Received an invitation from LEGO to an exclusive holiday shopping event at the local LEGO store. The event is by invitation only and RSVP is required. Invited LEGO VIP member can attend along with a guest on November 23rd, 2013 for an hour before the store opens.
The fine print reads:
“One transaction per person will be permitted, with a spending limit of $5000.00 before discounts are applied. This event is open to individual shoppers only who are purchasing products for personal use. Attendees may not purchase more than five (5) of any single LEGO set or product and Holiday exclusives are limited to one per person. Additional restrictions may apply and vary by store, see a Store Associate for details…”
The December 2013 store calendar is now available. The December freebies are a bit anemic. Noteworthy is the free LEGO exclusive poster with any of The Hobbit purchases.
Also, the holiday baubles and two of the Christmas theme polybags are now available.

The first snow came unexpectedly a couple of days ago as it was unseasonably early. With that, the Holiday Season is just around the corner.
The wife fittingly built this as her first LEGO set. Looking forward to build more LEGO with her =)
