"Jammed" doesn't half describe it. I've been in the sales ' business a
longtime, but really and truly I've never seen such a crowd, such a
thrifty bunch of bargain-seekers. They just simply pushed and
shoved, pulled and hauled. They carried it away in armloads. I act
ually saw a man going up the back alley with a wheelbarrow, full, and
the best part of it all was that everyone I talked to as they were leav
ing the sale said: "I am coming back tomorrow." If you were among
the unfortunate ones who for some reason could not attend the sale
the first few days, for pity's sake get down there Saturday. I am
banking on you and will be disappointed if you are not there.

merchandising? And the beauty of it is, it will get better as it goea
We're going to turn a whole flock loose in front of the store Saturday
morning at nine o'clock. The catcher is the keeper. Really, you can't
explain it very well in writing, but I'll guarantee you never saw any
thing like this' for a fun-maker; and besides, you may get a fine fat
turkey for Sunday dinner.
