Willrett Heirs Rudolph Willrett, Agent QIUNN & YUNGKBEUG, Auctioneers FRANK Goes To Chicago Furniture Market display their newest productions, and Frank is selecting merchandise that will be shipped to Bjustrom's for spring-selling. Meanwhile, Roy Bjustrom, store owner, will act as baby-sitter for the four Moulton girls. In this, he will receive_ capable as--- sistance from his wife, Florence, but in informed circles it is felt that Florence will likely _do most of the baby-sitting, while Roy will claim the honors. Roy will himself visit Chicago later, to inspect the market's offerings, also. Mr Moullon, while at the market, will make selections of furniture, carpet, drapery, and other ; homefurnishings items. He is visiting the displays and booths of all major lines in Chicago, and his selections will be slated for spring showing .at ihe Bjustrom store here. In Chicago, Mr and Mrs Moulton will be jo'nad by a buyer from a New York homefurnish- ings store, who is also bringing his wife to the semi-annual show. The two couples will attend the market together. This buyer served with Frank in the Navy Air Corps during World War II, and the two ex-servicemen have maintained their friendship ever since. They also met when the ROY He's Baby Sitting . two attended an Alexander Smith Carpet School in the Bronx, N. Y., from which Frank graduated with a carpet expert's certificate. The Chicago homefurnishings market, held just twice each year, is a vast showing of furniture and furnishings for the home. In the two immense buildings, it covers arces of space, lined with scores of displays of merchandise, and visiting buyers must be prepared to walk many miles to visit them all. Experts in all lines man the displays, and give complete details on the merchandise. It is at this market, also, that the very newest in homefurnishinqs are on display, for selection by visiting store buyers. Frank will be rubbing elbows with buyers from the greatest stores in the country at this market. During Frank's market visit, Roy will as usual be on duty to assist customers at Bjustrom's store here — that is, when he can get away from his bafay-sit- Jing duties. Before leaving for Chicago, Dorothea Moulton was heard admonishing grandpa: "Now don't load the kids up with candy — we want them to be on their feel when we gel back!" On his return from Ihe market, Frank will have news of the purchases made for Bjuslrom's Furniture, which will display these new homefurnishings within the space of a few weeks.
