A couple of weeks ago I sold a 4AD pencil and a badge on ebay, as an experiment (I thought they’d go for lots of money, and some people at 4AD didn’t). Needless to say, they went for lots of money. (This money will all be going to a charitable cause, btw – not me)
Anyway, I don’t know why these were done, but they were. The badges are smart though, quite old school style.
So there you go.
