Selling your Oriental Rug on Consignment in the Bay Area or Sonoma County.

I am currently open to consignment sales of good quality hand woven Oriental rugs or runners, preferabley tribal in nature. Antique or new, but must be in good condition and clean. Persian tribal rugs are my first choice, but will consider any rug, if it has the magic! Small to large, OK.

Intersting and unusal pieces woven with vegetable dyes and hand spun wool or small silk rugs seem to find buyers easily in my gallery. If I don't think I can sell it, I will not waste your time. If you need to get the rug washed first we do handle washing rugs at my gallery so give a call. 

My shop is in Sebastopol, CA, so any consignment sales would work best if you are at least in the San Franscisco Bay Area.

If you have a rug or carpet (larger rug) you are interested in selling, send photos by email with size, age, any known info such as provenence to my email address, with your contact info:

If you are more interested in selling the rug yourself, this article will give you some tips.

Have a perfect Day!
