They appeal to the purse, too, Because most of them are surprisingly inexpensive. For the home- monicurer, there is much to choose from. One brand is put up in a. shiny black box which looks very good to this shopper. For the lady bountiful who serves Sunday night suppers and ordinary week night suppers too, there is a decorative dish all divided and subdivided which will contain different kinds of sandwich filling, relishes and other culinary delights.
