TIME TO GET SOME CLOTH LISTED

I have been focusing my own efforts the last few days on getting some fresh listings up on eBay. Monday I launched about 150 new OA flaps up on my store at fixed price. Many of these were old clothback pre-fdl issues. I’ve also launched a round of 80+ auctions including a lot of Philmont and World Jamboree issues.

I know a dealer in the hobby that is looking to move most of his trade-o-ree stock in one big deal to scale back a bit. If you are in the market for making a five figure investment in a lot of cloth send me an email and I’ll share his information.

I’ve been asked by the youth in charge of my lodge’s upcoming fellowship to teach a patch history class during the afternoon. I’ve done SHF SEPT 30something similar over the years and I’m trying to think of a different spin this time. I’ve already decided that T-shirts will be part of the story. Like a lot of lodges we make T-shirts for events probably 2-3 times a year and they are also part of telling the history of the lodge.

I talked to a fellow collector yesterday from Alabama and he complimented me on the CarolinaOA.com project. He noted that there is a similar project now in Pennsylvania and it could be a model for other areas. It’s funny how the hobby started with these regional groups cataloging everything and then it went to a national project. Is the pendulum swinging back?

I need one more sale today in my ScoutPatchHQ.com store to meet my goal for the month. I don’t know if you’ve visited in a while but I’ve got over 5,000 items listed including lots of OA as you can see below.

I don’t think I’ll have any new videos or other content rolling out this week. I need some time to focus on getting cloth out the door but I’ve got several ideas in the works.
