A sea of dark grey, dark bluish grey, red, yellow and blue as far as the eye can see - it's the Sunshine Coast LEGO Sale and the LEGO has been washed and is now drying, awaiting your arrival next Saturday the 25 August.
The Sunshine Coast LEGO Sale is back, bigger and better than ever before and everybody is invited to come along and enjoy a morning of hands-on and hands-in, of all things LEGO. The very innovative concept of all things LEGO is brought to you by BrickResales, whose main aim is to connect like-minded people of all ages and expertise, through LEGO. BrickResales buy and sell preloved LEGO, allowing LEGO aficionados to escape into a world of creativity and imagination. LEGO is utilised in many educational facilities for rehabilitation purposes and to help people with disabilities - by bringing an enjoyable pastime to like-minded LEGO fans.
This is sure to be a morning to remember. For a gold coin donation - all donations go to RizeUp, a community-driven organisation of passionate men and women, dedicated to supporting the many families affected by domestic and family violence - LEGO devotees can buy as much or as little LEGO as they wish, to take home. A fabulously creative time for the children to get stuck in and have some fun, and at only $5 per 100g weight of LEGO (where else can one purchase LEGO so cheaply?) - children will love the LEGO scratch boxes, choosing their own bits 'n bobs to take home.

BrickResales don't always have time to pull all the sets apart, so you can buy sets, you can buy parts, you can buy parts of sets and in the process find heaps of LEGO treasures. There will also be new sets available, unopened and going for a song and for the littlies, DUPLO galore.
Make-Your-Own-Minifigures will be available at only $4 each, plus a massive selection of new and pre-loved Collectable Series Minifigures (CMF). FREE instruction booklets are available at every BrickResales LEGO sale, so look out for the tables full of books and make sure you take a couple home to help you on your LEGO adventuring way.
Unfortunately, there won't be a sausage sizzle or drinks for sale at this Sunshine Coast LEGO Sale, so please remember to bring your own water bottle - scratching through the LEGO is guaranteed to work up a thirst! The good news is that parking is totally FREE in the car park and cash or credit cards will be accepted for all LEGO purchases.
Read the very special thank you note from RizeUp to BrickResales for all the donations as a result of the LEGO sales:
"The fabulous team at BrickResales have been at it again. All of the gold coin donations given at the door to their events go directly to RizeUp - and then we are able to purchase all of the items we are low in... like a brand new kitchen, linen and bathroom items. These events are every single month and we reap the benefits every single month, which so far this year is thousands of dollars.... Word is from today's event that 'the bucket is very full again'. Excellent! Thanks BrickResales team and customers."
Get to the Sunshine Coast LEGO Sale early - if you snooze, you lose!
Sunshine Coast LEGO Sale is all about recycling preloved and unwanted LEGO, with funds raised going to a very worthy cause, RizeUp, who are dedicated to supporting many families affected by domestic and family violence. At the same time, by recycling thousands upon thousands of LEGO pieces, we are also helping to reduce our footprint on the planet - sounds like a total win-win to me! I'll see you at the Sunshine Coast LEGO Sale next Saturday!
