Good Question: Is the Craigslist Rug Worth It?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,
I went to view the rug in the craigslist posting and I love it, but it is old and needs a few repairs and needs to be cleaned. Do you think this rug is worth $250? If not, what should I ask for?
I just want to make sure I’m not getting ripped off before I buy it.

Personally we’ve spent $80 or more getting rugs drycleaned and had wonderful results. A rug this size new could cost you upwards of $1,000. We say if it can handle a cleaning it’s worth it. Of course, it is always worth it to barter since it is Craigslist.

Priscilla needs some answers today otherwise it might be too late for her craigslist find. What do you think ATers?
