That or selling my Batman I line.
I get there, buy the set, and she says that she is also selling a few other sets including a Cafe Corner for basically MSRP. I say, well, let me think about it, can you check if you have a manual or box. I just remember thinking, I've really got to get home before my wife kills me because I'm late because I'm buying Lego!
Needless to say, by the time I realized my error an hour later, I texted her an hour and it was sold!
So dumb. Like I was going to open the first one?
I did also trade a White Boba poly bag for a set of Simpsons S2 as I couldn't find them near me at the time ...
But then the opposite of it, selling off the figures from the clone trooper battle set and forgetting about the parts. Then realising I had 20x those white skis for cafe corner ...
Sellers remourse kicks in a few months later and I find myself in the market looking to rebuy something I just sold.
It's the worst. Those purchases are always tainted with the stench of shame.
Wouldn't be so bad, but when we moved to San Diego about *four* years ago, I started browsing through the local Lego store.
Had the chance to get Haunted House, Town Hall, Grand Emporium, Robie House, and Farnsworth House for normal prices. Actually remember paying attention to the Haunted House and thinking how cool it was.
Paid much more later on for both sets.
My philosophy changed after that to "if you're sure you want it, just get it." Those were the two I knew I wanted, but hesitated for some reason.
On a side note and I'm amazed at the price of #6866. I've not looked in the SH stash from 2012 for a long time but there must be a few in there.
