I don't even vend much, but I remember one time some person was trying to AI the Experiment EI back when it was worth more than 20k. I put mine up for an insanely high price, but lower than what they wanted to inflate it to, and the AI'er bought it up. I made like 400k or something off of it and bought the item back for less than it was originally worth. lol

Nice! See usually, when I buy something it'll go down right after. Like I fell asleep during the summer sale event when I wanted to buy lovely lucie lucie again, because im on eastern time so I had to stay up till 3am, and I missed it so I had to buy lucie for 10.6m and then idk. Maybe 4 minutes after it went down to like. 9m, then 8m and I was like. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO omg but it's back up so it's all good

              »»» The Mad Hatter would have been my best vend, though I did not profit that much from it. I had purchased it for 8 million gold and then sold it later for 13 million gold.

              I am not very good at vending so I do not do it very often.

I've never had any super huge vending failures, some disappointments kinda like your Lucie thing though. I can't time things right. emotion_facepalm
Picolitrosso's Urn 1st gen.

Back when the artists made more poses than items could handle, they had to remove half of them. I anticipated the eventual fix to the pose limitation issues, and went to the Market to buy the newly finished 1st gen and bought one for 70k. I sold it for 800k some months after the pose limit was fixed.

I could only think of one since I tend to keep majority of what I've bought and the number of attempts I had at investing went bad. My best would be from buying Midnight Rainbows for around 500k and sold a couple for 1.2m.

Instead of telling my best, I'll tell you my worst.

Zombie G CORP Labcoat, for a few years they were over 1mil gold.
I spent 3 years questing one. RIGs were being announced at this time. I didn't care.
I finally had enough and I bought a labcoat for 1.25-1.5 mil.
Literally the NEXT day they plummited to 100k each. Why?
The RIG released them. :I

I was gifted a first gen one myself, before they repaired the poses. I was utterly pleased, especially when they fixed the issue!

I wish we still had EI's that had that issue... as in, too many poses ;D

I don't vend because it is taking advantage of other peoples mistakes and is really disrespectful.

I don't invest either because i don't really care.
