False alarm from this morning when they sent out the email. Site crashed and when it came back it still had the sold out (from original sale I guess).

They have decided to do a lottery since the website cant handle the traffic. I'm okay with this since I'll actually stand some kind of change now.

Dear friends,
Due to unprecedented interest in the Banksy Welcome Mat, we have had issues with our server and as a consequence our sales process.
In light of this, the fairest path forward is to randomly select 500 people from our waiting list to purchase the current batch of 500 Banksy Welcome Mats.
If you are selected, you will be notified by email before the end of the week. Please rest assured we will be doing this using a fair random process to select people. If you are not selected, you will remain on the waiting list for the next batch.
We apologize for the delay and appreciate your patience, especially everyone who has been trying to access our site today.
With best wishes,
Abi Hewitt, Co-Founder, Love Welcomes

I don't even know what I would do with one if I did get it. Sure as hell not letting my friends wipe their feet on it.

I am sure we will see a bad ass, float framed, welcome mat soon on here. Or do I have to head over to UAA?
There is already a float framed one on UAA...although I would not call it badass! More of a temporary stick in something until you can figure out what might make it look decent

willatter and I might shop at the same place. I recently picked up what I hope is a legit "You Have Beautiful Eyes" print. I'll be contacting Pest Control, but I'd love any additional information about it (even if it's fake) because I can't find anything online.

Ha. You don't shop estate sales in Austin do you? I was skeptical from the get-go. I compared the COA with a known real one and noticed the stars surrounding seal on the top right were printed and not embossed like the real one. The tenner looked fake as well. It was an easy pass but I managed to pick up a bunch of Odd City prints while I was there.......

Noticed that after the fact. That one was the exact one I was looking at the numbers on the tenner are the same. Wonder how much he paid for it? I had it down to $300.
