Well, it seems his company made $140 million in 2000, so there's clearly money being made! As for the value of individual paintings, collectibles and so on, the worldcollectorsnet should be able to help you - there is a message board for talking about Kinkade too.

It is hard for me to be unabiased on this as I am an Artist and most of my Artist friends are NOT found of Thomas. We paint to make  some money but most of all from our hearts and the love of painting and to share our Art with the World. We need to make money to replenish our supplies , some of us to live but most of all the LOVE and appreciation of Art. Thomas has cheepened Art by putting it on everything from umbrellas to cups etc.  It is really hard to resell his work to anyone that loves and collects Art. Good luck.This is only my opinion.

Thomas Kinkade paintings are worthless except how much you like it. For example in the garden scene he painted a gazebo. The high edition numbers (thousands - US plus international editions and then each of the difference sizes) makes it less collectable. But then he stop there and paints the same scene over and over again. He just changes the position of the gazebo and different garden arrangements - but the same. They even have the same path and the same view of the water coming downstream. Then he floods ebay with the cheap prints of his paintings (not limited editions) This has makes it hard for buyers looking to buy one of the limited editions on the cheap be sure of what they are getting. This way people will only buy from his galleries in shopping malls.

If you really want to unload it - them make sure you also photograph the certificate and the back frame and provide lots of information.

You might get lucky and get back half of what you paid for it. When it comes to suckers there is one born every minute. You will probably get less though.  

Art is mostly subjective. People like what they like. A Thomas Kinkade is the same. You don't buy it as an investment. Most are like unknown stocks from small companies some will go up and some will go down. However if Thomas Kinkade were an investment it would be a Ponzi scheme.
