Here is some of the best Property in or near Fayetteville that will be sold at the Price you want to Pay for it. We have arranged Terms which are the Easiest Ever heard of... Tell Your Friends to Be Sure and Meet You At the Sale!!" The "Old Silk Mill" is the Ashley & Bailey Company silk mill, which formerly stood on Robeson Street south of downtown Fayetteville. Undated, but almost certainly from the second half of the 1940s, according to other contemporary advertisements by the listed auction company and auctioneer.
