Non-print related... I had the opportunity to buy original Shag's and Ryden for 2-3k, I just didn't have the dough at the time.

I also could have bought a production Jack Skellington, posed with some different expressions heads floating around him in a nice glass case, for about 2k... the movie had come out, bombed and was not on video yet. Didn't have the money then, either, sigh.

Those are my only art purchase regrets.

I had True Grit carted and decided against it. Wish I hadn't.

only one in the past year I really wish I hadn't skipped. I had it in a cart at least once and backed out.
I'd gladly pay face for one, but not much more.

Do you regret pointing out a double negative that doesn't exist?

Heat Death. And not because it's worth a mint anymore- I really liked it but decided to buy a few gigposters instead.
just a foil for me today, thanks

Can I add someone in here that isn't me? Is that allowed?
