I have read on some thrift reselling blogs about Sandra Boynton's whimsical cartoon drawings on products like greeting cards and mugs from the 80's. Over the last few months, I came upon a few items here and there.
At one particular thrift store that I go to, I have found unmarked, brand new Sandra Boynton greeting cards twice! Believe it or not, some vintage Boynton cards sell on ebay for $70.
Unfortunately, I have no idea why some sell for big bucks and some have less appeal. These Christmas cards I found recently show these little guys under a Santa Hat on the cover...
...and when you flip the card open, it reads "And Happy New Year from all of us!" under a party hat.
Then at my local MCC Thrift Store, I spotted this novelty Boynton travel mug labelled "Untippable Mug for: Car, Truck, Boat, Klutz".
I paid $2 for this and it is in perfect condition, along with its padded bottom. Again, not sure why, but some Boynton mugs are selling on ebay for $30. This one seems to go for about half that.
If anyone has any more information on why Sandra Boynton products are collectible, please share as I would love to know!
