Here is Phillys "smart buy" he bragged about after I pointed out I bought a George Rodrigue very limited edition poster for $750. A quick search shows one selling at auction a few months ago for $6k. This was his response!

here's a painting i bought in cambodia from a local artisan for $25. it's massive, almost five feet wide, and took actual talent to paint, and it looks good in my office and didn't cost me 5-6k to buy

in other words it was a smart buy

So lets see, paid $25, hauled back halfway across globe. Can sell for $30 and net $25.40 after ebay and paypal fees with current free listing special.

GEE, WHAT A SUPER SMART BUY, $.40 cents possible profit and you only have to haul across globe, take picture, list for sale, wrap up, ship out. Wow did I get shut down with my laughable couple thousands in appreciation from my dumb purchase.

It's a smart buy because he likes it.  It's also a smart buy because he isn't a frivolous spending idiot like you so $25 is a good deal for buying art you like.

 

You decorate your house based on how much something costs.

Much like your rapidly-depreciating Bentley, he bought something to use, not to resell.

I never used my rapidly depreciating Bentley in an economic appreciation argument, the "smart buy" was his response on an art appreciation/ investment argument where he is supposed to be showing the difference between my dumb buy and smart buy! Go read!

Who cares, that wasn't the reason it was posted, he used it as an example of his "smart buy" to refute my dumb purchase. So don't change the context he posted it in trying to save him from looking stupid.

Alice, I'm so, so sorry that you have Philly's cock down your throat so far all you can say is...  "but, but Philly B!!!"

 

 

Actually, I'm not really sorry at all... it's really funny.

smart for what reason dickface?  not everything bought is bought as an investment?

 

 

did you buy your cars as an investment?  were they smart purchases based on the fact that you could have spent far less money on vehicles that would still do the same job?

If you are spending less than a few grand on art you should spend it on pieces that speak to you or that you simply enjoy. Worrying about the resale values of these pieces isn't productive, chances are you would do better in the stock market with that money. Believe it or not, art's primary purpose is not investment.
