SHE thought she'd got a bargain, so took to Facebook to boast about it.
But Pauline Richardson probably wasn't expecting the amount of people who took issue with the original price of her "best bargain everrrr".
"I'm a big leopard print fan and today I fell in love with the rug but as it was displayed high up i could only make out the £1195.00," Pauline wrote alongside a picture of the eye-catching Tibetan rug on the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group on Facebook.
"Can you imagine how fast I said yes, I'm buying this when I saw the other tag of £119.50….over £1000 pounds off."
She grabbed the "bargain" from Frith Rugs in Warrington.
Pauline also shared a picture of the tag, which gave further details about the rug, such as that it measures 6ft by 4ft and is made of 100% wool pile.

"Even if it was sentient, could fly and was made of actual leopards there's no way I'd pay that much for a rug," a third commented.
As someone else wrote: "That is an amazing bargain….. if you can afford the £119.50 I can't even afford £19.50.
"My doormat was from the pound shop!"
But others insisted the rug was worth the price, with one explaining: "That rug will last you a lifetime, anyone who's saying they wouldn't spend £110 on a rug probably already has by buying multiple cheaply made rugs."
"The work that goes into those rugs is incredible, the workmanship alone is worth £1195," another added.
