Oriental Rugs and Gardens Have Much in Common

To some the home in the distance might seem afar off. In truth, the verdant beauty of the world proclaims that "home" is all around wherever we might be.

The concepts of gardens and oriental rugs have much in common (as a little research will reveal to the curious.) 

For those embattled by the sterile cold of winter, the memory of a garden, or its symbolic presence in a traditional oriental rug, is the hope of a time and place that will come again.

Some feel it is home; some call it home. Some know it as paradise. We all know what it is. We all know what it feels like. If we are not there, we look forward to being there again. We all know when we are there.

Rug Sale Reality at Bucks County, PA Oriental Rug Store Brandon Oriental Rugs. Value is REAL not Made-Up. | PHOTO EVIDENCE |

You do NOT have to wait for a "SALE" to get the best price on the best quality area rugsJust call or visit Bucks County, PA rug specialty store Brandon Oriental Rugs anytime for the best of everything (including service.)
Rug Sale Reality: Example 1

"Rug Sale" Reality featuring evidence from a popular rug "sale" host.

Rug Sale Reality: Example 2

(used for comparison below)


The "sale season" is always a GREAT time to consider what is REAL. 
If quality is important in your purchase decisions, you are going to want REAL oriental rugs. Likewise, you deserve honest offers with real prices on the rugs you'll be considering (not some phony markup price to offer you an equally phony discount.) Afterall, if the price on the tag isn't true (and was never meant to be true) what else can you really trust about the rug you want to buy, or the company trying to sell it to you? 

Your buying strategy need not be holding out for "70% OFF" when the next SALE rolls around. Instead, discover and learn about what quality or style of rug you like. Then pursue finding the best value (in reality) that is being offered to you for that kind of rug. This goes for antique and one-of-a-kind rugs too. Though their uniqueness places them in a class that brings intangibles to their pricing, you can with a little research find information on comparable examples, and establish a sense of price to make you comfortable about the value of the specific rug you are considering.

For over twenty-five years at their one and only location, Brandon Oriental Rugs has consistently offered the best values available based on QUALITY. Plus, Brandon's pricing beats the super discounted "SALE" prices offered by other sources. Not once in all that time has the company ever resorted to phony discount price offers to lure shoppers.

If you have a hand-knotted rug in good condition that you want to offer for consignment sale, please contact us. We do not accept in-store consignments, but do maintain a data base of used/old rugs to help customers who are trying to sell their rugs.

A Few Pictures and Words Tell What Matters When Shopping for Quality Area Rugs

Think about the significance of what you are hearing about the benefits of each feature.

There's a First Step to Every Process (Including Decorating Your Home). Begin With the End In Mind.

Empty rooms are full of possibilities. Creativity motivates us to fill the void. At least in places where company will be invited to join us, that which is bare asks for cover. 

Just as we know to adorn ourselves, our tastes and appreciation of style naturally guide our choices for the furnishing of the spaces we inhabit. Collective cultural wisdom likewise sets sensible guidelines for decisions: "Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy, but not expressed in fancy; rich not gaudy..." 

With self-definition a comfortable habit, setting goals for expansive self-expression needed to decorate a home is easy. Collective wisdom helps us embark: "Begin with the end in mind."

The blueprints for our vision, whether formally drawn or held intuitively within, guide our steps. We know to build from the ground up. We know that an anchor prevents drifting. We know that a common precursor permits harmonization in subsequent specialization.

With that knowledge, selection of an oriental rug to put flesh on the bare bones of an empty room is an acknowledged stroke of genius. There is REALLY no better place to start.

An Elegant and Luxurious Lifestyle Can Be Proclaimed On the Outside, But Is Truly Lived On the Inside.

"Character cannot be judged solely

How to Help Customers Effectively. There are many answers. Some take humanity into account.

The advice below was found while browsing a Linked-In network discussion on "How to Help Customers Effectively":

"...great strategy to ensure your message resonates with your target audience. To expand on that, it's super important to know who your buyer personas (target audience) are, and where they reside online--and offline--in order to effectively reach, communicate and engage with them to drive a call to action. Do you have a marketing communications plan in place? It's also critical to have definitive and measurable marketing goals and objectives--and part of that circles back up to knowing who and where your buyers are...and through which channels you will reach them."

It sounds like a lot of dehumanizing gibberish with "relationships" based upon success in behavioral conditioning of "target audiences" to properly respond to buzzword calls to action -- to adopt the parlance..

One of my heroes in the Bible is Nathaniel, said by the Lord to be an Israelite "in whom there is no guile." "NO GUILE": that's the best character trait for building honest relationships and truly having a heart to help customers. I doubt any human being could pass "The Turing Test" by actively engaging in trying to evaluate "buyer personas...and where they order a call to action...and through which channels you will reach them."

The next person through the doors of my store (just like all of those before and all of those yet to come) will get a "Howdy. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to look around as much as you like. If you have questions, or need help 
with anything, I'm here to help in every way I can." 

God forbid I should ever become a creature or machine who spends a moment trying to assess the "buyer persona" of the people I meet.

Old Farmhouse Newly Renovated Has Its Character Preserved by Homeowners with Selection of Antique Reproduction Persian Rug from Bucks County, PA Rug Store Brandon Oriental Rugs

On their first day in the newly renovated living-room of their centuries old Bucks County, PA farmhouse, the homeowners selected this handmade, antique reproduction Persian Bakhshaish oriental rug from Brandon Oriental Rugs to grace the floors for all the days ahead in their wonderful new home.

New Oriental Rug from Bucks County, PA rug store Brandon Oriental Rugs is One of the First Steps in a Home Makeover by the Homeowners

Hand-knotted oriental rug selected by the homeowners from Brandon Oriental Rugs makes things look
pretty good already; but became just the first of many steps in a major home makeover.

Homeowners from Bucks County, referred to us by an interior designer, have advanced from the early stages of refurnishing their living room. Their old sofa seen above has since been removed. 

The handmade oriental rug they selected from Bucks County, PA rug store Brandon Oriental Rugs as one of the first steps in the room makeover enabled them subsequently to make decisions at a relaxed pace to advance their plans. The room was made comfortable, intimate and beautiful by their decision to introduce the traditional rug. Had they done no more, they could have been proud of their room as seen above.

But the rug inspired them with new ideas to update the living room: their main living space and site of so much that is important in the life of their family.

The images below show how things have rapidly advanced with the home's interior design. A new sofa, and some additional handmade rugs from Brandon have brought a fresh elegance to the expanded living room and adjacent spaces.
