Overpriced BrickLink sellers to avoid

Some stores on BrickLink charge unreasonable prices for certain parts.  They may have large part inventories, thus seem to be a good match for your Want List.  But it's a trap!  Save money and time by adding these sellers to your Least Favorite Sellers list.  When having BrickLink find sellers for your Want List, select Exclude Disliked Stores to filter them out.
Post any other stores which are too expensive and thus should be avoided.

Store name - Seller name

Honestly, I'm nervous to post this list because it seems mean.  But whatever, these stores are charging too much and wasting our time spent avoiding them.

    Publicly calling out anyone is a rabbit hole we probably don’t want to go down. Doing so simply because you feel their prices are too high is honestly silly.  Service levels, availability and cost are each important factors to consumers in differing degrees.  An open and free market doesn’t need a soapbox.

    ^ Can I just post all of eBay and Wal-Mart marketplace?  And most of the non-retail Amazon sellers?

    Sure, so long as we steer clear of the under appreciated MySpace market and emporium.

    Agreed. There’s a couple of European BL sellers who also charge (a lot) more than almost everybody else, but compensate by also having almost any part you could desire in stock, and in large quantities.
    They’re not for everybody, but in some scenarios you will be cheaper off by ordering from them instead of 30 separate sellers, with postage costs obliterating any savings you might have made.

    PayMo and VenPal.

    I love me some cashpants, but I find they chafe.  Especially the coins.

    Luckily, LEGO makes it nearly impossible to get coins.

    I had a feeling that listing expensive sellers was a bad idea.  I am fairly new to BrickLink and didn't realize their prices were high until I spent a bunch of time comparing.  Perhaps the best we can do is advise people to check the prices of their orders carefully for extremes and check other sellers to compare.

    It is dangerous to publish lists of names accusing them of something when there is no checking of the information or right of reply. Any buyer can see the prices they are paying before ordering and can least favourite stores if they wish. 

    Looking at the price before ordering applies to any purchase on any site.
