Rugs and Daylight Savings

I spent all last night looking at area rugs online. In the process, I fell in love with a particular line of rugs that are like lovely contemporary paintings on the floor. They are called Sphynx rugs. There is even a line of them that reproduces Andy Warhol paintings! They are easy to clean and pet friendly. However, I couldn't get one in a good size for under about $300.!
Then I started to think about what I had learned from my modern slavery class. Many cheap rugs are made by child slaves. Do I want to be responsible for a child's misery? Not for a rug, I say. So I decided to go to the Habitat for Humanity consignment store, which advertises many area rugs for cheap. And all the money goes to the charity.
