Nerd Night: BrickCon 2016

Went to BrickCon 2016 in Seattle's Exhibition Center today, and talk about packed! This hermit and her little hermitses wore down pretty quickly. There was a lot of cool stuff to see and a lot of people to contend with. Cool thing? Everyone there had something in common; they love Legos!

Talent was in every corner...the replica of Multnomah Falls in Oregon was phenomenal, as was the Game of Thrones "Ice Wall." So many bricks and time and structural know-how--not to mention creativity--all of it fabulous. There were also boxes of Legos to buy, bricks in bulk, jewelry (see above) and t-shirts. There was a lot of other stuff, too. Into bricks and blocks? Worth a vista at $12 a ticket.

Yes, Please!

High on bricks and Mini Figs, we decided to stop in Bricks & Wheels in Factoria to check things out. What a cool store! The guys there buy old Legos and sell new and used bricks, including bulk and out of date Mini Figs. We wanted the Genie Girl so bad...but since I'd been throwing $20s around on plastic, I put my brakes on. It'll have to wait. But I know where I'll be visiting come Christmas.
