Do your Christmas shopping Easy
It’s all done as easily as this… Stop at any slipper counter or department. Ask to see the new Daniel Green slippers for Christmas. You’ll be in for a style treat! And a color thrill!
This ad was written just before the US entered WWII, and while slippers made from cloth were not rationed in the States, I imagine that the pretty colors became a bit hard to obtain due to the scarcity of dyes. I’ve read that many wartime brides wore white satin slippers because they were the only new – and appropriate for a wedding – shoes to be had. I can picture a bride wearing the beautiful Militaire slipper at the top of the display.
I’ll be telling the fascinating story of another slipper company tomorrow. This was a story that has been right under my nose, and it was just brought to my attention. Some stories are worth the wait.
