Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter March 10, 2015

Ok as promised here is a picture of the smiling Girl Scouts from Scout Sunday. My girls are wearing the green vests in the middle. This week on Thursday or Friday we are going to have the girls wear their uniforms to school in honor of Scout anniversary week. I told one of the parents I wore my Boy Scout uniform in my 6th grade school picture so I’m all about showing off some Scout pride. We are going camping this weekend to a Girl Scout camp near the VA state line. Camp Graham here we come!

In Friday’s issue I had a picture of a patch I was looking for to fill a hole in my collection. I’m happy to report that a reader came through for me (again!) and that explorer adviser patch is on it’s way. It’s one patch at a time but I understand Johnny Cash once built a Cadillac that way.

Among the collections that I have on the warmer plate is one focused on OA conclave patches prior to the 1972 merger down to six regions. You can’t collect everything but if I did I’d be lining up some bids on these nice Region 5 pieces!

Since I’m into Air Scout and Air Explorer insignia I see how easily this can leak over into collecting Air Encampments. I’m sure there is a core group of collectors that try to pick those up when they can.

It’s been a slow month so far over on my off-eBay store at www.ScoutPatchHQ.com. You can still use coupon code 3215 at checkout to get 15% off for the rest of this month.

Later in the week I’m hoping to get some new OA listed up on eBay. My goal for today is to stay off Facebook and get some listing down.
