Product Questions

Some items are part of our personal collection and not for sale. If there is no price, condition details, etc., then it’s not for sale. Please visit our For Sale section.
No, this is a small, home-based business selling mainly individual pieces and a printed-catalog would be quickly out of date.
No, please do not eat or chew on any of the collectibles. I will not be held responsible for any damages that occur from eating the collectibles, using the collectible for eating from, making food with the collectible, chewing on the collectible or ingesting the collectible. In-package baby & dog toys should be safe, but you use them at your own risk and under adult supervision. Non-packaged baby and dog toys were acquired as is and I therefore have no idea where they’ve been. If you choose to use them, I suggest thoroughly cleaning them before use, but I still take no responsibility for the collectibles used in this manner.
All items are kept in a dry, dark, smoke-free environment. Therefore they should not fade, mold, or smell. Any damage occurring from these conditions are described on the product page.

Collecting Peanuts Tips

Check out our in depth guides in our Peanuts Collecting 101 articles.

Before buying an expensive item, it’s always a good item to know what it is worth. A good place to start are collector’s books. Click here for a listing of Peanuts Collectors Books.

It’s a good idea not to run out and buy collectibles without knowing what’s common. Examples of items you’ll see at EVERY flea market, antique mall, etc: Snoopy on a doghouse Chex banks, Camp Snoopy Glasses, Fawcett Crest books. Just because they’re common, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy them, just buy them at a reasonable price.

When I first see a collectible I may want to purchase, I don’t look at the price. First, I decide how much I would want to pay for the item. Then, I look at the price. If it’s within the acceptable range, I purchase it. If not, it’s time to talk to the seller.

Don’t be afraid of asking for a discount. Antique stores will sometimes give discounts for items over $10. If the price isn’t already a bargain at flea market or garage sale, consider talking to the vendor/owner. Suggest a price a little lower than you want to pay, but don’t be too unreasonable. Let the vendor talk you up to your price. If you’re buying multiple items, a vendor will be more interested in making a deal with you.

If you’re looking for a specific comic and want the book it is published in, visit There you’ll find all the info on books and finding specific comics you need.

Peanuts items all have copyright dates of the year the characters were first in publication printed on them. Charlie Brown was first published in 1950, therefore everything with Charlie Brown on it will have that copyright date. Don’t let a dealer try and sell you something “old” just because of a copyright date. Read more on this topic in Peanuts Collecting 101.

Specialize. There are tons of collectibles out there – do you really want to own everything ever made with the Peanuts gang on it? Probably not. I suggest stick with one character: Snoopy, Woodstock, Pigpen, etc. Collect only a certain type of product: Avon bottles, books, Stuffed Animals, etc. Not only does it narrow your search, but it will save you money for the extra special collectible you just happen across.

The passing of Charles M. Schulz, in my opinion, has not raised the prices of the run-of-the-mill collectibles. There are still the same amount of collectibles out there plus all the new collectibles being mass produced at the moment. The only area this effects is Charles M. Schulz originals or signed pieces. They are unique and can no longer be produced, making them more valuable to collectors. Watch out for fakes!
