Shout out to a store at Bricklink

I buy most of my Legos these days second-hand from a huge online market called BrickLink. People post their inventories for sale, and you can order from all of these people. BrickLink manages all of it.

Well, one store (so far) is a generous donor in the Buy Me a Lego campaign, and I wish to mention them specifically.

Front Range Lego, has chipped in with a great donation of $5.00.

Not an insignificant donations. If you need to get some Lego bricks on the cheap, go check them out.

Announcing Buy Me a Lego

So I’ve resorted to desperate measures. :)

I’ve started a small experiment/campaign to raise the cash for a Lego Millenium Falcon. But I am making it worth people’s while. Whoever donates gets a link from the page to their own site.

The way it works is:

* for 65 cents, I put a link to their blog on the site.

* for $2 I ALSO mention them on this blog.

* for $10 I will put up a banner ad.

Will it work? I think so. Links to sites are worth it. It can help boost traffic. This blog isn’t super-popular, but it’s growing larger and has quite a bit of traffic every day. I think the site I just setup will get dugg or slashdotted one of these days.

So head over to http://www.BuyMeALego.com and contribute! Thanks!

I just wanted to say thank you to Valerie and Don for their contribution to my Buy Me a Lego campaign. Their generous donation deserves a link to the web-site of a very interesting store. As an aspiring gourmet, I particularly enjoy the pantry section of the store. I’ve been meaning to look into some high-quality spice and herb sources on the Internet, since what we can find around here in DC is sadly lacking in quality.

My grandfather would have loved this store. He was an excellent amateur chef and had a nice collection of spices, oils, and other ingredients that came from stores like this.
