Ehh, it's a toughie, because both sides can be
If it was a thanks-for-your-business omake cel,
I'd probably have very little hesitations in
selling it off to make room for something I
really wanted. But with that extra personal level
but-I-got-it-for-you... that makes it a bit more
difficult because not only did someone buy a cel
that they liked... but they passed it along as a
present (and ergo, a loss) to someone they
*liked* enough to give up something special to.
Consequently, the cel suddenly aquires a personal
level of meaning.
It gets difficult, because it would be incredibly
cheap to say, "Here, you can buy this back from
me--- it's the gift you gave me! Remember it?"
But by the same token, if you *are* getting rid
of it, it's probably because you need the money
the cel is worth, more than you need the cel
If you do decide to sell, and if you have it on
display on your website, you might quietly take
it down and not mention it to your friend and
hope that it never comes up in conversation.
Because, unless you tell them that you sold it,
they wouldn't know... and knowing will probably
hurt the relationship. Then again, so would lying
to protect their feelings, if they tripped you
If it was me, I'd probably hang onto the cel for
an indefinite amount of time, and get rid of
something with comparatively little personal
attachment. I could probably make up the fundage
elsewhere, unless someone was making a private
offer of hundreds of dollars for that particular
cel only. And if someone *was* doing such a
thing... you should consider yourself very lucky
to have such a generous friend, and think about
the consequences/implications of your actions. ^_^
No easy answer! Sorry!
