North Dallas’ Premiere Emporium of Fine Handmade Rugs Schedules Seminar Brunch on How to Spot a Fake

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Dallas, TX- September 14, 2019: Have you ever noticed a rug store that has curiously been “going out of business” for five years? Have you ever been invited to an auction of luxury goods held in  a hotel instead of an auction house? These are but two possible clues that someone could be perpetrating a fraud. To ensure that anyone who is interested in purchasing a fine, handmade rug does not find themselves wondering how they paid $20,000 for a piece worth $2,000, Behnam Rugs is devoting its next seminar/brunch, “Rug Value or Rug Fraud?” specifically to this subject.

The upcoming seminar will be on October 19th from 11 AM to 1 PM at their Preston Road showroom and is free to the public. The talk will be led by Behnam Rugs owner Ben Tavakolian,
who brings a lifetime of study and professional experience to the role
of educator and de-facto consumer advocate. “The particular seminar
affords me the chance to give something back to the community in
several ways,” he explained. “It connects people with a shared interest
in fine rugs but also shines a light on a type of consumer fraud that is
perpetrated regularly on a local level. Now consumers will have the
tools to be their own superheroes,” he added with a laugh.

In addition to the opportunity to learn
about the history, care and acquisition of fine rugs in an elegant,
relaxed setting, guests will can bring in their own rugs and receive a
free written appraisal from the Behnam team of experts. The showroom is located at 18000 Preston Road, Dallas, TX 75252. Dogs are welcome.
