Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter October 3, 2017

As some of you may know the tradition of these campfire blankets goes way back. They are designed to be worn at night as an extra layer to keep you warm at a campfire. They are also a great way to display the badges that you’ve swapped for and to document your Scouting history. If you live in Canada, Europe, New Zealand or Australia these are probably the equivalent of the red wool jackets that are kinda ubiquitous for BSA adults. Ever since I spent the summer of 2000 working at a Scout camp outside Dover in England I’ve been hooked on them.

In the unboxing video I got in 3 flat rate boxes filled with uniforms. There was a wide variety including a wool shirt and a 1940s uniform with metal buttons. Those are likely headed for my antique mall but the campfire blanket may get used at our pack camping trip at the end of the month.

Another developing story from patch land is I visited two storage locations yesterday trying to nail down a solution to my overcrowding issue. I think I’ve settled on a 10×25 unit in a climate controlled facility but my wife wants to talk about it a little more. It’s always a good idea to have her blessing for I leap into things. Especially since the last time I got a storage unit I didn’t tell her for months.

I should have some new live auctions launching tonight including one that is going to knock the socks off some local collectors. Every once in a while when you take on consignments something really good comes in.
