Bricks & Minifigs started as a dream in 2003 when David knew there was a better way to buy, sell, and trade LEGO® items. He started selling online and before long, his business was gaining notoriety in the Oregon and Washington LEGO® market. Online shipments were going out worldwide and local business was booming.
In 2008, David had seen an advertisement for a large collection of LEGO® sets for sale. Unbeknownst to David, another LEGO® reseller had already made arrangements to buy the collection and had arrived ten minutes earlier. David had just met the person who would help him transform Bricks & Minifigs forever by bringing a lifetime of retail to his years of LEGO® knowledge and experience. That man was John.
John had recently left his management job at Tiffany & Co., and was looking for a change of direction. He had been buying and selling LEGO® recreationally, but much of the LEGO® world was still a mystery to him.
In 2008, John responded to that same advertisement. When David entered the room, the two found themselves negotiating not only for a treasure trove of LEGO® sets, but they were forming the beginning of a fantastic business partnership.
Combining John’s retail experience with David’s LEGO® market expertise, they designed their plan to create the largest chain of aftermarket LEGO® stores. John had been running a small cake supply shop and agreed that he would carve out a section of the store to start selling LEGO®. It wasn’t long before David realized his dreams, and opened the first Bricks & Minifigs store in Battle Ground, Washington. John quickly followed suit, clearing out the cake supplies and opening the second Bricks & Minifigs store in Canby, Oregon.
In 2011, they had established a third location and formed the Bricks & Minifigs franchise known as BAM Frachising. Now it’s your opportunity to carry on their tradition of friendliness, creativity, and fun with your own Bricks & Minifigs store.
