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 =)

Just checked shop.lego.com and noticed that
customers are asked to call to check for availability for 10197 Fire Brigade. Perhaps an indication that it’s heading to retirement like the Hayabusa set.
Update: The set is listed as out of stock but available for purchase with a shipment date on 11/06/13.

This year’s LEGO holiday catalog came in the mail today. The cover features the new Winter Village Market (#10235, 1261 pcs). Unlike the fall catalog, no coupon is included =(
Barnes & Nobel is offering BOGO 50% over the Columbus Day weekend starting from Saturday, October 10th to Monday, October 14th. Valid both online and in-store.
Also, use “FRIENDNFAM” to get additional 20% per one item, one time use. (Some people are unable to use the 20% off on top of 50% off but it worked for me. I think the difference was that I purchased two different sets with the same value).
Happy Columbus Day!
