A guide to your buying hours, showing you how to buy intelligently, whether you live in a city or a village. The chapters fall into headings such as Fashion, Accessories, Furniture, China, Silver, Glassware, etc. There is an excellent chapter on interior decoration, and another that is exceptionally good on travel. A consumers' guide done with humor and an intimate touch. Not a debunking book, but a book which sets up individual measuring rods and standards. The title lends a rather cheap note to material which is anything but. Kay Austin knows whereof she speaks.
