Secondary Market

Limited editions that sell out at the publisher and continue to create collector demand are sometimes available on what is referred to as the Secondary Market. The value of any sold out edition is the result of this free market phenomenon based wholly on the price a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to accept.

The Secondary market is a free market phenomenon driven by supply and demand, individual buyers and sellers. No publisher or gallery controls or drives it. The fact that there is a Secondary Market for limited editions is a wonderful potential benefit of owning one, but should never drive your decision. Purchase art that speaks to you and enjoy it!

We will search for any sold out or hard-to-find print and order it for you. If you see images throughout our web site with "$ Call", it means that they are SOLD OUT through the publishing company and are no longer available at the issue price. To locate these pieces we must research the "Secondary Market".
  • Call us or email us with the artist, title, and price range. We use sources developed over our 12 years in business to locate your rare piece. There is no cost to you until we find what you are looking for at a price that is agreeable to you.
  • Once we find it, we will inform you of the price that we honor for 24 hours.
  • When you agree on the price and place an initial deposit, we will order the print from our source and have it shipped to us.
  • After the art passes our quality inspection, the remaining balance will be charged and your art will be shipped to you as per the terms arranged at the time of the order.

If we cannot get the art at the price and condition set at the time of order, the deposit IS refunded.
