Finally.  Rain.

Three rainy days this past week brought an end to 6 months without measureable rain in our valley and the snow in the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the east is being measured in feet not inches!  Snow is a significant source of water for farms and cities throughout California.  You probably think of beaches, movie stars, and the tech industry when you think of California; be sure to think of farming and ranching too, after all, California is the number one agricultural producer in the country.

We recently acquired some outstanding rugs; they’re being cleaned and prepared for your consideration.   Watch for them in the coming months.

Featured Rugs

The featured rugs this month are two very nice Contemporary rugs.
