The Brick Box Australia

Post by shieldzee1 on Sat 10 Mar 2012, 7:48 am

Well have ever wonder what I have been up to well I'm happy to share why I have been away from the forums for so long.

Over the last 8 months I have been setting up my first Business called The Brick Box Australia what is a market stall at the Caboolture Country Markets just 45Km's north of Brisbane.

But this was not where it was started the first stall was at Maroochydore markets on the Sunshine Coast what I found was flop didn't make much more then the cost of the site fee each week so a month before Christmas last year we moved to the bigger Caboolture Country Markets.

I sell LEGO Minifigures and other LEGO parts what I do sell on my Bricklink store what is slowly growing each month with newer stock and gear for sale all the time.

My biggest seller is lucky dips costing $2 the kids always come back to try and find the Minifigures I put in as a bonus for them but its has LEGO bricks as the lesser prize for the kids to find what helps keep it going so I can get more Minifigures to put in.

My goal is to grow the business to a point I can open a store on the sunshine coast where I hope to open A big display center what is in the planning stage what will take me 12-15 months to build and will have 36m2 size LEGO layout display what hope become icon of the Sunshine Coast for all to see.

I mite only go once a month to the markets but mum keeps taking my stock along so I always have my stock at the markets so drop in and check it out.

For more info about my market stall check out my blog The Brick Box Australia Blog next market I will be there is the 18th of march so till then keep on building Adam.

Adam,

Good luck with your project; I hope it is a roaring success.

I'll have to drop up at some stage; where in Caboolture is the market?

I think it's at the historical village, just north of the centre of town.
