Over this past weekend, 4/14-15, our bookstore was burglarized. A person or persons rammed a bench from the Cinema Saver movie theater off the parking lot in the back of our store, into our back plate glass door. There was glass all over the place.
4 paintings/pictures were stolen. The police were called and are investigating.
Here is the information about the pictures, in case anyone should come across them.
1) Enamel on Copper, woman in a long blue dress with child standing in water, 12″by20″, signed “Jordin”.
