There is nothing more beautiful than a well made antique Persian rug. The hand-spun yarns glow with the vibrant colors of the old vegetable dyes. The fascinating patterns passed down in families from centuries past could be studied for a lifetime. The rugs themselves are treasures to be handed down to become a part of another generation. Their usefulness is not limited, they go with every lifestyle. That's why I love them and that's why I sell them.

In Duluth, Minnesota, at Father Time Antiques in Canal Park, I have a large booth, full of Persian rugs of every type, every color, in most sizes. They are all hand-knotted, semi-antique (1920 to 1950) and the prices range from $145 to $1.200, with most in the $300 to $500 range.

I do not ship, you have to see them and pick them up during shop hours, 11 to 5:30, 7 days a week.

here are a few examples of rugs I have at the moment that I would like to share with you.
