Welcome back after Summer Vacation!

Posted & filed under News & Press.

We have a lot to tell you regarding our business. As of Tuesday September 14, 2010, we are launching our first ever sale in our West Vancouver store where we will feature the following:

– Close out carpets, floor samples and overstock items at up to 50 per cent off regular price.

These high end rugs are all hand spun and vegetable dyed and the sale hours for this event are:

Tuesday – Saturday 11am – 4pm, or by appointment by calling Ara directly at 604 619 2588.

If any of your rugs need servicing, we will continue to offer cleaning and repairs during this event. These services will be carried out at our location in North Vancouver at Tolliday Carpet Services 604 986 – 1165. Free pick ups and deliveries are available, please call for more information.

We also just got back from our buying trip and we purchased beautiful handmade rugs from Zollanvari, Michaelian and Kohlberg, and Woven Legends. They have already arrived and are in stock in our Granville location. We will be posting pictures next week to give you a sense of what they are. We have also added one more famous outfit and we will reveal the name as we receive the stock. We have also purchased several antique rare pieces and we will make them available in our blog page next week.

This year we will also be taking part in two shows. One is an antique show held at Oakridge Centre and the other is the interior design show held at the Vancouver convention centre. We will give you more details on these events next week as well. We also have a limited number of free tickets that we will be happy to give you so call us today!

We wish you a pleasant fall season and look forward to seeing you soon.
