Are You a Rug Addict?

Do you love Oriental Rugs or Persian Rugs?  Have you lost control?  Join the club.  I recently went to a new wholesaler that did in fact have some scarce Persian rugs that I so needed.  Persian Gabbehs to be exact.  When I arrived his son ran out to the parking lot to assist me in locating the best spot, escorted me in and made me feel very welcome.  It was nice.  Upon entering the warehouse I clearly stated that I was only here for a look-see.  Well, it never happens quite like that.  You need it, you get it and somehow you make the money to pay it.  Suffice is to say when I left I had 18 new pieces in my vehicle and could not wait to get back to the shop to photograph all and get them all up on my web site.

The resources for good quality Persian tribal rugs are drying up like the Mojave Desert so when the call comes, I answer it.  Hopefully, this Persian Rug Embargo will not last forever.  My favorite of all the new rugs is above.
