Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter May 16, 2017

Can you keep a secret? The collection included over 300 mugs. That’s grounds for divorce so I got smart and had the guy meet me in the parking lot of my storage unit in Charlotte. After the deal was done the books, coffee mugs and Boy’s Life magazines went into the storage unit (hopefully never to be seen by my wife!). Geez just last night at our Den meeting I gave all parents BSA coffee mugs as thank you gifts trying to get rid of some.

The patches, neckerchiefs, slides and interesting pieces that might need to go in my antique mall booth came home with me. The coolest thing that I’ll keep was a wooden patch briefcase that I think I saw in the catalog many years ago. There also might some merit badges and an Eagle medal that will fit nicely into my collection.

This week I’m reeling in another collection Thursday. This one I’ve got to jump in the car to go pick up in North Carolina. Luckily all the mugs in this collection can fit into one box. My goal is to get a lot of this new inventory turned around and use a lot of the 3D pieces to refresh my antique mall booth. The key to that being successful is putting new inventory in there every month so I need to get on that schedule.

My auctions ending soon include OA two-piece sets from several NOACs. I’ve got nearly 100 of these listed so even though it’s not a summer where those will be popular I hope I can find some new homes for them.
