Are you interested in purchasing a vintage oriental rug?
Please stop by the shop or contact me, Tad Runge, by phone or text at 207-831-8567 or email [email protected].
Share with me the approximate size(s) you need.
Do you have a style that you prefer?
What colors work best for you?
Due to inventory turnover, the sample images on the home page give you a hint of the styles of rugs I sell. Current stock is always changing. Hopefully, variations of these rugs will be in my current inventory.
I can provide digital photos of any of my rugs/carpets that might meet your needs. I can also FaceTime a rug with you.
If a rug or rugs interest you, you can take them home with you on approval. I can also deliver it/them or ship it/them to you on approval by UPS. If I don’t have that special rug you seek in my inventory I’d be happy to initiate a search for you.
Please call or text me at 207-831-8567 or email me [email protected] about the possibility of selling or the consignment of your rug(s). I will be happy to discuss the pros and cons of either approach. I always need fresh, attractive old rugs in almost any condition.
So before you throw out that “worn old rug or not so worn out rug," bring it to the shop (Hours.) Better yet call or text me at 207-831-8567 or email me [email protected] first as it/they may have some value.
When you e-mail or text me about your rug or rugs, introduce me to it/them by including a digital photo of each. No need to take a picture of the entire rug, just as much as you can capture.
We Don’t Just Clean Your Rugs We Wash Them. Runge Oriental Rugs, in affiliation with Rite Way Cleaning of Waldoboro, Maine, expertly and correctly wash your oriental, hooked, braided, and machine loomed wool area rugs and carpets.
Rite Way takes pride in the way they clean rugs - they wash them.
First they remove the embedded dirt by thoroughly “dusting” your rug with state of the art equipment.
Next they wash it, as many times as necessary, using gentle detergents.
To assure no detergent residue, your rug is then rinsed as many times as needed and then centrifuged and air dried.
Rite Way is the only rug cleaning business in Maine and, we believe in Northern New England, that offers rug washing to the public.
Rite-Way does not shampoo your rugs.
Check our link with Rite Way and feel free to contact them for details.
$2.75 per square foot to wash most rugs.
