I'm telling myself (because I couldn't pull the trigger) that if the welcome mat included the life vest, I would've done it.

Spray can - hopefully my answer was solid.
didn't know what to put for the answer. on my screen it said, "why does art matter?" but the why was crossed out, so i thought it was a trick asking plainly "does art matter?" and i just said yes. might have made a mistake there.
i flip therefore i am

Went with Blue’s “Not really” for an answer and then elaborated with another sentence of maybe 5 or so words.

P.S. Thanks Blue!

Are we not assuming that everyone who puts in for unlimited item will get it? Since we only get one chance its a toss up if you want to chase a "high valued" item or just play it safe and order a mug?

I find it amusing that people think if they put in for an unlimited edition that guarantees they will get something. That's a huge leap. It states about a dozen times that things are made from items found, do you think they will find enough spray cans to fulfill the 1000's or 10,000's of people that put in for them? Do we think Banksy is going to set up a sewing shop to produce welcome mats for the masses for years to come? Small quantities may come back in stock but the idea that an unlimited edition is really unlimited is kind of funny.

To fabricate the mats Banksy has teamed up with the organisation 'Love Welcomes' who work with women in detainment camps in Greece. You can make your order by visiting their website here. All proceeds are retained locally to help refugees access key services.
in regards to the mat at least^ (from the item description)

"un·lim·it·ed. adjective. not limited or restricted in terms of number, quantity, or extent."

Are you suggesting that Banksy isn't being 100% honest with us!?!?!?

He'll probably hand deliver it

Also saw someone comment on UA that they have a feeling the tag on the mat is going to be signed.

I just hope that each print will be signed and numbered with a thumbprint on the back.

Going for the used vest.

Did peeps get a confirmation that step 2 was successful? Page seemed to refresh but didn’t change.
I got an email of the “order” confirmation, which I didn’t read. I didn’t go for the vest though. Doubt it’s any different for any of the items.
