Right around the same time I discovered Brickset, I also found a local store near me called Bricks and Minifigs. It was founded in my home state of Oregon, but has spread all across the US. They even have their own website (which has tons of info if you want to know more). They only sell real Lego (no MB or knock-offs) and have hundreds of loose minifigures for sales. They mainly sell used sets, but have some NISB. They even do birthday parties!
So I was wondering if any of you fellow Bricksetters have been there and if you like it. Also, since it is a franchise and each one is different, I wanted to know what each one is like and what deals you have found there. I have been to 4 locations so far, 3 in Oregon and 1 in Washington. I find it very useful, even if many of the sets and minifigs are quite overpriced. They even buy and trade, so it comes in handy when I want to unload unwanted freebies. What do you guys think? May the force be with you when responding...
