Spelling matters

An ad in the local free distribution newspaper offered a “Black Rot Iron Fireplace” for sale. The ad ran one week.  There was no interest.

The ad ran a second week. Still no interest.

The ad was changed to “Black Wrought Iron Fireplace.”

The fireplace sold the same day.

Spelling matters.
