During the past couple of days, we were busy with selling several area rugs, couple of Indian and Afghan rugs, and three pieces of Persian Nain,Gbbeh and Sarouk rugs. Few customers almost killed us by bargaining a lot. On the other hand, we had few customers who did not care about the price and just selected the pieces they liked. We also delivered several pieces of rugs which were left with us for cleaning and repair. Some of our customers, I should say many of them do not like to have fringes on their rugs as they get stocked in the vacuum cleaners. In cases like this, we cut the fringes short and secure them so the knots do not come off. We always tell our customers to be gentle to the fringes and selvages of the rugs. Four sides of the rugs need special attention and we should not use the beater bar of the vacuum cleaner on these sides. We should only use the suction.
We had rug sales up to 30% off because of Valentine's Day with a big sign in front of our store on La Cienega Blvd. This created walk-in traffic and because of this, we sold many pieces of rugs in the past three days.
