I got an e-mail from my Dad the other day asking if I knew where he could find a 4886 Building Bonanza set for him. He has a LEGO Train running around his Christmas tree and wanted to add to it. Shop at Home was sold out. Since my parents live fairly close to Tyson’s Corner, I first called there – no luck! After calling a couple more of the LEGO stores I quickly learned that Building Bonanza was a pretty popular item this year – it was sold out everywhere.
I then put out an e-mail to some of my ILTCO co-horts and Steve Barile was able to put his hands on one for me and get it shipped to Virginia before Christmas! Thanks Steve! My Dad will be thrilled.
