On my last cruise, in the Western Caribbean, there were a few places of business that sold Oriental Rugs. I was tempted to buy one. I suppose those fancy rugs fall into the tax loophole along with: Loose jemstones, works of art, and bedsheets.
Anyway, I know nothing at all about Oriental Rugs and purchasing them while on cruise. Has anybody had the expierience(s) of doing so? How much do they cost? Is it hard rolling them up and taking them onboard the ship? How about alternative shipping? Any advice would be appreciated.
