The one I let get away was one week before I got married, I found a perfect condition Shirvan Lesghi, 19th century. The kind you only see in high-end dealers for four figures. It was priced at 10% of retail in an out of the way antique shop.
I am still married, but, dang, that was a nice rug.....
My advice to a novice collector of limited means is to NOT tell a rug dealer that you are a novice collector of limited means :-)
