The description simply said, "Original signed watercolor of a lady. Probably early 1900s." The lady in the painting is holding and smelling what appears to be a China rose. (Ya'll know how much I LOVE China roses.) It would be a perfect addition to my collection of rose-related items.
Old Covesville Store has an option to buy their items via PayPal. I contacted them, they sent an invoice to me via email, I paid it ... and, just that quickly, the little painting was MINE. The price for such a treasure? $20.
I took a roadtrip earlier today to go to Covesville to retrieve my painting. While I was there, I perused the place, marveling at the unique items that the owners manage to bring in. Rick and Sarah, the owners, work very hard to have an incredible array of mostly-American antique furniture and other items. Things sell quickly, because the items are that special and the prices are almost too good to be true.
If you have some time to waste, click HERE to see the most recent items on the store's 'Just In' page on their web site. New items are posted on or about Wednesday evening and sometime on the weekend, and other times when new things arrive and are unloaded. If you are in the area, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed if you stop by. If you can't go there in person (and I can't do it very often), you can do what I do ... check in and ogle the new offerings online.
