How about a compromise? Go to a carpet shop, buy an end piece of carpet, and
have them do the "ruggification" for you. Yes, I don't know the proper name
for sealing the ends up etc. ;-)
You might even know someone that has some carpet lying around.
I couldn't find a rug I liked so I went to a small local independent
carpet shop. He had loads of catalogues and I was able to order one
without any obligation to purchase if I didn't like it when it
arrived. I loved it so it was a perfect way of doing it!
Thanks for that - very interesting!
I hadn't thought of a Tinker being at a lower respect level than a
gypsy or pikey though. I'd have assumed that a Tinker was a gypsy who
practiced a mobile and legitimate trade, for example knife sharpening.
