Oriental, Persian, Area Rugs Carpets and Kilims for Sale in Los Angeles

During the past few days, many people have stopped by with rugs in the trunk of their cars for sale. These rugs have included Persian American Sarouk rugs, Hand knotted Persian Tabriz rugs, Turkish kilims, Isfahan rugs, Silk Qum rugs, Indian rugs and many more.

I always tell them this is not the right way of selling a rug and rug dealers should not be your first choice in this journey. Before your start selling your rug, try to know your rug and if you're not sure about the details of your Oriental carpet or area rug try to get an appraisal. If you do not exactly know what you have, how could you sell it? After you get some information on your rug, try to find an end user and a private customer. Selling on the Internet maybe a better option than putting the rug in the trunk of your car and driving around the town to find a potential customer, a dealer who has tens of unsold rugs himself!!

I will write more on this in the near future.

People do like to go to the dealers first... I think many are running into some of these items from local summer estate sales or sometimes even tag sales.

Get ready in January: that's when they purchase overseas then bring the rug back to the states!
