    ...I have no idea about investing in carpets, but I became obsessed with them during my time in Isfahan...I managed to acquire 15 or so along with a number of kilims...I still feel the pull of fascination when I see one gracing a floor...

    They were long dead before I was born It’s fortunate that despite being rare or endangered some kindly Victorian lovingly preserved them i. A mahogany and glass box

    Manatee will look good in there with them when she passes :-(

    YD, I typically start at the mall Bangkapi and exit the canal here:



    to enter RAM.

    PM me a time and place and I'll be there (Wed. or Thurs.)
    (flying out Sat.

    If it's after 9am or 11am, I could even be showered.
