Does anyone know if a Thomas Kinkade library edition print, titled Forest Chapel, is worth anything? It's in a beautiful matted frame and about 24x20. Also, any ideas of where I could sell it? I tried to sell it at a yard sale for $200.00, Craiglist and eBay with no buyers.

I wouldn't believe they are worth very much as they are produced by the thousands. But you should be able to find a art dealer in your area and ask them. They would have a better opinion.

First check to see if it is signed. Usually the signature would be at the bottom. Also look to see if it is a numbered print. It will have for example 121/300 near the bottom. That means it is the 121st print of 300. If it is signed and numbered it may very well be worth something. If it isn't you would be lucky to get 12.50 for it. That is the going price online.

I think the Thomas Kinkade art is very pretty, while not exactly my taste. What did you pay for it? I looked him up on line and he is a real character, to say the least. I was shocked! Sounds like a good man gone very wrong. Sad.

Thomas Kincade has put his paintings on everything, the value is very low maybe just for the frame. He has no value maybe an origional might be worth something, but most he has is prints and such, sorry to find out what it is or not worth, buy for the beauty of his paintings, not for future investment value.

I've tried ebay and can never find one as big as mine and one that says library edition. I didn't purchase it it was a gift from my mother-in-law several years ago when he was so popular. Not my decor choice either but very pretty and thoughtful gift. We don't really have an art dealer around here and Thomas Kincade store still has high prices on them but doesn't buy back. Thanks for help.

I am not familiar with Thomas Kinkade, but I suspect that if he has loads of these prints sold, it is worth the price of the framing, and not any more. I would suggest you find someone who likes this sort of thing, and gift it to them.

I own a Thomas Kinkade print, The Forest Chapel, the library edition. I am getting married and we could sure use some extra cash. We want to post this on Craig's List or eBay, but are not sure what to even ask for it. We are not trying to break anyone, but don't want to give it away. Can anyone suggest what we should ask for it?

You should google for information. There are likely similar prints on eBay or similar sites. You could also take it to an art shop or antique and collectibles shop and see what they would give you for it. I have no idea of the value of Thomas Kinkade prints, but I do know that unlimited edition prints (or even limited editions of 500 or so), framed nicely, are not that valuable. New, I can buy one from a quite popular and famous local artist for about $600, but half of that cost is the framing. Second hand, I don't know what people would pay. Prints do not appreciate in value, because there are so many of them.

I have googled Thomas Kinkade prints, the official website, and see a framed print that looks like yours for $195. You should have a look for yourself. If that is the case, and this is like your picture, you could maybe get $175, although I think $150 would be more realistic. However, if you offer it for auction, you might do better because people can get carried away. I see on the website that there are some framed prints that are being sold for nearly $1000, but I suspect that these are very large, printed on canvas with the artist's thumbprint on the back, and very elaborately framed. I'm sorry if you thought you might have a more valuable piece, but I suspect not. Good luck with your wedding.

What is the value of a Thomas Kinkade library edition print titled "Cottage Garden"? It's a large print, the size you would hang above a sofa, nicely framed and matted.

Why not try buying one just to see what others might be asking?

you can do the research yourself.
Check out the listings on eBay or Craigslist.
There are a LOT of Thomas Kinkade library editions but maybe not too many of yours.

Sellers do their research before they list but the true value is what is sold.
eBay has a sold listings to check also.
The value of the painting will depend on the condition, size, framed, and how many are available.

Most are selling for under 100.00 and many for 25 or less.
Then there is the problem of shipping if you go with eBay.

maybe the true value is much less than you thought and you might check out local shops to see if they would be interested.

From what I am seeing it is between $60.00 and $250.00. Also if you do have to ship be sure to find a piece of plexiglass to go on either side of the painting. Would be a real shame to have a the poked thru the painting itself.

Can anyone advise regarding a very large print by Thomas Kinkade, using his Girrard signature? It is a Victorian beach scene with both red and blue striped tents, sailboats, sidewalk and wooden, dining-room style chairs in the sand on the left, lots of white buildings upper left. Several flags wave on a flagpole. It's similar to Summertime Resort. Thanks!
