Shopping hasn't really changed that much if you read old advertisements! This one is from the Caddo Herald, January, 1911.
Huffman Dry Goods
Nineteen hundred ten has been a satisfactory year with us. Our business has been good, for which we thank the people of Caddo and vicinity. In closing the year’s business we find a number of desirable articles in Dry Goods, Shoes, Clothing, and Notions, which we do not desire to carry over another season, therefore, to close them out at once, we are making substantial reduction on all items of winter use.
(I’ve only listed a few of the items from the ad.)
