Mom and Grandma came to town last Friday for lunch. They were on their way to Patagonia to see Dad, so they stopped for a brief visit.
I was looking at the rugs and found a beautiful one with no price tag.
The salesperson came over & was calling the owner when we both saw a tag of the floor. The price was $89, with the rug measurements, so we both though that was the correctvtag. It’s a 5×9 rug…which is a bargain price!
After we both found that tag, and he agreed to the price, we found yet another tag, same dimensions, but $329…
My mom keep saying…get the rug! get the rug! So I went over to the guy and told him I’d take it. He quickly rung up the sale (I hadn’t even finished looking around the store!)
I figured it would look lovely in the living room, but if Jon hated it, then it could go in my office at work. You can’t find a rug for $89 this size & colors. It does have a small bit of wear (it’s an estate sale find, after all!).
As the nice guy carted out to my car, he told me I got the “deal of a lifetime! The other tag was likely the correct price!”. But he was kind enough to stick to the first price.
It’s lovely! And only $89!!!
And the cats like it too! I just love the colors and it looks so pretty in the living room. It just makes me smile!
