Monday I spent the better part of the day working in my antique mall booth. Then the darndest thing happened. Two teenage girls spent about an hour in my booth giggling and going through the shirts and dollar patches.

It's not very often that as an eBay seller you come across things that never recorded a sale all those years that John Pannell was tracking things on his OA images website.

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...Read More

Can you sell an entire collection in one swing using a Facebook album? I've been playing with different strategies this week and one I'm trying out is selling a big Kentucky Boy Scout collection as a whole piece. There are 54 pictures in the album and over 200 items in the collection. I'm taking offers so let me know if...Read More
