We live in a condo apartment building and most apartment buildings require that 80% of the floors must be covered. We have area rugs and over the years I have gone through many different kinds of area rugs, all bought online. I made a huge mistake several years ago and bought a rug for the bedroom that was a nightmare. I recently got rid of it. Another nightmare, don’t ask.
Pretty soon the maintenance people will be coming around to change the filters in the HVAC units and inspect for leaks and, oh yeah, check to see that floors are covered. So…bedroom is rug free but there isn’t that much bare floor space – just around the bed. My brilliant idea was to buy runners – 3 of them to go around the bed (the head of the bed is pushed against a wall.
My go to for rugs is esalerugs.com. Lots of choices, fabulous prices, no shipping charges and because they are just 2 states away I usually get my rugs in 2 days.
So – here is the stupid. I ordered the runners on Friday, 9/24 and they shipped the same day via FedEx. I received them today, Friday, Oct 1st. The rugs shipped out of South Carolina coming to me here in Arlington VA –

The rugs went from Fort Mill. SC to Texas; from Texas to Tennessee; from Tennessee to Maryland and finally Maryland to Virginia.
