My wife has made supporting the area rug industry her life’s mission…. I think. The conversation usually begins something like this” you aren’t gonna believe the great deal I got”( insert most any item here ie: area rugs, Christmas trees, patio furniture , etc) . I figure cycling the area rugs to the garage for a while before going straight to the dumpster beats crawling around on the concrete, the next set are gonna be really nice, they are white. I find it best to just go along.
