1900 Christmas Shopping

The "Local and Otherwise" news in The Fowlerville Review was full of shopping information and advertisements. A sampling follows:

Holiday neckwear at Blackmer's.

Fine dress shoes at Blackmer's.

Mufflers of every description at Blackmer's.

Christmas books and fancy goods. A.R. Gardner

Highest price paid for turkeys and chickens. Miner & Luce

The windows in the various stores present a very attractive array of holiday goods this week, showing much taste and skill upon those who had the decorations in charge.

The merchants of this village seem to be enjoying a good holiday trade this year. They are certainly offering every inducement by way of low prices and fine goods.

Solid silver and plated spoons, knives and forks, and gold spectacles at A.R. Gardners.

To make your family love you and your home happy, use an aluminized steel range for cooking. Purchase it at Hugh Loughlins.
