Having just sold a ton of Tenyo I am amazed at the Tenyo values in the market place. Not the high cost of some items, but the relative value of the pieces. When I began collecting, Crystal Cleaver was the 'bees knees' Smile Plus it was THE hottest and favorite item of Tenyos entire line, and in fact still consistently shows up on everyone's favorite Tenyo list. However, you can buy a Brand new in box Crystal Cleaver for $25ish (including shipping) on the auction site; The thing that rattles my brain is that a Used Credit Slasher sold for $288, a Used Mobile Illusion $165, a Used Black Hole $110, a Used Matchsticks $81, a Used Matchbook $80, a Used Mirror Mate $80 + a ton more of examples of stuff that 'I think' got little attention when they came out.
We talk a lot about value here, and this is simply an observation, nothing more, & I just find it simply so interesting!


PS- By the way, I grew up in Brooklyn NY, is gobsmacked one word or two?? And what the heck does it mean, gob smacked?? What's a GOB?
Cheers, I mean Fuggedaboutit

Lol. One word. British origins. Means flabbergasted. Gob means mouth. Always found the word entertaining.

What does "flabber" mean?
