RUG ROW

Woman proudly shows off her new cut-price rug… but all anyone cares about is how much it cost in the first place

SHE thought she'd got a bargain, so took to Facebook to boast about it.

But Pauline Richardson probably wasn't expecting the amount of people who took issue with the original price of her "best bargain everrrr".

"I'm a big leopard print fan and today I fell in love with the rug but as it was displayed high up i could only make out the £1195.00," Pauline wrote alongside a picture of the eye-catching Tibetan rug on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook.

"Can you imagine how fast I said yes, I'm buying this when I saw the other tag of £119.50....over £1000 pounds off."

She grabbed the "bargain" from Frith Rugs in Warrington.

Pauline also shared a picture of the tag, which gave further details about the rug, such as that it measures 6ft by 4ft and is made of 100% wool pile.

"Who the hell is paying a grand and a half for a doormat?" one wrote.

"More money than sense."

"Great saving but you do have to wonder who on earth would pay £1200 for a rug in the first place!" another added.

"I'd want at least 2 rooms carpeting for that!"

"Even if it was sentient, could fly and was made of actual leopards there's no way I'd pay that much for a rug," a third commented.

As someone else wrote: "That is an amazing bargain..... if you can afford the £119.50 I can't even afford £19.50.

"My doormat was from the pound shop!"

But others insisted the rug was worth the price, with one explaining: "That rug will last you a lifetime, anyone who's saying they wouldn't spend £110 on a rug probably already has by buying multiple cheaply made rugs."

"The work that goes into those rugs is incredible, the workmanship alone is worth £1195," another added.

"Each tiny piece of wool is carefully tied individually, it takes hours upon hours to create that.

"What a bargain you found, and wonderful it’s a pattern you love."
