I sold a very nice Ivory background Persian hand knotted Gebbeh to an English lady who just moved to Los Angeles. She walked in this morning and asked for a plain rug with no design and motif. She saw this Gabbeh which was made with hand spun wool with natural dye and liked it. We had 20% off on our Persian and Oriental rugs which was applied to this piece. She bought this Gabbeh and she she would come back for another rug in the near future. We also sold two area rugs. Because of the Valentine's day, we have 30% off on our area rugs. As usual, we did few carpet repair and stain removal for our customers and also two rug dealers.
A couple contacted me by e-mail from Berkeley, north California and sent me two photos of what they believe is a Sarouk runner. They want to sell it between $7,000 to $14,000! To me it looks like a commercial Hamedan runner. I asked them to bring it in. They may plan to come to Los Angeles.
