my brother went to some fancy art exhibition in east London the other week

they were doing a raffle at £200 a go to win one of these special one off pieces

the one off pieces were boxes with a rag in and you get an invisible piece of artwork that lives in the carboard box and dust every now and then with the rag

complete bollocks!

You'll probably get posted a beater figure and then he'll argue that £100 is the going rate for that particular figure :roll: and state your getting a bargain at the same time.

And then he's got "no returns accepted" lol


What a dick :lol: I actually think if he tweaked it a bit it would work better. If he stated once you pay a certain value he would give you something worth more than what you pay him. Off course you are going by his valuations :lol: why the fuck would someone pay for something like that :roll: if I wanted to spend £100 on something thats in a box on eBay I'd like to see what I am buying :lol:

Just to let you guys know this is my eBay account and I assure you I don't sell crap.

I've had people thank me after the box has arrived for the stuff I've put in there.

Yes it might look doddgy but it's a way to get rid of figures I've picked up in lots and have a little fun at the same time.

Hello I own you an apology and this has learned me not to comment on these eBay sales again here. I was wrong because I have no idea what was being sold or it's value. I meant no harm and i hope there's is no hard feelings. And if people are thanking you it has to be all good.

Edited fixing spelling mistakes :oops:

It's ok. I can see why people would think it's a scam but that's not what I'm doing. I've picked up so many collection in the last year I'm stuck with loads of Jabba's goons and people just don't buy them as I'm guessing already have them. This is a easy way to pass them on for me and if it is against eBay rules then they must turn a blind eye to it.
