Q: How did you get started on Summerfield's Toys?

When I was 14, I was looking for ways to earn money. One day when visiting my uncle, he explained eBay to me and how he found his niche of selling various antiques. I was fascinated, and eager to start. He supplied me with vintage postcards to sell. It took me a while to research and learn about the postcards and how to productively sell them, but I learned the process and started making some initial sales. However, I quickly recognized postcards weren't my passion, but I knew LEGO was. I picked out some LEGO Minifigures from my own collection to list and sell and in two months, I made $200. As a 14-year-old, this was more money than I’ve ever had!

My model although profitable, was not sustainable, I only had so many Minifigures I was willing to part with. Frustrated, I sat down with my dad, shouting “I wish I could find more LEGO to sell”.
