I mentioned yesterday that I got some new rugs from Dash & Albert. And I will forgive you for assuming that I ordered them online or visited a distributor. I actually went to the outlet! It was quite a thrill, really. I found myself in Pittsfield, MA one day, with all sorts of time to kill and no small child with me to whine about boring shopping. Imagine that? As I sat there (in the Hancock Shaker Village parking lot, of all places) I had this epiphany about Dash & Albert. I had read about Annie Selke being awarded some "Business Woman of the Year" thingy for Massachusetts and remembered being like "Pittsfield?!?! Really?!?!"
And now, here I was. With Google no less.
6 miles and 2 turns along, and I had arrived:
It was hilarious. There was all this stuff. I mean, shams to beat the band. And rugs and rugs and rugs. On the left there are rugs up to 3' x 5' rolled up and on the floor were the stacks of larger sizes. That pile you see on the stack in the distance? That's the pile of crap I planned to buy. I did whittle it down and come to my senses a bit, but it was all so, so, so discounted. The rug I got for the den, this one on the site:
I mean, come on!
So, yeah, if you are in the Pitt, go there. I also got some jammies for $10. I love jammies.
