So yes we all have to start somewhere, buyers and sellers, but it is natural that you start small and gradually gain trust, rather than jump into big auctions straight away and expect a warm welcome.
I dont look at feedback score anymore it is getting pointless. People complain over silly things.
I do look at feedback left for others.
My best find ever was in 2009; a #10196 Creator Carousel, #10189 Taj Mahal, and #7784 The Batmobile UCE. I paid $370 for all three. Sold Taj Mahal for $500 a few weeks later to repay wife who had purchased lot on her credit card. Sold Batmobile a few years ago for nice profit. Haven't assembled or even opened box yet but never parting with carousel...lol.
#42000 Grand Prix car, 25% off in John Lewis clearance, worn box.
30% off all of these in a clearance sale in the Watford Lego store:
#21009 Farnsworth House
#40086 Easter Bunny (!)
#40085 Valentines Bear (!!)
Local Lego Store.
Picked up 42000 Technic Grand Prix Racer for 30% off, because the box had a 1.5 inch slice in it. < Not into the "collecting" for money thing here, You can give me a lego set in a trash bag, as long as all the pieces are there, I don't care...
Just a few scuff-marks on the box, and the price dropped $35
Came away with £75 worth of LEGO for £18. Best deal I've had in years, even if it's not for a set I was particularly anxious to get!
For $30. I could not believe it! All I could think was that it had to be some sort of mistake, as I built the set, and there was absolutely nothing wrong with it in any way.

the General Greivous starfighter was probably my favorite find. The best thing is, I got them all for free! thank goodness for having a brother that couldnt really care much about lego. Original boxes and all!
Was also digging around the attic and I found a tin filed with instructions from the old Mars Missions, Exo Force and castle sets. very excited to find the rest!
also word on the street is, my friend down the street has set #10179 (Ultimate Collectors Millennium Falcon) unopened and MISB wish me luck as I try to convince him to give it to me (he doesnt even like legos )
P.S. glad to be back!
