DRESSES I guess they call them frocks. Well, what ever they are. I have about 300 of them and sure want to tell them. They came the same day we closed the sale of Ocne'a stocX. They ar» new. right from the factory. They are all 80 square* and vat dyed, an sices from 16 to 40, all hemmed and bordered like a monkey's tail and ready for use. I like the ladtes and like to sell them slippers and hosiery. I know how to fit shoes. It has become a second nature of mine. I do not know anything about dresses and what Is more, I do not want to learn. It is out of my line. All I want Ijs to get rid of the blame things and thought this week while I am running my shoe sale would be a good tune to shed them. So out they go at your choice for 83c- Everyone says they are beautiful. They are light) flimsy, and flully. You can read a newspaper through any of them. You are not allowed to try thorn on in th-« store unless you have plenty of other clothes on to start with. No exchanges no approvals and If you g*t money bock on any of them it will be over my dead body. I will feel grateful to everyone buying these dresses as you ore taking something oil my hands that I never did want. I will be glad to tak^ care of your feet, and have a big line of comfort slippers on hand so when warm weather comes I can take car« of your corns and bunions, but no more dresses for me.
