Over the 4th of July holiday I have been doing a lot of dis-assembly and sorting. I forget how tedious doing this can be. It always takes far longer to take things apart and put them away than it does to build them! In the process I have found a few things that I am on the fence about taking apart but also found many things that there really is no reason to keep together any longer. I’ve also tried to reconstruct a lot of sets. I’ve probably reassembled 50 sets over the past three days.
Why am I doing this? I am gearing up for a big purge. I’ve talked about doing this for a few years and I finally am getting serious about it. It is time for 90% of this stuff to go – I don’t build much any more and we need the space my LEGO collection is taking up. How am I going to part with it? I will likely hold a LEGO “yard sale” of sorts first and let the local NCLUG and NCLTC people have first crack at it. After that, whatever is left, which I hope isn’t much, will go on BrickLink I guess. Likely as bulk lots.
