LEGO fanatics, rejoice! There’s a BrickResales event on the way and they want you to go along and join in for a morning of brick-hunting fun!
If you’ve been to one of their events before, you’ll know they are magnets for LEGO nerds who love nothing more than the joy of getting their hands into the dozens and dozens of huge tubs of preloved LEGO to find those much-needed bricks and parts. You never know, there are always hidden gems to be found and every event presents a completely different range of preloved LEGO because they receive new stock every week.
As well as potentially uncovering pieces of unique/vintage/hard-to-find LEGO gold, they guarantee you’ll enjoy excited conversations with other likeminded LEGOnians while digging through the LEGO tubs. There’s also Duplo galore!
For the newbies & visitors, BrickResales events are generally all about getting their hands on those much-needed LEGO parts. But for us, BrickResales events are an important vehicle to help them scratch a philanthropic itch and donate money to those most in need in our local community. They are truly grateful for your support of BrickResales and love to give back, to continue the flow of gratitude. Did you know that BrickResales has donated in excess of $50,000 to needy not-for-profits and other community groups? They proudly support RizeUp Australia at each event, but have also donated to various Scout groups, 120 Homestead and various schools & chaplaincy programs.
So, when you attend their events and drop at least a gold coin in the bucket at the door, you are helping them help others – and you get to build on your LEGO collection in a fun and cost-effective way. Win, win!
Take your parts lists or head along and see what they have for sale. You simply pay for your LEGO by weight (just $5 per 100g). Easy.
At every event, they see loads of kids having a whale of a time. Parents: Give your kids a budget and let them go crazy, picking their own selection of parts. They’ll also LOVE the Make-Your-Own-Minifigures section where they can build their own “Sigfig” (that’s LEGOspeak for a Minifigure that looks just like themselves!) or they can choose from a huge selection of pre-built Minifigures on sale at just three for $10.
The early bird definitely catches the LEGO worm at the sales events so make sure you go early!
