Selling branded products differently

Here’s a shop that may inspire some new business/product ideas for an ecommerce business.

Chris McVeigh sells custom Lego sets of items like old computers, desks, video game consoles, and bonsai trees. Oh, and he does the insides of the computers too.

All the pieces are official Lego pieces; Chris’ creates sets of them for custom creations he’s designed. In addition to the lego blocks, customers pay for the convenience of getting the right pieces, and the service of figuring out what pieces are actually needed. Lots of ways this could be applied to other products.
