Thinking About Purchasing An Oriental Rug? Protect Yourself From Unscrupulous Dealers.

Don’t be fooled by huge markdowns or deep discounts like ”50%”, ”60%“ or even ”90%“ off. Sellers feature high mark-ups to accommodate this kind of discounting at:

◦Fake Custom Auctions

◦Going Out of Business (GOB) Sales

◦Moving Sales

◦Liquidation Sales

◦Lost Lease Sales

◦Closing Forever Sales

◦Bankruptcy Sales

◦Remodeling Sales

  • Stay away from fake Customs Auctions of seized-rugs advertised in your local newspapers. At these auctions, you bid on rugs supposedly seized by U.S. Customs. These auctions are ALL FRAUDULENT for the simple reason that goods that are seized by Customs must be shipped out of the country; they are not allowed to be sold in the U.S. (That is why they have been seized by Customs!)
  • Beware of seasonal Liquidation SALES from your local rug dealers, especially if you see their sign more than a month in your local newspaper or in their store window!
  • If you are buying from online auctions, do your homework before bidding on any carpet from anyone. Be wise and check their ranking!
  • If it is too good to be true, it probably is

Do your homework!

  • Do not fool yourself. If someone is offering a 50-year-old Tabriz rug with 600 (KPSI) for $100, be cautious!
