This is a disposable camera that she used to take selfies and concert photos last year. It was originally listed for MIXNYC and the winner now wants to pay it forward, it seems. The pictures are sure to be better than those she posts on Facebook and Twitter.

I'm confused. The quote at the top says "Photos developed, CD included. Camera case opened in order to develop but Autograph still intact.”

But the description at the bottom says pics not developed and they have no idea what's on the camera...

not sure how buying a camera, developing and keeping the pics, then reselling the camera is paying it forward. Maybe, as I said, I'm confused.

I'm also confused. Why would Alice take photographs and sign the camera "especially for this auction"? Did you tell her the proceeds would go to a charity or is she kind enough to help you earn a few quick dollars?

EDIT: Nevermind. I see the seller is re-selling the camera from another auction.

Yes, reselling from another auction. Paying it forward as in trying to make back their money, obviously. The donation was already made, maybe the seller's apartment is cluttered with autographed items and wants to make someone happy with this item?

"Paying it forward as in trying to make back their money, obviously."

"paying it forward" is when somebody does you a favor or good deed, instead of repaying them, you pay it forward by doing somebody else a favor, who then will hopefully pay it forward by doing someone else a favor. I don't think it has anything to do with making money back by reselling something you bought.

You're right. I meant to say paying it forward in making available an autographed item that they would not have been able to obtain themselves.

Thanks Art for pointing out the glaring error and defining what Pay It Forward means

Rainbow, shhhhhh. You've said enough already

That wouldn't even be remotely paying anything forward. That's trying to get your money back from an impulse buy after disappointing results.
Pretty pretty please don't you ever ever feel like you're less than f**ckin' perfect!

Jerseygirl, I don't know what results the seller got, I know the person and they asked me to put it on here.

Oh boo. I saw the subject line and thought it was going to be one of those rare Alice Ripley Collectible Bobbleheads.

EmilyFaye, yes, they have been developed. The person selling the item won the camera as part of the MixNYC auction in December where actors and musicians took photos on a disposable camera. The description should be fixed because it seems to be causing confusion. The pics were developed but they took care to not have the case destroyed (which usually happens when you develop a disposable) so the autograph is completely intact and there are prints and a CD available. Alice was very creative with the pictures and the buyer will be the only one seeing them.

The satisfaction that the more you answer and bump this thread, the more attention the auction gets. Thanks for your help!

There should have been bobbleheads for Next to Normal and Women on the Verge. Why didn't the merch people think of it!

Rainbow, I'm selling an old sofa cause I just bought a new one. Could you place it on Ebay for me to pay it forward.

BTW, how do we know the pictures included came out of THAT camera and that the seller didn't make another set for him/herself to perhaps sell later in another Ebay auction. Can you document how the chain of custody was maintained.

Alright, $2. That's my final offer.

To me, this is bogus because the "cool" thing about the camera is having photos taken by Alice that the winner of the auction would be the only person to have.

Your friend already developed the photos and I'm sure is keeping a set for herself. The photos are no longer unique and the camera itself is just an unusable signed piece of plastic.

My friend is not a she. And the photos will forever be unique no matter how many copies are made.

And why are you all watching it in Ebay? If you think it's bogus, look somewhere else.

"And the photos will forever be unique no matter how many copies are made."

Do you need to google what unique means or something? Here, let me help: "Being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else".

The images Alice shot are the only one of their kind; you can copy them all you want, they will still be the unique images she took herself. Are you saying that a famous painting would not be unique because you have a copy of it and not the original that hangs in the Louvre?

I would honestly be interested in buying this because the pictures sound kinda awesome, but $50 is a joke. I'd pay like $2 at the Flea. reselling something bought in a charity auction for profit is despicable
