“When I inherited my mother’s Oriental Rug, I was told it had been in the family for years. It was in good condition, but we were really unsure how valuable it was and uncertain if we wanted to use it or keep it stored. Stephen came out, gave us a verbal appraisal, assuring us it was a good rug, but not something priceless we should keep that protected. He even helped us get it set-up in the family room! He was awesome to work with!” – T. Bowers
