Hi everyone,

Anyone of you having a Floating Lady 'floating around'?
If you are looking for a fair deal, please PM me. Please no crazy prices...

All the best,

Jitterbug

What does "no crazy prices" mean to you?

For a BNIP Mint, your not going to get it for a buck, I would imagine. You also need to understand that anyone who has a mint, NIP probably paid a lot for it themselves.

FWIW, it's sold for $320 on eBay.

The last used one sold for 99 USD, in january, with one bid. Seems about right to me. BNIP perhaps 1,5 - 2 x as much.

HI Richard, by crazy prices I mean 200 $ for a mint copy.
I would like to pay no more than 100 used, but including packaging. BNIB will be too expensive, I guess.

That sounds indeed reasonable, killertweety

You won't find one used, with packaging, for $100.
But used, without packaging, for $100 is what I think you'll find.

Gabe Fajuri has lots of Tenyo here (including many items not listed, and that's worth a phone call): https://quickerthantheeye.com/products/search

Yes it does, but good luck finding a mint, unopened one for $150 or $200. I am guessing the person who owns one like that probably paid that the first time round, but then again, you never know you might get lucky Smile .

The problem with 'used' Floating Ladies (that sounds akward :p ) are the possible scratches on the clear plate, which make it a hassle to perform when the lightning conditions aren't 'excellent' ... . Always make sure to ask for close up photo's of the trick when used condition.

Also be careful, but I have seen a number of these that are broken.

How do you mean Richard?

The silk screening being damaged or the special something being "loose" and having our assistant moving up and down on her own?

The mechanism ceases to function.

The first version I had was broken: I couldn't make the magic happen from behind/from the backside of the frame ... those who know the trick, know what I'm talking about.
