I bought that at TRPS last year, owned it for all of two hours before trading it straight-up to a friend for a Whale Bone Grove Standard, because I had already lined up a trade: a WBG for my top ISO.

In retrospect, I should have gone home and eBayed the TRPS deal, bought another WBG, traded for the ISO and kept the extra $300! :)

No regrets on that one, though. I got mine, the ISO provider got theirs, and my friend, who was late to TRPS, got the show print. Win-win-win situation.

I'm quite happy with my sale of that one.

also sold Hope for $599 just because I got nervous in April when Hilary started to gain momentum(for like a month :x )...
but held on to Progress :clap:
but it kills me that Hope goes for just as much and even more because the public knows that image more :hanging:

Probably this guy . . .

I regret selling it because I really liked it. I only got rid of it to fund my first and only Sheppard original though. It was definitely worth it I just wish I could have sold something else at the time instead.

I gave this actually as a gift to my brother, and framed it... but I really liked it a lot but it matched his home color scheme perfectly. I'm not too bummed out though, I can always rebuy this print from a user selling it.


My biggest regret at the moment is recently sending a free test print along with a regular print to a user. I took so long to ship a print the user wanted and to make up for the long time it took me, I included a Burlesque test print. Not my favorite test print, but still a unique piece I gave up. It's out of good heart though because the user is a good guy and he deserves it for all the good deals he's always made for me. But I do regret it a bit, but of well :-)

Thankfully, there aren't many. And most of those, I've managed to re-obtain in some way, shape, or form. One of the few remaining is actually on the way to me at the moment... the Tara/MMM Rapture collaboration :) Actually a bit harder than you'd expect it to be, especially to get one without a coffee stain on it as Michael told me once that a nice stack of 'em had a cup spilled on a whole corner area (if I'm remembering it right)...

I also framed that and gave it away. Housewarming gift.

Come on EB, how many more of your deep regrets can I have casually dismissed? Line 'em up! :)

I do miss this one for some reason. It is a fantastic print.

strangely, some of the higher end prints I've sold in the past year i don't regret selling as they went to members here who REALLY wanted them badly. It helps when you know they are going to an appreciative home.
