Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter September 13, 2016

Tonight is the drawing in my first ever free sweepstakes giveaway. It’s not too late to enter your name if you haven’t already. Just follow this link and it asks for your name and email. At 11 PM EST the software will randomly pick a winner. Sounds like fun!

It’s a brave strategy to start a lot of 50 OA flaps and set the minimum bid at $9.99. But I like the roll the dice mentality that lets the bidding get rolling. When you see a listing with 20+ bids it is a natural attention getter. The bidding on that Abooikpaagun flap is also heating up – must be the affection for the cute totem.

Those of us who grew up in the 1980s (hello generation X) might be tempted to bid on the Smurfs patch. If you don’t go for that pop culture connection then the nice early Eagle medal might be more up your alley.

I don’t know that during the 2015-16 school year if I ran a single auction. This year I’ve turned things around and have been averaging 100 live auctions each week including some that are ending tonight on eBay. With one consignment I’m trying to get up 25 new listings per night and that is helping get me in a rhythm.
