As she arrives she notices that the floor looks empty except for the one item she came to buy. While leaving the store she is asked by the floorwalker if she found what she was looking for. She pulls it out to show him and notices the thimble is scratched. She tells the floorwalker about her experience buying the thimble and he informs her there is no ninth floor. Confused, she turns and points to the saleslady, but she is only a mannequin. She is helped to the store office, and after a long sleep, wakes to find herself alone in the store. She frightenedly explores the building when she meets up with the saleslady again. She tells Marsha to think what is happening.

The floorwalker is shocked after seeing Marsha as a mannequin the next day...
