Costco, best known for selling bulk toilet paper and bargain electronics, has started selling fine art again after a six-year break.The discount retailer currently has 10 pieces of art listed on its website, although all are out of stock.

They range from an oil painting called “Flowers in a Pot” by R. Cot, for $779.99 to “Nonpareil Bunting” by California-based artist Heather Robinson, for $1,699.99.

It’s not the first time Costco has delved into the art world. It sold fine art until about six years ago, when questions were raised about the authenticity of two Picasso drawings sold online, according to The New York Times.

Greg Moors, a San Francisco art dealer, is supplying the company with stock, and working primarily with living artists to avoid any suspicion of forged signatures, he told the NYT.
