How much is a Hot Dog Snoopy Tote Bag by Butterfly Originals worth?
When buying old tote bags, condition is key. I don’t mind some signs of use in my Snoopy Tote Bag, if the price is right! With so many bags on the market, the Peanuts design really has to hit that sweet spot for me to consider buying it. For a bag that twangs my heart strings, I’d pay around $20-30 in mint condition. For a used bag, it depends on the condition issues vs. the love. While I might fall in love, it may be difficult to get someone else to find the same joy despite the flaws when it comes time to sell, so I try and keep purchases under $5-15.
