Happy Monday! It’s been a slow blog week for me, so I’m trying to get back in action since I have today off. I wanted to share the details on the Turkish rug I ordered from Etsy last week, since I’ve gotten a few messages on Instagram and promised to reveal all of the details on here.
I’ve talked on here before about how much I love Turkish rugs, and a few months ago, I snagged one from a neighbor who runs a little flea market in his yard each weekend morning (seriously the best idea). I have it in the hallway outside my bedroom and considered putting it where the one I ordered is sitting now, but the colors were a little dark for me. I really wanted to get something with a feminine, muted look, for my bedroom (I’ve been mixing my decor up a bit!) and I came across my ideal piece after hours (I mean hours…) of browsing Etsy.
I knew I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on a small piece (mine is about 3 by 6) but I definitely got an amazing deal for the size. Turkish rugs can be super pricy, so that’s why I wanted to look on Etsy as opposed to a site like Lulu and Georgia or even a seller on Instagram, as I wasn’t willing to drop hundreds!
I’m usually super impatient and order the first thing I see/like (great quality, I know…), but decided to be super thorough when shopping for a rug because of the one-of-a-kind nature of each item and the fact that I couldn’t exactly return my purchase (it shipped directly from Turkey!). I seriously scrolled through pages and pages of Etsy listings and couldn’t make up my mind, so I decided to narrow it down a bit. I found a seller who offered free shipping and had gotten great reviews and focused on all of his listings before deciding to grab this piece (also pictured above). It arrived in three days from Turkey (I placed the order on a Sunday and the rug came on Wednesday), which was super fast! Everything was in wonderful condition and looked just like the picture, and the seller even threw in a small pillow cover.
I’ll hopefully post some real pictures of the rug soon, but in the meantime, I’d highly recommend ordering from this shop if you’re in the market for something similar!
