This is much from my speciality, however what's a fair price to pay every pound, and additionally the best way for a fast profit?

Thanks

Here's the general dominion of thumb:

Pieces in set

Price

Divide price by pieces.

700 piece collection for $70 is $0.10 per brick. Which is a conventional price.

Anything under the starts obtaining into "good deal territory", the best sales friend will ever see around the holidays (not clearance) are 30% off, which would be $0.07/brick.

Thus, used I would want to pay less than 7 cents per brick.

A lb of Legos deserve to have approximately 300 pieces, depending on size. 150-300 is a good estimate. By price, that's $10-$20/lb relying on the dimension if you space talking 7 cent bricks.

To do a profit/get a an excellent value, you require bricks for fifty percent that. A great deal on offered bricks is about 1/5th come 1/6th of new price of $0.10, therefore $0.016 come $0.02 per brick. If you speak 2 cents by 225 bricks (splitting the difference), that's $4-$5/lb. I'd offer $40, yet be willing to go approximately $60.

Also aspect in your time in sorting.

Goodwill Outlet Shopper
As tiny as possible. When I discover them in ~ the Goodwill outlet they're about $1.50/lb, but that's a handful of piece at a time. My girlfriend bought 70lbs for $3/lb, and also she has actually been sorting them because that a year or therefore (bricklink, not mass lots).

My trouble is I will certainly play with the Lego rather of marketing them.
