Turkish carpet merchant visits Grand Marais


Carpet dealer Cemal Uzun is touring the U.S. with his carpet selection because a downturn in Turkish tourism has hit the business he works for, Anatolian Carpets, hard. He was here in Grand Marais along with local resident Ann Marie Mershon, who spent years living in Turkey and has written several books about her experiences. They chatted with Dave the day before the big carpet show at the Cook County Community Center.
