Roo these will probably surface soon for close to face...I wish I knew you were having trouble cause I would have snagged you one - I only bought 1 for myself.
BTW Anyone check out the facebook page? Thought this was a funny read considering the drop was up for oh, probably a good 5 hours!RE: facebook
827 INK -i hate flippers. Calavera is already up on Ebay. wtf"- Sucks...
- Way lame... lets all give the seller bad feedback. Haha jk.
- People who do that ruin it for people who actually appreciate the artwork...
- i hate flippers too! i only sell something when I've run out of room for art on my walls and am getting rid of some to make space!
-What!? That pisses me off.
-Well that was ridiculously fast. What it all comes down to is greed. You guys make a great and beautiful print available and affordable so all us Sylvia Ji fans can appreciate her artwork even more. Then you have someone snatch up a print from a fan who probably wanted and deserved it more then them and flip it for an insane price all because they want to make an extra $100 or $200. Alexis Rosen is absolutely right. People who do that ruin it for the people who actually appreciate the artwork... On Audrey Kawasaki's website they have a rule about flippers. It's under their User Agreement and states, "Any customer caught selling a print purchased from this site at a higher price within a short time of the sale (referred to as “flipping”) will be identified, the order refunded, and possibly banned from buying items from this site in the future. Flipping is a serious disservice to Audrey, and does not allow for her work to be provided to the community as intended. Ideally we would like to provide prints to those who would appreciate it because one less flipper means one more happy fan! By registering with us, you acknowledge and respect this request, and understand the repercussions outlined above should you choose to ignore it." 827Ink should do that too!
- 827 INK - i'm working on getting a similar setup. been admiring that on Audrey's site. thanks Yvonne Velasco thank you!!!
- The guys over at Obey limit the sales to one per address and that seems to help the issue a bit... Maybe give that a try? This especially annoys me because I came on today hoping to pick one up and /just/ missed it. The one that could have been mine iis probably sitting on EBay now
-Yep, one per PO Box + strong anti-flipping terms."
This drop was announced a week in advance and was up for over 5 hours. If it weren't for flippers there would probably be about half the edition still available ...as well as some from the last set.
