PRO TIP from the company itself:

Suppose it applies to all Shopify stores too. Not over til it says it's over.

Annoying.
This is the new "norm". People who cant afford things do it to F with people who are trying to actually purchase. The entire Phish Mexico package was this way... Said sold out in seconds, then carts started expiring and everything was available again.

Annoying & lame.

"Add to Cart" button is still live as of this writing. MegaBot must have somehow overlooked this drop. Up your game, you evil bag of bolts!

Still 103 in stock... since if someone can hold all of the stock in their cart it will say sold out... so they should really change their system to hold just one and maybe they would have not pissed off a whole bunch of people.

I don't get pissed anymore about cart holding. Nine times out of ten it's something I can live without. So, I guess, they're doing me a favor. :P I don't have the patience to spend a lot of time F5'g, anymore.

This is a nice print in that it has a sophistication in its simplicity. More along the lines of a Cinderella poster for grown-ups. I didn't try for one, but I like it.

Anyone wanna buy a slightly priced up Cinderella poster? $200 and it's yours, I'll even include free shipping! Send me a PM if you're interested. Don't listen to everyone saying there are still copies left at Cyclops, they're just trying to psych you out.

If they were smart, they'd so what places like Spoke Art do and make it so ya can't check out with more than 1 or 2 or whatever the limit is. BUT, TGT.

I didn't think it was bad. But definitely disappointing. I think Tong already nailed it though, so I'm curious to see if this will compare.
