f Towe Motpu Go
These cool evenings bring to mind
that the fall season is not far away,
and most of us realize that the fall
season is a great time of year for
furniture buying. With that thought
in mind we called on W. M. Morgan,
Hertford's Furniture Man, for a lit
tle information regarding the furni
ture market and the prices which
will probably be in effect during the
Thinking that many people, includ
ing those newly-weds who plan to
start house-keeping this fall, are in
terested in what furniture prices
may be during the coming season, we
are passing along the facts gained
from our little talk with Mr. Morgan,
who assured us that those people
who are planning on buying new fur
niture will find that prices will not
be much greater than during 1940.
In summing up the total advance
in prices on furniture, we learned
that the whole market has advanced
only from 10 to 15 per cent; and this
increase is due to the fact that the
greatest advances have been on the
cheaper items and those that are re
quired by the Government for the
National Defense program. Some ot
the better grade furniture items have
advanced only five per cent, but tak
en altogether the market has ranged
from five per cent up to a few items
that have advanced as much as twen
ty per cent, but these items are few.
Pointing out the advantages of
buying on the present market Mr.
Morgan stated that a person could
buy a good mattress or other good
items of furniture this fall practic
ally as cheap as they formerly couio
purchase some of the cheaper lines.
He further pointed out that per
sons, when they considered the rising
prices of cotton, hogs, peanuts and
other farm products and compared
these with the prices on furniture,
very little difference could be found
in the prices this season as compared
with last year.
Fortunately, we here in Hertford,
wall find very little shortage in our
furniture needs for we have a furni
ture dealer who has on hand a car
load of steel products, a carload of
mattresses, over 1,000 rugs of all de
scriptions, large and small, and car
load after carload of furniture itema
stored in his show rooms and ware
house. This large stock, probably larger
than that carried by any other fur-,
niture store in this section in a town
having the same population, is due
to Mr. Morgan's belief that "there
is no way of telling what prices may
do before our Government, whom we
all are supporting to the fullest, is
prepared to beat Hitler."
Some merchandise, Mr. Morgan re
ports, is hard to get but he believes
that his stock will be sufficient to
satisfy the needs of his friends and
customers during the coming fall
season; but he advises wise buying.
Those who purchase their actual
neeas win una tnat tney win save
money and will benefit by getting
their purchases before prices may be
driven higher by those who buy non
As a reminder to some, Mr. Mor
gan pointed 0t that no doubt many
of us could remember the high prices
of cotton, sugar and even Gold Seal
rugs of years ago. and he believe
wise buying might eliminate some of
In closing, he told us that all Fur
niture journal experts, those men
who are in position to know, say that
furniture prices were never lower
than during the period from 1939
and 1940, and thus prices today are
sun lower tnan in former years.
