Yesterday I bought a hand woven Afghan rug from a French woman who is moving back to France with her family. It was obvious she was very attached to it. She said that if the airlines let people bring more bags she'd take it with her. It's an interesting rug Because it's handwoven, the edges aren't completely straight, but it has a lot of character. I put it in my kitchen. It looked very nice there and I was pleased with my find.
It's sort of a shame, though - I was already starting to get rather attached to it myself.
