THE SHOPPING TOUR OF Rambhai Barni Her name is Rambhai Barni, and her husband is the only absolute monarch left in the world. She has more jewels than the sky has stars, and nothing is unattainable to her if money will buy it. But even Rambhai Barni can't find in Siam all the luxuries that her feminine heart delights in. And when she came (o the United States last spring she had the pleasure of a real American shopping trip . .. from which she returned with seventy-eight pairs of Amer- ican silk slockmys and fifty-five pairs of American kid gloves. How much more fortunate ihe American woman is! She doesn't have lo buy a year's supply of stockings ... or of anything else . . . all at once. She buys only as she needs or wishes, confident that the best the entire world can produce is offered for her choice today, tomorrow, or next month. And advertising is her buying guide.
