and deprive myself of my first ever fairey flipping? I'm selling mine for a tiny $50 profit (after international shipping) at $130, compared to some of those crazy people looking for $200+

You'll get your second order canceled. Maybe both if you tried to be tricky.

I am so glad EB was down yesterday.

This is the first time that I got a print that I really liked and really wanted. I think it looks great and I would love to see more enviromental ad type posters. If we are going to change the way we thing about power and energy, why not start with a very prolific artist of our generation, and use his art ability to our (the earth's) advantage. This will be hanging in my dining room as soon as i get it.

I was also able to order two. I had one in a cart that cancelled out, so i tried again, while at the same time refreshing the first page. This allowed me to order 2. I emailed Obey and they said they will cancel the other one for me. If you look at their newly updated FAQ's it notes that they will automatically cancel any order over 1.....

Second one was bought by my sister on her c/card and mailed to her address. That's the one i'm selling.
I'm keeping my own one. And still no bites at $135, even though one's sold for $160? weird.

Does your sister live in Dublin too? Seems like shipping would eat into your profit margin if both are going to Ireland.

For some reason I just wasn't really feeling this one.
Have you ever tasted skin?
