This past Friday I spent the bulk of the day in my antique mall booth adding lots of fresh inventory. One of those things was TOR style black boxes that pull out from a table. These are mostly filled with CSPs, rank & position patches and other miscellaneous patches that aren't too valuable. It's a shot in the dark to...Read More

It's hard to believe that in less than two weeks I'll be spending the weekend at a TOR. The Occoneechee TOR is held at Camp Durant near Carthage, NC. One of the cool things is the lodge cook team does all the meal prep and eating feels like being we are at a fellowship. Literally everything stops for about 1/2...Read More

I just got home from taking this 1 foot tall tub of mailings to the PO. I think there are over 100 orders in here which might be the peak for me. Now two weeks out my sales have crested and I am seeing lots of regular JSPs end with no bids. I'm going to let the horses run the...Read More

Minus a few things I'm keeping for myself this is all of it. Literally Friday night I was so blurry eyed I got my wife to help...Read More

One of the fun things I was trading at the Jamboree was old garrison style hats. I even had one of the red berets on my blanket. The Scouts who traded me for those were so excited it was almost funny. The Scout that got the red beret was about to give me a hug and said I made his...Read More

There are still plenty of vintage items up for bids on eBay despite the 600 pound gorilla in the category. Who knows this might be a good time to scoop up some old stuff since everyone is a little distracted by Jambo stuff. Todd Rogers went ahead and created a new Facebook Group just for the 2018 NOAC. These topical...Read More

While many of us have been paying attention the National Jamboree there is another big International event happening right now. In Iceland several thousand Scouts are attending the World Rover Moot. Rover Scouts never caught on too well in the USA but these are your 18-25 year old Scouters so it's a different kinda animal. I have enjoyed seeing updates...Read More
