Hello all!! Ive been reading posts on the forum for a few months now, but have never posted anything. All you guys are really informative on all the deals out there, and everything else Legos, as I find myself checking the posts EVERDAY...lol. Thx alot to everyone who posts!
Let me start by introducing myself. Im a 33yrs old male father of 2....no wife, so I can buy all the legos i want, so long as i can afford it. I own a donut shop, and find myself spending all my profits on legos past few month...I buy legos almost on a daily basis. I'm pretty much like legoTexasfan...except that I think he's got a lil bigger problem than i do. lol...Him and I would probably get along very well. I do have a really good source for buying legos that many of you out there, dont have....I'll tell u more about it later. Im more of an investor/reseller, as i have been hoarding some sets, in hopes of returns of 200% or more in a couple yrs! It sure is fun trying to obtain all these sets, with doing the least amount of damage to my wallet. All these big, expensive sets (10xxx) $100+ are awesome! I store them all in my office...also got a bunch of legos in my room and closet...always have some in my the car as well. lol
I find myself thinking about legos almost all day long! I'm a full blown legomanic! lol I'm always trying to tell people what a good investment legos are....wish i would have started a couple yrs earlier...who know how many cafe corners, green grocer, taj, etc. i would've had...then again, i dont think many of us knew they were going to triple in value in 2 yrs.! This is what i have gotten in about 4 months of work....went from no legos...to this: 27X 10210, 20X10197, 15X10214, 10X 10211, 10X 10231, 10X 10198, 13X 10194, 10X 10193, 10X 10199, 6X 10219, 4X 10218, 4X 10220, 3X 10212, etc. Also got a bunch of star wars, harry potter, city, etc. Sorry, not trying to brag...jus astonished at the size of my collection in the little time! I'll try to post some pics, but not too fun to look at, as i have ordered a bunch of boxes from ULine, and have them stored away (this is a great source to get good storage boxes of almost any size, at a good price!...ULine.com ..I recommend doing this, if your running out of room. It will maximize your storage space, and keep your legos mint! Let me know if anyone needs the box sizes that i use to store my collection. Last time i did inventory, i was a lil bit over $20,000 in retail price!...I prob spent only about half of that, $10,000 in cash, and alot of work to get all this!
