"winning" is a relative term here. I think both sides are pretty happy with the way things are going. They get their limited paper, I get to sell a lot of paper to my customers, everyone is happy. And then we get to dance like we're actually angry at each other from time to time.

ACTUALLY- you might want to check that. I like to point out that things I'm giving away for free with my orders have a secondary market value, which means people could buy my work that they want, and then flip the freebie, thereby offsetting the cost of the purchase. Which is kind of actually helping my customer out, but I guess you could interpret it as malicious if you wanted to paint me in that light.

You are telling people how valuable your art work is on the secondary market to rationalize why they should buy your mystery tubes or the next print series. You even link ebay sales in your emails. That doesn't even include trying to drum up sales by including an old Stout you just so happened to find laying around or from a buddy who didn't want it anymore.

Crusade on my friend.

But you are contradicting yourself over and over. Is it like this in your thread?

And the Beanie Baby thing, how many millions of those were produced?

Ya know, the Walmart comments from others could be referring to mass produced stuff. You may be the overly sensitive type that wants to assume that they are making fun of poor people, but just reading the few posts in this thread, I think you are just full of fudge.

In Tim's world, ebeaners are either elitist or flippers.

Yeah, right. This time next year all art ever produced is going to be worthless.

Nope. There's lots of great people here. They're usually smart enough to to wade in on these mud-wrassling matches though.

I think it's funny that he sells stuff by marketing the fact that it will be valuable on the secondary market only to sell multiple editions of said print (with no mention during the original sale) and drop the bottom out from the same person he was trying to 'help out' by linking ridiculously high ebay sales in his email blasts. I guess they just shouldn't hold on to them too long.
