Wise Beauty Culturist Writes:

Kill two birds with one stone.


I think the idea of THE BRONZEMAN Economy Sewing Contest is grand. Many of our customers are entering the contest, and we (the owner and operators) are sending a lady to represent our shoppe on that eventful night at Bacon's Casino. We are going to model one of our own creations in a new hair-dress. Expect our model with a hair-dress that's different and a daintily made dress. WISHING YOU MUCH SUCCESS.

Carrington's Beauty Shoppe,
