Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter May 9, 2017

Have you ever had three Scouting weekends in a row and on the other side of that just peace and quiet? Being an active leader cuts into my TOR travels. I would love to hit Alabama next weekend and Chicago at the end of the month but I think my family needs some calm.

Next week should be fun. I’m going to reel in two collections that I’ve been looking at for over a month. One of them the family is making a trip to Charlotte to bring to me. The other I’ll be driving to get a nice collection in North Carolina. When your doing this eBay thing as a full time business you gotta keep chasing the next deal.

I’m breaking up a “collection” that I’ve been holding onto for more than 25 years. Back in the late 1980s I started holding back five each of my lodges fellowship patches to just sit on (maybe hoarding?). So from 1989-2017 I have 5 each in an old briefcase not quite ageing like fine wine. But going into this summer I’m ready to crack it open and just keep 1 dupe collection (why I don’t know) and I’ll be making all the others available for sale.

Every day I’m adding items to the eBay store including over 3-dozen auctions that got launched last night. My next group is the Kentucky collection that I offered as one big group without a taker. Probably tomorrow I’ll start turning that into several auctions to see what I can sell it for going that route.
