About

I am obsessed with LEGO. This blog captures and shares that obsession. I am particularly interested in the LEGO retail experience – what sets are on the market, how different retailers display them, etc. I was inspired by seeing photos of toy stores from the 1970s and 1980s over at PlaidStallions.com. Seeing a photo of a LEGO Store from even a few years back, filled with retired sets already makes me feel nostalgic!

I’m in my early 40s, have been a lifelong fan of LEGO, and live in the US. I came out of my “dark ages” in college when I found a castle set at a thrift shop, and then built up my collection again via yard sales and retail store sales. Nowadays I have a pretty serious collection that always threatens to overrun my living space. I am particularly fond of the modular series, Star Wars sets, and a lot of the Exclusive sets such as the Emerald Night. I tend to buy a lot of minifigs too. I don’t have that much time to build, and often have plans for MOCs that go unrealized.

Overall, I share my experience with LEGO here on this blog. All the photos I share are those I have taken.
