Nobody buys hippos. They eat too much and have excessive flatulence.
All sealed apart from damage to 60051 box, all for an average of £42 each..best deal I've had...
Listed as Free. I paid $100 as I hate to totally rip people off.
The box is missing its lid & there are no instructions, but hey can't grumble for 4 quid can you 😜👍
Not a huge bargain (£320), but been after one for a while. 100% complete in excellent clean condition. Very happy. Will ho nice with the Black Pearl and Queen Mary
How much of 6073 was there?
While sorting, I came across unmistakable portions of 10197 Fire Brigade. All told, I only need a couple of pieces to complete EN, and about $30 to complete FB, but in the meantime I have substituted parts to enable display.
My modular street is filling up, most of them have good discount stories, going back the last 8 months.
I haven't checked it yet to see if it is complete, the Ironman figure is missing and there was a Clonetrooper inside.
There were also some parts from the Elves set #41186 Azari & The Goblin Forest Escape in a small plastic bag.
Oh, and I paid the princely sum of........... £4, yes 4 quid again, (I did offer more but they said "No thank you, £4 will be fine").
My Lego darkness is becoming a little brighter. 😎
You really are killing it. From what I can see that's probably around £700 in the two sets together (and that's likely a low estimate depending on #6399's state of completeness) for only £8... I would definitely keep my eye on that shop and be making regular visits there O.o
Looks like we got:
There are a lot of people (maybe not the majority? maybe so?) who donate to charity shops simply to get rid of stuff they no longer want. Whether or not the charity shop makes money in any way is likely not even on their mind. It's a means of clearing house.
Perhaps I'm completely off base and that theory represents only a small fraction of the population which donates. Again, just a working theory...
As a second to @andhe, my local shops will mark a bag with 100 random pieces in it (various off-brand bricks) at $20+. They eventually stock up on 10-15 bags worth as no one is buying them, then they'll all just disappear from the shelf only to reappear a week or two later, bricks resorted into new bags.
same basic design as the Octan version from a previous cargo train, used Mrs Speedys vinyl cutter for the stickers
Some times there is no time to start checking the likes of eBay, etc to determine what an item is worth or what it sold for on the internet with a large backlog of stock with more being donated daily, they basically have to get it sold quickly to get more stock out onto the shop floor.
So, yes I got a couple of very good scores on the Lego monorail & the Hulkbuster but it is not just Lego that goes"for a song", recently on a Facebook reselling group a member said he found a watch in a charity shop that he paid £3.00 for and sold it for £150.00 as it turned out to be a special limited edition anniversary Mazda MX5 timepiece, so it is not only Lego, just imagine all the antiques, designer clothes, vintage & retro-tech, etc that gets donated because people just want to get rid of stuff.
