We wanted to go over some of the things we blogged about this week and also a few things we found that didn't quite deserve a full blog post, but still deserve mention. If you haven't check out our RugRabbit post, it's a great resource if you are looking to buy or sell rugs of all sorts online.
Emmett Eiland's Oriental Rug Company is having a huge sale with loads of great prices and they are even raffling off a pakistani Heriz with no purchase necessary. Anyone in the Berkeley, California area should stop through the end of September.
Rug Rag also provided some history on The Red Carpet and how it came to be used for entertainment events. It really has a long and rich history, which to be honest, we had no idea about. See, everyone learns a little something over here!
On the note of things that didn't quite deserve a full post, we came across an Ethiopian Review site that had an article about a Jacksonville, Florida Home Depot store which received an odd call. A woman called the store asking about how to remove a giant blood stain from the carpet. The worker didn't know how to respond, especially when the woman wouldn't reveal her name, so the worker called the local police. Instead of having the police called on her, she could have just checked out our Stain Removal Guide. Who knows if it was real or not, but people do strange things huh?
Heading over to the Rug Rag Forum, we had a guest who had an interesting way of identifying her rugs. Our forum user had names for each of her rugs, which we thought was a little silly at first, but then realized it made perfect sense. With all of the different designs and styles out there, it makes sense for someone new to oriental rugs to have their own scheme, especially not knowing much about the designs (Robofern is pretty accurate). We hope Pigpen and Huey Kabluey are doing well in your home! Anyone else out there name their rugs?
We hope everyone has a good weekend and got a chance to catch up on this weeks rug news.
