But beyond being a mecca for LEGO aficionados, BrickResales is a thriving community where people come together to share their passion for LEGO. Judy Friedman, the Owner and Founder of BrickResales, describes it as more than just a business – it’s a place where connections are forged, ideas are born, and dreams take shape.

“We have people that come and pick their parts,” Judy says, “They might be building things from scratch that they have designed. They may be finishing off sets that they are looking for that missing piece, or they just might be collectors that just want lots of everything.”

Families, children, and LEGO enthusiasts flock to the showroom, especially during school holidays and weekends, to unleash their creativity. With complimentary building tables available, visitors can dive into their imagination and construct LEGO masterpieces on-site.

Judy enthuses, “We have a big part of our community who come along and build and also we do encourage people right from young ages – it doesn’t matter what skill level they are – to bring their displays in here and just, enjoy just sharing what they can do.”

What sets BrickResales apart is their commitment to fostering a sense of belonging and inclusivity. Judy and her team celebrate every builder, from young children crafting their first LEGO creations to seasoned enthusiasts showcasing intricate designs.

One of the most heart-warming aspects of BrickResales is their commitment to giving back to the community. Whether it’s supporting local schools, young entrepreneurs, or charitable organisations like RizeUp , Judy and her team prioritise making a positive impact beyond their business endeavours. While many people sell their pre-loved LEGO to BrickResales, some people prefer to donate. Judy uses sales of donated items as an opportunity to always give back.

She reveals, “We will always donate that money to RizeUp, which is our preferred charity.”

Reflecting on BrickResales’ journey, Judy emphasised the importance of community support and collaboration. While they’ve encountered challenges along the way, the unwavering support of their loyal customers and the broader LEGO community has fuelled their success. The BrickResales team, including Judy’s husband and Master builder Greg, are very active in local LEGO events, such as BrisBricks LEGO Fan Event.
