The Three Stooges become the unlikely owners of a modiste's shop in this amusing short. The boys have inherited Madame de France from their Uncle Pete. Before that they were woodworkers whose last assignment was to duplicate a small but very valuable Chinese cabinet. The ill-fated cabinet lasts about two minutes before being decimated in the Stooges' hands. They are forced to flee from the man who brought it in (the imposing Vernon Dent). At Madame de France the Stooges make themselves at home, even if the haughty patrons are a bit perplexed by them. Then comes the morning when Mrs. Morgan-Morgan calls and requests a fashion display for her and her friends. Little do the Stooges know that Mr. Morgan-Morgan is the man with the Chinese cabinet. The fashion show starts off as a success, even Larry's fashions -- he seems to have gotten "dress" and "dresser" mixed up; as a result his outfits sport drawers. While the Stooges are creating a new "mode" for Mrs. Morgan-Morgan, her husband shows up and begins slugging away at the Stooges. Their escape from him results in a big food fight in the showroom. The matrons all wind up covered in whip cream and custard and finally three of them knock the Stooges unconscious.
