First time ever in a "bricks & mortar" Lego store....

Last weekend stopped off at Milton Keynes (on way back from Sheffield) and popped into the Lego store - never visited a real store before. Well when I say "popped" I mean I spent about 90 mins in there dribbling over all the lovely exclusive sets and generally embarrassing my family by my enthusiasm for all things in that store. Initially my wife agreed that the Lego towels were nice (the kids swim regularly), so purchased 2 of those along with a Halloween polybag set.
After further loitering and showing my wife some of the built models, I came away with the VW Camper, the Winter Toy Shop and a few minfigs (we all built our own).

The bonus is that I got double VIP points and 2 free exclusive xmas sets........Also dropped some hints on what would make a good xmas pressie for me.....we shall see!

Defo will be visiting Lego stores again, as you can't beat the hands on experience!

    LEGO stores are great.. the nearest one to be is about 40 minute.. the way I drive about 30 but I am kinda glad it is so far away or I would be broke.

    There is a Lego store only 6 miles from me, so I am in there once a month if not 2.

    about 3 miles from work, 15 from home. I'm in there 3-5 times per week

    hahah @gold682, I was the same the first time! Like a kid!

    That was the lego store in Westfield center London, I spent so much time ;)
    Since I have been back to this one and visited the Copenhaguen, Munchen and New York Manahattan ones thanks to my travels...I wish we had one in Sweden...
