Sunline snow globe

I am considering selling my 25th anniversary snow globe Dale gave to me for being the proud owner of several sunnies and responsible for bringing a few others to our family! It is really a treasured piece to me but afraid it won't mean much to my "kids " later on. Can anybody tell me what I should expect? Maybe Ebay? Janalee

Hi Jan,

Even though only 1008 were made, value all depends. Shortly after the company closed, someone put a few up on eBay within weeks of each other and the prices they sold for were crazy. I think one went for $80 or $90, maybe more. But, I don't think they'll ever get that again. I bought a spare one last year for $10. I figured I'd like to keep mine nice and I'd be more inclined to display another.

Just curious, what number is it? I wouldn't mind having a low number one, but I can't say it's really worth more.

Also, does it have the original box & styrofoam? What about the plastic wrapping? That will help the value. The $10 one I bought did have all of that too.

Also, does the music box part work? I did a complete rebuild on that one I bought because it didn't. If it doesn't, that's a good sign that it has been leaking water, which mine had. Lost about 1/3 or 1/2 of it. Basically the water just sits on a rubber plug which as the scene attached. They siliconed around the rubber plug when they put it in, but it does give way over time, especially if it ever froze. I now store both of mine upside down (but in the box) to prevent this. I was luckily able to rebuild/clean the music box part, but it was yucky.

You have a great story behind this and I'm glad you're trying to find it a good home. Even though 1008 were made, many of them went to dealers as gifts and they've been broken/thrown out/forgotten about, etc. I got my original one as a gift from Sunline too, and it's a very special treasure. Aside from shirts/hats/brochures, it was my first Sunline 'artifact'.

Hi Jon! Figured I would hear from you as to the 'value '...mine is in perfect condition, #340, but no wrappings etc. I am trying to see that some of my favorite things go to appreciative people and not end up in the trash! Time to attend to those things is sooner rather than later! Thanks for the info...Jan

This is definitely the time of year to sell too if it needs to be shipped, but make sure it's packaged well since it has no box. I think that group of them that were sold happened in like November, so people were worried about them freezing in the mail. Supposedly they have some alcohol in them, but I wouldn't count on it. What was in my second one sure stunk when I opened it up, and it didn't smell like rubbing alcohol.
