23 The Rushden Echo and Argus, 29th May 1931, transcribed by Gill Hollis

Rushden Furniture Exhibition — The Windmill Hall at Rushden has been engaged for a large and novel exhibition by Messrs. Jay’s Furnishing Stores, of Gold-street, Northampton. It is the intention of this well-known firm to exhibit from June 1st to 13th a complete range of modern furnishings, suitable for all classes of purchasers, and to give free admission of the ideal home.

The advert
A representative of Messrs. Jay’s stated yesterday that the firm is very pleased with the scope provided at the large Rushden hall, and intends that the exhibition shall eclipse in every way a similar event at Wellingborough last year. “Our object,” he said, “is to show up-to-date furnishings – all modern goods – in a nice setting. There will be about twelve model rooms, complete with carpets, curtains, and every class of fitting. They will present valuable ideas to those who are furnishing or
re-furnishing, and the goods displayed will include drawing-room and bedroom suites, sideboards, tables, bookcases and in fact, everything for the home. We want the people of Rushden to look round at their leisure and make a thorough inspection of anything that interests them. Members of our staff will be at hand to give full information, particularly with regard to the arrangements by which purchases can be made. They can show how easy it is to furnish on modern terms.”

Jay’s are paying rail and bus fares on all orders of £20 or over, and will present a souvenir case of stainless cutlery to every customer placing an order of £10 or more. The goods are delivered free to any address.
