For more than a quarter of a century, Herman Leffler has sold cotton and nylon blend fabrics a stone's throw from Macy's huge department store on Herald Square in Manhattan, shipping his wares from tiny Show Boat Fabrics to textile manufacturers throughout the nation.

The sale came just weeks before the lighting of the famous Christmas tree that overlooks the center's skating rink and the opening of the Radio City Music Hall Christmas show with its high-kicking Rockettes. "Money talks very loudly," said New Yorker Sumner Baye.
