    At Half Price Books in Roseville, MN they have some vintage LEGO: a few sets with instructions, occasionally with boxes, and various sizes of loose parts: some sorted by color, some just random. Saturday I found a bag of random parts for $7.99... with a 3778 Cypress Tree! It's mine now. It's only slightly chewed, probably by a cat.

    Hmm been awhile since i visited there. We'd often have a Friday dinner at the Shoreview Red Robin, then pop into HPB Roseville to see what's new.

    I've been having an awesome week for finds!  It kinda makes up for the months/years of drought where I haven't found anything too outstanding.   In addition to the lot I mentioned a couple of posts ago I was found the following lot from another seller this week.

    #6392 #6368 and #611-2

    All the parts are in excellent, like new condition and the sets came with instructions and boxes.  The #6392 box has a couple of tears on one side,but still has the insert tray that shows off a few of the specialized arts (I loved that feature in the sets from this era).  The other 2 boxes are mint.

    The only catch was these were just over a 2 hour drive away, but well worth it.

    Total cost:
    4 1/2 hours driving (round trip),
    $40 CDN for gas
    And an unbelievable $20CDN for all 3 sets together!

    Depends on how much he usually spends on takeout.

    My wife found most of a 2012 Quinjet in like-new condition at a garage sale this morning for $3. No figures but a nice pile of parts for that little.
    If I already didn't have one that's been unbuilt since 2012, I'd be making an offer...

    ^best part is they literally live across the street from the town library which collects donations for their lego club (or did in the past at least)

    It was probably deliberately thrown in the trash, as opposed to being upcycled. Like, the kid did something awful and this was their punishment.

    That’s exactly what I was thinking. 😳

    I can just imagine the mother/father/kid sneaking out later to bring it back in and just being like 'oh crap....'
    First thing I thought was "They would surely get out all the bags and put the empty box in the trash, rather than risk it all going missing" but that might be optimistic...

    Not exactly a great find, but bought a small used set from on Ebay and got this lot complete in the same box for some reason, plus another 30 or so spare pieces.

     
    It looks to me like your Lone Ranger has gone rogue and is trying to sleigh-jack Santa Clause...

    Found #2129 Dragster and a bunch of miscellaneous parts for $2.99 at Savers. The elastic for the dragster seems to have lost its stretch, barely moves the car, but still a cute little build.

    Picked up #21035 Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum brand spankin' new for $50 the other day. A local seller had a couple sealed copies he got discounted to flip. I've recently developed an Architecture interest, especially in NY buildings, so this was a good find for me.

    Nice set!  But I enjoyed all the FLW sets.
