Get IT on eBay

I've been looking around for a rug for my living room - one that is more traditional with a pink hue. The other day, my friend suggested that I check out eBay.

Holy - moly... there are rugs galore for under $200! If you are just looking for a nice accent and can forgo on the tactile purchasing experience, you should check out eBay!

I pulled the trigger and got this one for $120 (including shipping). It's a 5x7 Turkisk rug that's hand made, double knotted (120 knots per square inch ... not bad) and has a pink hue (that'll compliment my Rothko quite nicely)! Once it arrives, I'll take some pics!

OMG I think I looked at the SAME rug! I've been searching for "old oriental rug," and "vintage oriental rug" with fantastic results. The prices are amazing!
