San Francisco Antique Rug Show

San Francisco Antique Rug & Textile show will be held for the 3rd year from October 20 to 23, 2011 in Motel Capri. I just returned from Rug Summit 4 in Ann Arbor Michigan and had no intention of visiting S. F. show this year. But I changed my mind last night and reserved a hotel to drive there from Los Angeles this coming Friday.

It is fun, and educational. Besides, you can see many good pieces from around the world as dealers who participate and exhibit will bring the best of their rugs there. It is not late yet to plan your trip. You don't have to buy anything (of course if you can resist). Just come and visit the show. Unlike any other exhibitions in halls, and hotels, this one is in Motel Capri in a kind of Oriental bazaar type of setting. This motel has 40 rooms and each exhibitor rents one room with one big bed in it. They open up their rugs on the beds, chairs and hang a few pieces on the walls. They also hang their best pieces from the rods in the balconies, and this creates a beautiful cottage and rural scene.
