising manufacturers of maple furniture and you may now find many lovely small tables which recall some of the amusing old pieces of early Colonial times. For the home which is furnished in the more formal manner of the eighteenth century English or French periods, in early Jacobean or Renaissance furniture, in the smart vogue for nineteenth century; decoration of the Directoire, Empire or Biedermier types, or in the modernc style, there are just as many appropriate Christmas gift ideas In the realm of small tables. Coffee tables and end tables offer an appealing variety of styles. An example of the stunning new designs which are being developed in modern furniture is a coffee table in sapphire glass and chromium. Muffin stands of traditional design, but made of chromium and glass, give a smart modern accent to a room when used as «nd tables. And when j'ou're deciding what to give, just remember that most women have an unusual fondness for nestn of tables, which prove so Useful and attractive on such occasions as an informal Sunday evening tea around the fireplace. Other Ideas Given. Other cift ideas in the way of tables may include drop-leaf Pembroke, drum-top tables, tier tables tilt-tops, console styles for the hall little butterfly tables and magazine stands. It's now a popular fash- on to have a good looking perma- lent card tables group in one cornel of the living room, library or sun- ·oo m. A certain way tc please a man is to give him an exceedingly comfortable lounging chair, especially if It's of the F^glish club type and smart' y upholstered in red, green, brown or blue leather. A good desk with plenty of elbow room will also cle- ight the man of the family, but be sure that it's n. solid, substantia .ype. Many walnut or dark oak desks have been designed in fine authentic period styles, such as Tecobean. William and Mary, or the simpler Georgian periods; and you can sure find the gentleman's favorite type among the fine varieb of table desks which the stores ari now showing. There are a multitude of furniture gifts this season that will win a genuine welcome from even the most particular woman or girl.
