As the rest of the country waits for the promising effects of the economic stimulus, Bricklink sellers have long been enjoying their own stimulus in the growth of sales. Fueled by hot demands of collectors and brick addicts worldwide, sales keep getting bigger and bigger. Nowadays, sellers pack more and more into each order, which translates directly into larger profits. Indeed, when it comes down to the package, size does matter.
Nevertheless, as sellers lavish in their hedonistic trade, one must question how they manage to escape the guilty conscience of dealing addictive ABS in plastic baggies to bankrupt adult LEGO fans and even to underage kids and teenagers, who would gladly spend the last cent of their meager allowance on minifig accessories than on textbooks and school supplies. Ironically, this highly exploitative act is fully condoned by the government, so it can’t be that bad after all. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some big orders to attend to.
