Short Story Long:
So, I bet you can guess why this rug hasn't sold in our store yet. It's pink and purple. Yup. But, even though my husband won't let me decorate our house in pink in purple (a dream from my childhood that I have yet to realize), perhaps you have a color blind significant other who won't mind. Okay, realistically I can't see a rug like this in a formal living room, but I think it could breath life into a drab laundry room, add cheer to a cloudy sunroom, or brighten up a little girl's nursery.
This rug is about my age, but it is in far better shape than me. There are two small (less than 1") areas of binding that are missing, but this is just a cosmetic issue, not a structural one. The back of the rug has a small stain, but it's on the back so who is going to see it? The rug has been priced to compensate for these issues. Um, did I mention that it is pink and purple? You need this!

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or good jokes, please feel free to contact me! I'm a rug expert in training with access to plenty of rug gurus, so if you have any rug related questions at all, please feel free to hit me up for info.
