Please help a fellow artist friend of mine

eski sent a bunch of her prints to be sold at Anthrocon at lobanorth's table as she couldn't be there herself. The way the prints were arranged was that there were 3-7 copies of each print within one sleeve and whenever a print was purchased, it could be pulled out and handed to the customer.

Unfortunately, due to a miscommunication with how the prints were arranged, instead of a print being pulled out of the sleeve when a customer purchased it, the /whole sleeve/ with all the prints was given to the customer, causing eski to lose that much in sales as well as quite a large chunk of her inventory which unfortunately she cannot afford to replace at this point in time.

If you are someone who has purchased one of eski's prints this past Anthrocon and received multiple copies in your purchase, it would be very decent of you to please give her back the extra prints.

Please check out her ArtSpots gallery to get a sense for her work and to see if you might have multiple prints of her artwork.

Just as an aside, I know that there are many furs who are more than willing to do the decent thing and only keep the print they paid for and return the other ones to her (she has offered to reimburse those honest folks with the shipping costs), but I would like to remind those who may be contemplating selling these additional prints, we are all aware of this loss, so any extra prints that show up on Furbid or Furbuy will be noticed immediately and the auctions likely removed. Just something to think about.

Please contact eski if you have any of her prints, she'd really appreciate it!

Thank you all for your time!

Oh and also, edit from lobanorth for clarification:
Your crosspost is appreciated but the fact that I am paying out of my own pocket for the mistake has not been noted and I think it should be made very clear. Regardless of how the situation plays out, Wolf Nymph will not be out anything from this nor will my assistants since I made a mistake in assuming we were all on the same page.

The situation does not warrant an assumption (by readers) that I or my helpers are ignorant or inattentive. This amounts to two friends trying to correct a mistake that nobody -- not the artist, the dealer or assistants, or buyers -- is particularly at fault for. On that grounds, we would appreciate any necessary edits for clarification.
