The Coolest Zinc Planters

I found the most scrumptious pair of Zinc Planters from the early 1900's with fabulous patina. They were made by Samuel Galkin Company of Providence, RI and even though I put them up for sale in my Ruby Lane store, I'm seriously thinking about taking them home.... that's the problem with being a dealer. Arghhh!!

JCovington has Antiques in Maine!

As of today, I have begun filling a new location in Cape Neddick, Maine with gorgeous French & English antiques. Many New Englanders and Boston area day-trippers are familiar with the fabled "antique alley" of southern Maine, and this is where I am - on US Route One in Tangibles with other well known antiquarians and dealers. So stop by or browse through some of my antiques on Ruby Lane.

Everyone is Looking for Something...

...what are you looking for? Almost everyday someone comes into my store, or calls or emails me with "something" they are having trouble finding. Coffee tables, fabrics, paintings, faux fur pillows, imari, blue willow etc.... So, I'd like to expand this search business - with 20+ years of antiques and importing and interior design, my mother i.e. fabulous business partner and I have resources galore and we'd like the privilege of helping you find that missing something. Give us a try. There is no obligation and the search is free until you decide to buy.

**Have you ever found something you wanted in a magazine and then in the resources section it was listed as "to the trade only?" Then give me a call and I may be able to get it for you a reduced rate.

Washable Slip Covers for LEE Furniture

Lee Industries has the upper hand in the upholstery world with machine washable and dryable slipcovers aka "coveralls." With kids and pets and a trying to get as much mileage from big purchases for the home, this is becoming the 'go to' living room furniture choice in my store...and if you can't wash them at least they can be dry cleaned.

These 50 washable fabrics were just released.... contemporary fabric for modern furniture!

The heavy linen I chose for the side chair is dry clean only.

This boudoire chair is one of several styles...and the slipcover is washable.
