Setting up a Bricklink Store
I know that this has been a topic multiple times before but I'm thinking of starting a Bricklink store.
I've been doing my research across multiple websites/platforms etc. to see whether or not it is worthwhile. I am 17 years old (maybe a bit nieve even thinking about this) but I thought (like many people) that this could be a little extra cash to fund my Lego hobby.
I was in Symths Toys Superstores (Equivalent of Toys R Us but in Ireland) last week and they had a huge lego sale. There were great deals on the star wars stuff and I picked up as follows.
75119 Sergeant Jyn Erso for €10 I think
75120 K-2SO for €5
75121 Imperial Death Trooper for €15
75523 Scarif Storm Trooper for €10 I think
75524 Chirrut Imwe for €5
75525 Baze Malbus for €10
These were all great prices as they are usually €25 each.
When I got home I was thinking that buying some more of them would be a good idea to part out and maybe resell.
Now I know that this was a lucky time to find them at that price and they are probaly back up in price already but is it really worth it.
The like of Chirrut Imwe for €5 has I think over 150 pieces so how could you go wrong.
I guess I'm just trying to say, Is the hassle of buying the sets, parting them out and then selling them on for a few cent/euros at a time worth the effort or realistically how large does you inventory have to be or how much should you be aiming to invest at the start to buy inventory.
