I discovered by reading someone’s blog (wish I could remember whose) that World Market is having a rug sale. My dining room needs a rug.
I hopped right on their site to see if anything caught my eye and three items did. First the Kari Inspired Jute area rug — looks like old denim. I wanted to see it in person and it’s out of stock online. I called the store to see if they had any in stock but, unfortunately, I had written down the names of the rugs and the store personnel needed a skew number.
I decided to take my chance and drive 40 minutes to our nearest World Market to see it and maybe buy it.
Not exactly what I had in mind and it didn’t really go with my fabrics and it was too small for the dining room. But for anyone interested they did have a few in stock.
The next rug came in 2 different colors and in a 9 by 12 size which it the size I need.
While I could see smaller versions of the rug at the store it really helped me decide the color.
Not the same in person.
The price was good and there would be free shipping except World Market was charging a $25 overweight fee. Wahhh?
Maybe I don’t want it that much.
Finally I really like the light blue stained glass rug. Even on sale it’s fairly expensive and has the same upcharge as the hemp rugs.
Unfortunately WM didn’t have any size of The Stained Glass rug in the store so I thought it was a bit risky especially when I read a review that said it’s much lighter than the photo on the web. Then I saw this post by Steph at You Paid More Than Me where she compared the Preston rug to the Stained Glass Rug.
So I just walked away.
Do you get frustrated with surcharges and upcharges and fees and . . .?
