6-' When Buying Bedding and Household Linen'
A discussion on everyday shopping points for ordinary people between
Margot Smith (for the housewife) and R. B. Driver (household linen buyer for an important London Store)
A departmental buyer of one of the great London stores, with experience that has given him a detailed knowledge of the demand from different parts of the country, is to join Margot Smith in the shopping discussion this evening. R. B. Driver will answer a wide range of questions of practical interest to the housewife who is beginning to furnish or replenishing her stocks. He will deal with ordinary methods of judging quality and value in sheets and blankets, the best width and length for single and double beds, what to look for in buying towels and kitchen linen, and how to judge the filling of quilts and mattresses. In the course of the discussion he will be asked whether some of the most spectacular claims of advertisements and sales are reliable. His general advice will be ' Go to the trader you can trust, and don't expect impossible bargains for your money '.
