    When I look for pallet stores online, all I find are places that sell pallets :(

    Its a store that purchase large boxes of stuff loaded onto wooden pallets that have been returned to stores or overstocked items and then resales them at a cheaper price

    Like Big Lots for example

    Thanks for asking the direct version of the question, as opposed to my obtuse method :)

    Just picked up the Friends Central Perk set at Tesco of all places for £32.50. Can't see it listed online so maybe instore only?!

    I found #75263 at Walmart in the clearance aisle. Price was $7.49. The UPC had been removed, so it was an open box. I peeked inside and saw what appeared to be everything, so I bought it. It turned out to be complete, so I was happy with that.

    Not happy that someone took the UPC off and probably pasted it to a larger set to get it for $9.99.

    Does it count as a great find if it is a second #60052 Cargo Train you found in the back of a closet while cleaning that you don't remember buying? Asking for a friend.
    No, no.  I'm asking for a friend.

    I got these for $75 from Craigslist. 
    hidden side - beach buggy
    hidden side - subway
    hidden side - fairground
    hidden side - lighthouse 

    A bit of buyers remorse because I jumped at the opportunity but I kinda got the feeling these fell off a truck.

    Well, you know, it's just a used minifigure... nothing special... ;)

    I guess this counts as a find. Earlier last week I found a #5357 Largo Quatro Box at Savers for $5. It was in it's original tub and it turned out to be 100% complete. That pretty much doubled my Quatro collection.

    My little man who is 4 is about trains right now. He loves the High Speed Train 60051 and the Cargo Train 60052. He found some YouTube videos where people had more than a few carriages and has been saying he wants more. So I spent about a week looking for used 60051 sets. The prices were around $100 for a used set. I stumbled on the Brickset page of 60051 and it shows an Ebay listing which was $59 and no bids. I started to watch it and there were no bids. I was lucky enough to get it for that price! Now I can make 3 additional carriages for him for Easter

    ^  Was that complete?  Dang, amazing to find a listing like that with no bids and to get for that price.  Now if only I could nab a listing like that for the HE...

    Three different shops in £6 and £7 bags, with odd collection of other bits (no sets). There's a weird repetition of missing parts - and where are the heads? Why? All look to be virtually un-played with though, very strange. Also got a Greyback in one if the bags.
    last year i acquired a burrow set without molly or ginny (and also was tragically missing Bellatrix's hair). I think you got some of my extras ;) Also there is literally no rhyme or reason to what you get in Lego used bulk hauls XD

    My brother found Thanos: Ultimate Battle and Thor's Weapon Quest together lightly used on Ebay for $60... and Thanos had a complete Infinity Gauntlet!

    While waiting for my husband waiting to collect his prescription, I popped into nearby charity shop and found some reasonably priced boxes and bags of Lego. There was a fair amount of Mega Bloks, but some interesting sets and minifigures, and one box had a load of old Lego, including some Vintage Space.
    that Obi Wan and Ninjago Fangpyre snake guy with two heads are good finds. I also like all those classic printed bricks!

    Second-hand shops seem to run the gamut when it comes to pricing Lego, even in the same shop. I've seen bags with old, dirty bricks and loads of other stuff mixed in (or just bags with clone bricks) at the same price I just (last day before it closed for corona) bought #42077 Rally Car for (€15, complete with instructions, I just had to replace a couple of damaged pins). And then I found a bag which cost €2.50 with four complete Chima Speedorz sets, also with instructions: #70140 Stinger Duel, #70138 Web Dash, #70137 Bat Strike and #70136 Banana Bash. Or a boxed #41321 Snow Resort Off-Roader for €1.50, I do wonder how they make up their pricing?

    The big boxes were £10 each, Except the box that had sets individually bagged, they were £2 each, and the carrier bags were £8 each. We have found over 20 sets, including an Airport set, and quite a few Star Wars sets, with figures too (mostly). A lot of the old stuff is broken, and will be thrown. Interestingly, there was a yellow base plate that turned out to be marked KUP which I found references to Tupperware. I've never heard of Tupperware Lego!!

    @Adelec The logo says KLIP, which was a Lego clone made by a French company called Jouef. They're now part of Hornby I believe.
