(for Mad Men Only)

Harry Haller had a carpet store in a part of town that you would only visit in the day-time and then only on sunny days. Kilim, Azerbaijani, Isfahan, and Dhurrie were a few of the names spoken in harsh whispers in the dark corners of the store. Little light came through the smoke grimed windows. Almost un-noticed among the hanging carpets was a dark doorway with a small sign “Harry Haller’s Records (for Mad Men Only)”. Bins of CD’s, LP’s, 45’s, 78’s and on a shelf an Edison wax cylinder all of these had the theme of wolves of the steppes.
