I'm having a Bank Holiday sale this weekend - with 30% off everything!
£5 minimum order, no fees and postage at cost:
Cheers, Robin :-)
If any bricksetters would like to make an order I’d be happy to give you a coupon. Just shoot me a PM :)
When shopping on BL I'd love to make my efforts more pointed towards supporting the lovely folks here on Brickset, but I don't know who owns what store, who has a store, etc..
Some sellers have Brickowl stores too, if you want to track them, e.g. https://xsbricks.brickowl.com/
Also on BrickOwl, if you prefer it:
also not had a single brickowl order in at least a week possibly 2.
I had my largest order to date this weekend; 4,500+ parts in 285 lots!
They'll be heading off to a lovely buyer tomorrow!
Oh, and I also had my 713th order - which ironically wasn't at all Harry Potter related!
I'm getting closer and closer to the 250k parts. Another month or so and I'll reach that milestone. Unless big orders come through, which I'd totally be okay with :D
Speaking of orders, the numbers seem to be going back to normal after the June-July slump.
@KingAlanI - I pulled all of the parts on Monday. Fortunately it was a Bank Holiday, so I didn't have much else to do, and it was almost entirely three colours which made it easier to handle. I've invested quite a bit of time sorting all of my inventory by colour and part type, and that's really helped my processing efficiency.
And, yes, I was referring to the Gringott's vault. I've been re-reading all of the books in the last few months whilst I was eagerly awaiting the release of the new sets, and I'd almost forgotten how good they are :-)
Problem is one of the orders is unpaid and is from a new bricklink member with zero feedback. So now thinking I will be lucky to get paid before the parts arrive. A bit annoying, but only £7 so not too much of an expensive lesson to learn.
I have a pretty bug shame pile right now and I've promised myself I'll get that down and listed before buying too much more.
I must admit, I'm much better at buying sets for part out than I am at actually parting them out :)
@TheFew - It's a very good question!
As mentioned by @SprinkleOtter, adding new inventory usually helps but I don't think that there's any definite 'rules' to making a success of selling on Bricklink (or if they exist, I haven't found them!). However, my best advice would be to accept that they'll be peaks and lulls in sales, even if you account for seasonal fluctuations, and just keep working at it.
You seem to have a good range of stock, but here's a couple of thoughts:
It may also be time to increase the discount to 15%!
