We haven’t posted in quite awhile, as we were very busy building up our BrickLink and BrickOwl stores, but we are finally ready to start focusing big time on live events! While we will still keep our BrickLink and BrickOwl stores open and continuously growing, we have spent the last month buying a TON of supplies and inventory specifically for use at live events! We now have a full gridwall booth setup, which will allow us to fit more than three times as much inventory in the same booth, and we have a ton of new sets, minifigures, jewelry, and more to fill up that space!
Our new booth setup will be revealed at the Lexington Comic Con this coming March, which we have already registered for. We will be offering a sneak peak at the Irvine, KY Courthouse this October 8, where we will be attending a local craft fair.
We are also in talks with local retailers to allow us to set up our LEGO vending machines. We have approval from one store already, and will be placing a 3-head bulk vending machine at that location in mid-October. The vending machine has three sections: a 25-cent “Accessories” machine that dispenses 1″ capsules containing an accessory, micro-build, or LEGO micro-figure; a 50-cent LEGO Friends themed machine that dispenses LEGO jewelry, Friends minifigures and mini-builds, and a 75-cent “Ultimate” machine that dispenses minifigures, figure packs, and mini-builds. Once the machine is set up and ready to go, we will let everyone know which business it is located in so you can visit, shop at an excellent local Irvine, KY business, and get a few awesome LEGO pieces at the same time!
Big things are happening for Scooter’s Bricks–we can’t wait to show you what all we have in store!
