Rapistan Review


Another boring start to the new week !



3 weeks till NYC !


Beginning of the Albuquerque / Santa Fe N.M. shows run with at least 5-6 shows and auctions spread out over the next 3 weeks .

Good luck to all the exhibitors , it’s a long haul !


Not much to blog about so far but one small piece of fresh news .

Freeman’s Auction , Phil. Pa. has a summer rug & carpet sale scheduled on Aug. 10th that features 141 lots of rugs , carpets and flat weaves . Unfortunately nothing of particular interest to serious collectors or decorators just a varied group of mid to low end common items.


Only one piece caught my eye , lot # 40 Yomut okbash fragment . Very poor online illustration . Reasonable pre- sale est. at $2-300.00 . Could be something but most likely nothing .

That’s about it , a very quiet week in rug dumb!


NYICS show update .

The show promoters have added a new web page with a partial listing of the antique rug dealers that will be exhibiting at at the show and you can view it through the link below .



Early morning road trip .

Another modest post but never fear changes are in the works for the fall !

Where you end up is not nessarily under your control ( unforeseen circumstances ) how you get there is , to a certain extent ! ,  Sheik Frederich ,2016.
