HIS STORY

Hi.

 

My name is Eric. I'm 10 years old and I am very excited to welcome you to my first real shop!

 

I have loved LEGO®s since I was, like, 2, and I started collecting them early on. I wanted to find a way to share what I had so I asked my parents if maybe I could also trade and sell.

 

My mom was nice and let me borrow one of her tables so that I could set up at a sidewalk sale. I put everything together with my dad's help, too, and started my business.

 

I saved enough money to open a real shop by selling at markets, sidewalk sales, and doing business with family and friends.

 

Please come and see me, I'd be happy to meet you!

 

The location is at 3901 N. 27th Street in Tacoma, WA.

OUR TEAM

With the help of my parents, Antonio and Luisa, I have a team.

 

My dad helps me a lot with all the computer stuff and usually gives me good ideas and planning.

 

My mom helps me a lot with driving and being at the shop when I can't (especially when I'm in school).
