June Sale of Dinnerware
74 Open Stock Patterns (AZZ Neu)
25 Patterns Include Theodore Haviland China
For the Month of June 20 Discount
In Magnitude, in Economies Offered, in
Quality, This Dinnerware Has No Competitor
One naturally selects dinnerware for the home with much the same
discrimination as one selects a painting.
That is the attitude which guided us in the selection of our dinner
ware. English, French, German, Austrian, American.
First we selected what was right from the quality standpoint; sec
ond, we selected what was right from the artistic standpoint. ,
Ours is a NEW DINNERWARE STORE, therefore all re
ductions are figured from new dinnerware. People have come to
know in the short space of a year the pre-eminent position of our din
As an example of what you will find marked at June White Sale
prices, we chronicle a few of the special sets:
$15 Austrian China Dinner Set $7.95
Of 1 00 pieces, showing three different spray designs.
$38 Theodore Haviland Dinner Set $24.95
1 00-piece set, showing six different decorations, Chantilly
shape. - -
American Semi-Porcelain Dinner Set $4.00
50-piece set in plain white.
$20 French China Dinner Set $12.98
1 00-piece set, decorated in four different designs.
English Flow Blue Dec. Porcelain Set $6.65

The Lipman-Wolfe Store is
like a mountain glade. People
seek it eagerly, find comfort in
its coolness and follow with sat
isfaction and profit the ever
changing panorama of good mer
chandise. Broad aisles, a perfect
ventilating plant, sanitary fixtures,
rugged and carpeted floors afford
relief and quiet and make shop
ping in this store delightful.
What a change has taken
place within the last few years
in store equipment. Look around
about you. As an example, see
the wonderfully equipped meat
markets, with their tiled floors,
walls and ceiling, glass showcases
and marble counters and cold
storage glass meat chests. Are
people afraid to trade there be
cause of these improvements?
Would people be satisfied now
with fly-blown meats or dust-covered
fruits and vegetables? WE
THINK NOT. The same con
ditions hold good in the modern
department store. When we first
moved into this new store some
merchants whispered about, MYou
can't shop there. Look at the ex
pensive fixtures and up-to-date
equipment. Why, their prices
will be high. They will
make you pay for it." How
absurd. Like good merchandise,
we figured that the best equipment
was the cheapest.
This store does not sell fix-,
tures. It sells merchandise. THE
BEST ONLY AND FOR
LESS MONEY THAN
YOU PAY ELSEWHERE
FOR INFERIOR GOODS.
That the public has come to ap
preciate this fact is proven by the
ever-increasing popularity of this
store of SERVICE, COUR
TESY AND DEPENDA
BILITY. Tomorrow we start
our June White and Clearance
Sales. We make the prediction
that more people by double will
attend this sale than any other
like event in the city -that the
economic opportunities are great
er and far more abundant.
