STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

Ann Pomeroy Scales stepped into the lobby of the Argyros Performing Arts Center Thursday night where she was volunteering for the Sun Valley Summer Symphony's Winter Festival. And she couldn’t believe what she saw.

There, on the floor, holding up a table of flowers, was the Pomeroy family rug, which she hadn’t seen in probably 40 years.

“I recognized it from the edge that the dog had chewed on,” she said. “It’s interesting to think of the journeys it must have taken.”

Ann Pomeroy Scales received a start when she saw the carpet.
 

The carpet had graced the home of the Pomeroy family while they lived on Bainbridge island as Scales was growing up And when the Pomeroys moved to Sun Valley, her parents brought it with them.

But it didn’t fit the new home. And, so, they tried to sell it, then gave it away.

Somehow it magically found its way back into circulation when Studio 11 was hired to provide the seating for the Sun Valley Summer Symphony’s inaugural Winter Festival held Thursday through Saturday.

Marilyn Pauley was among those who was fascinated by the story.

“We should get together and buy this magical carpet for the theater as a permanent part of the theater lobby,” she said.
