It was a kind of holiday today since it was the President's Day. Post offices, schools, banks, and schools were closed today. Shops, businesses, and department stores were open and many of them has sales.
We had a busy day. In the morning, a repeat customer who had bought a Persian hand knotted fine Gabbeh few weeks ago came in and bought four 5 x 8 area rugs for his garden. Two ladies later came in looking for a gray or silver 5 x 8 rug. They finally fell in love with a modern design hand tufted rug with New Zealand wool. They paid with a debit card and left. Few other customers walked in separately and bought few other area rugs. Before we close our rug store at 6:30 pm, a young lady visited our rug gallery and stood in front of a very fine Persian Hand knotted Mashad Saber rug we have on the wall. This is a pair with silk foundation. Each piece has 9,000,000 knots and took four years to make. This lady is a designer and wants a rug like this for her client. She wanted to take a picture with her cell phone. I told her to give me her e-mail address so I could e-mail her few high resolution photos of this rug along with one page of text about this museum quality Persian carpet. She agreed and gave me her e-mail address and got our business card and left. I emailed three photos of the rug with a description page.
She is supposed to show the pictures to her client to see if she is interested in the rugs or not.
