    BUYING LOCAL:

    I gave a presentation last week on the history of Christmas celebrations in Golden. In reading through 60 years of Golden Transcripts, I was struck by how long we've been reminding people to "Buy Local." Check these...my favorite one was the 1921 message!

    1873 - Don't go away for Christmas goods. Taft has a store full of toys at the lowest figures.

    1897 - Don't go to Denver to buy Chirstmas presents. Our home merchants for the various lines are displaying splendid stocks, and prices are as low as in the city. Save your railroad fare.

    1898 - ...if so many of our people did not go to Denver for their presents, it would be much better. Of course the stores there carry larger stocks, but the goods are no cheaper, and our people ought to consider the fact that our merchants are tax-payers among us and deserve our trade. Think of this, ladies and gentlemen, and deal with them as you would be delt by.

    1899 - When about to buy Christmas presents, remember the value of a home-spent dollar. Our merchants have well selected stocks, and prices compare very favorably with anything Denver has to offer.

    1906 - Don't go away from home to buy Christmas presents. Golden merchants have good stocks to select from, and prices are so low that you can't afford to pay car fare to the city, anyhow.

    1923 - Read the Christmas ads in the Golden papers and try the Golden stores first when you do your Christmas shopping. You will get better value at home, you'll save a lot of time and confusion, and you'll make for greater prosperity of your home town.

    My favorite:

    1921 - Golden merchants have an excellent line of Christmas goods and there is no use in journeying to Denver to buy your Christmas goods. Besides, look at the danger of getting murdered, held up, run over or contracting small pox. Buy at home, help your home town and be safe.
