Friday, February 1st – Thursday, February 14th
During 38 years in business, we’ve gathered an amazing collection of odds and ends stuck away in trunks and in lofts and storage bins. It’s time for us to let it all go, and we would like to offer it to you first.
For instance, for years we have hung onto a number of very old rugs in poor condition that are wonderful study pieces or rugs for mounting on the wall. We’re offering them from $50 to $375 each. A couple of worn, room-sized carpets will sell for about $350.
Perhaps the most unusual article we will sell is our Camel. It was made for the 1938 World’s Fair in San Francisco, and it introduced the world to the new miracle-material, fiberglass! Though we love it, we no longer have room for it.
We will finally give up a large collection of Oriental rug fragments useful to repairers for patching rugs. Some of these fragments are really old and interesting!
We will also sell yarn and rug repair tools and supplies accumulated over the years. Attention professional rug repairers!
Among the pieces of furniture for sale is a group of Swat Valley chairs and a wonderful old wooden door surround.
Hali magazines. Old Southby’s auction catalogs. Old rug books. There are hundreds of items, all of them interesting.
