Best Dixie Fellowship Auctions on eBay

Many Dixie collectors were keeping their eyes on the auction featuring the rare 1973 Dixie neckerchief to see if she would hold her value. Let’s just say the question was answered in the affirmative. This n/c has a neat story for collectors. In 1973 the host lodge was pretty tight with their ordering of memorabilia. Specifically, they only ordered enough neckerchiefs to fill the demand for preorders that were received prior to the event. Since many collectors were used to being able to go up to the trading post and buy memorabilia during the event – this created a problem. In my home lodge of Santee the story goes that less than 5 were preordered for the entire lodge contingent. So nearly 40 years later this is one of the hardest n/c issues from the Dixie to dig up. I also want to comment on the 1989 Dixie set that sold recently. I bid $200 myself and got topped off by another collector. At one time I would have thought the 1989 Awards Patch (white border) was worth $200 but maybe this one slipped under the radar or Dixie stuff is still a depressed market.

So wait. Does that mean the host lodge ordered custom embroidered neckerchiefs for each lodge in 1973? And the Tsali S23 leads me to believe that lodges have a tradition of creating a conclave contingent delegate flap each year? That really sounds like overkill on the patch production front. Do the Dixie lodges really make that much stuff for each year’s conclave?

No, I think it means the host lodge ordered the conclave merch in 1973–same neckerchief for all lodges, the totem on the n/c is the host lodge. But in some lodges (e.g. Santee) so few folks pre-ordered that it was really hard to get hands on one.

Yes they do make that kind of crap for Dixie each year. It used to be a couple lodges making a special dixie flap for the delegation. Now its turned into all lodges making at least two issues for each Dixie. It is ridiculous!
