    Why do you need stuff actually exporting to Poland?

    The foreign supermarkets (Auchan, Carrefour, Tesco) sell a lot of sets. There's Smyk and Toys'R'Us. There are even what look like brand stores (but aren't) in the form of Top Toys which seem to sell absolutely everything, including the exclusives.

    Obviously I want re-selling them in competitive prices :) Just want to make business on it as everyone who export/import.

    It's not obvious.

    LEGO sets are actually well-priced in Poland when compared to the rest of Europe, which is why I asked the question. That wasn't the case a year ago but the exchange rate has shifted enough to swing the balance. In other words, on a like-for-like basis, you're better off buying locally.

    If you're thinking of the US (don't forget, this isn't a US site), that may be different. However, there never seem to be many Europeans buying from outside the EU because the additional hidden costs (import duty, VAT, postage) don't generally make it worth the savings.

    I suspect the OP is wanting to buy wholesale, bypassing the local LEGO distribution route.

    Don't we all?  If it was that easy, half of us would be doing it

    I find a couple of things about this thread interesting. Firstly everyone moans about resellers, then when one registers to ask advice, they help (although this may be due to poor description in the question). And secondly, that someone with so little knowledge of lego as to actually ask where to buy it from now wants to get into investing. Scary thought.

    I'm not sure everyone moans about resellers. Quite a few people here have sold a new set in the past.

    Plus resellers that don't know what they are doing can be useful, someone has to buy the duds!

    How much capital would one realistically need to start a small lego reselling business? I would think £20k ?
  • MattsWhatMattsWhat Studley, UKMember Posts: 1,643
    ^that depends how small a small lego reselling business is.. I'm going to list one brick on bricklink and hope for the best!

    This thought will give me a smirk for the rest of the morning :)

    i put my occasional unwanted sets on a local ebay-like site and on bricklink!
    not with the purpose to make some money!

    my purpose is to get a better overview of my ever expanding collection and to get rid of things i dont need anymore/dont like anymore.

    some sets look cool in the beginning/on the box but when u display them for a while they get old fast!

    You're forgetting the adage that says "if you're not with us, you must be against us".

    @AceCobra1 ;After having the 'Reseller Challenge' thread, it became apparent that it's not as much the size of initial investment ($10K, $20k, etc) but rather the speed & frequency of flipping that really was the main factor in turning profit. I forgot who the winner was, but their final result was beyond impressive.

    Also it would depend on what type of business you want to run and what kind of return you expect\need. If you want a shopfront, make a living and have an actual account with Lego it would run in to the tens of thousands of dollars. If its just online from home selling sets you find cheap or sets you keep until they retire then yeah it could be just a few hundred to start with.
