I just opened my store (Blacker Bricks) this week and somehow I got one sale
on my first day. I know there are a lot of helpful people on Bricklink and I
wanted to know how to grow my store and spread word of it as best as possible.

Thanks guys,

Congrats on your first sale. Just speaking for myself; I buy sets when I can
find a deal or like the set myself and just started to slowly build it up
since I started my store. I follow a lot of LEGO related instagram pages that
post when sales happen and keep an eye on all the major LEGO retail sites pretty
much everyday.

Parting out sets does seem like a pretty good way to increase your inventory.
Thanks so much for the help, ManyMiniBricks!

Piggy backing off of the instagram note.
I suggest starting a Instagram account dedicated to your lego store.

When you list parts for sale or something cool lego related take a pic and post
to your account with a bunch of lego hashtags.

It's a fun way to engage with the community.

Hi Amar!


More inventory, and time. Keep in mind if everything you sell is new, lots of
other sellers have the same thing as you until some time passes.

I've been working on adding as large of a variety of parts as possible. Thanks

I'd like to, but what do you think is the best service to ship internationally?
Thanks calebfishn!

That is ridiculous... You know very well he would also need good ABS soil.
