How you can still shop online and news on our retail store in Severance

Due to all the changes with Colorado Sales Taxes and the extra bookkeeping involved, we have decided to only offer online shopping in our eBay store. eBay takes credit cards, Pay Pal and lots of other forms of payments. It will greatly simplify things for us, since eBay handles all the destination sales tax rules. We are still open in Severance for walk-in trade and if you are local just give us a call to be sure we are in. The link for our eBay store is: Country Waterbed Store | eBay Stores

Thank you so much for all the business you have given us on our website and we hope you will continue to shop with us at eBay,

Our eBay store


We wanted to post a link here for our eBay store. Sometimes we don’t have the same things posted on our website as we do on eBay. We are working on getting everything on both sites to match but time limitations have prevailed.  So if you are looking for something here and don’t see it. Please check our other store.  Thank you Bill

Flannel Sheets are here

We have some additional colors in the flannel sheets now.  We are still waiting for our other percale sheets.  Since Tri Sew went out of business our sources are limited since we only buy sheets made in the USA and not the microfiber sheets from China.  If you have been looking at some Tri Sew sheets be sure to buy them before they are sold out.  We hope you all have a great 2020 and want to Thank You for continuing to support our business.  Bill

Just Stocked in New Sheets

It is with great sadness that we have recently found out that Tri Sew is closing shop.  We did grab as many sheets as we could and have just stocked them in.  So if you are wanting some get them while you can.  Maureen always made the best 6 pockets with a deeper pocket and nice sized pillow cases. We did get in some of those spring colors again as well.

We also got some Mayfield sheets in and the sea shell pattern is back in Stock.  The Zebra comforter is in stock also.  We did stock some more sewn at the bottom sheets in 200 tc and 300 tc.

We did restock the flannels also.

As usual we thank you for your continued support of our store in Severance.

New Sales Tax information and Use Tax Information since the new decision in the Supreme Court

Hi,  We want to post an update on here about the new laws that are being posted in some states.  Some of these states have laws on the books already and some are in the process.  What I know right now is we have not had the volume in sales to have to report but times are changing and some states are wanting reports sent at the end of the year on sales as low as $50-$100.  This is not to discourage you from buying from us since we don’t have a building in each state just a statement to let you know you may be subject to use tax if you buy online.  We got a notice last year on parts and paid our use tax in Colorado which is 2.9 % on our online purchases.  It was a small amount less than $10.00 for the year.  I will be watching for the changes but for now I have a statement on some of the states that have clarification on the books.  Here is the statement;

Local Pickup available if you are in Northern Colorado

Hi this post is for our northern Colorado customers who would like to use our new website and save on shipping.  I have added local pickup as an option.  If you would like to use that option just add what you would like to your cart, checkout but choose local pickup.  It will show the Severance local tax if you pick up the order here but after our initial shipping introductory offer goes off you will save quite a bit if you are close to pickup your order.   Thanks for making us your waterbed store.  Bill and DiAnne
