While planning for their retirement, Paul and Eileen Jorgensen, founders of The Magic Carpet, began a conversation with two of their friends and rug lovers who like many customers expressed their desire to see the rug shop, a landmark of Nevada City, somehow continue. That conversation grew into a plan, and then became a reality!
With great excitement and joy, Paul and Eileen announced the re-opening of The Magic Carpet under the capable management of Peter Cohen and Carolien van Straten starting February 15, 2013.
In celebrating this new beginning, The Magic Carpet is offering a sale of 25% off all rugs, statues, pillows and textiles, and 10% off rug washing services until May 1, 2013.
Paul and Eileen will continue to support the store’s success as buyers, appraisers and consultants, traveling the world and sending back beautiful hand-knotted rugs and ethnic artifacts for The Magic Carpet’s distinctive customers.
Peter and Carolien will bring their enthusiasm and expert guidance to customers at the store and they invite you to stop by and say hello
Paul and Eileen wish to express heartfelt gratitude for all the wonderful support received and delightful friendships enjoyed during their long journey as owners of the Magic Carpet in Nevada City for the past 33 years.
And now the magic continues!
