Over time, our (Melanie
and me) Peanuts collection of memorabilia has grow from the few items she had left
over from her girlhood to complete sets. She had the Hungerford Linus and Sally,
so we still needed to find Schroeder, Lucy, Charlie Brown, Pigpen, and Snoopy. Everything was
procured via eBay auctions.
It took a lot of patience to be able to get good quality items at an affordable
price. The "Peanuts:
The Art of Charles M. Schulz" book was very helpful in identifying which
Peanuts memorabilia items were made. The author mentioned that the rarest
Hungerford piece was the piano that came with Schroeder, so a saved search was
placed on eBay and after about a year, one came up for auction. We paid less
than $100 for it back around 2010. We're still in need of Lucy, Charlie Brown,
Pigpen, and Snoopy. Please let me know if you have these that you are will to
sell at a reasonable price.

Melanie made a blanket for Linus since the original was missing.
