Rug Shopping, Part 1b

My father read this morning's blog post and supplied a little extra information about rug buying...
In the bazaar that transaction might take three or four days, innumerable cups of tea, inquiries into every member of each person's family, at least four instances of walking out with the merchant pleading that he does not want to lose a friend (or a sale). It is an event of the highest drama and comedy, which if not done well is an insult to the merchant.
It kind of sounds fun...but I think clicking through all the options online is a bit more efficient!

  2. I would love to watch your father in action! It seems there is a real art to the negotiation.
