The danger I am falling into a little bit is trying to make sure everything is 100% the way I want it in the new space. I still have a few more days of work to get the shelving just right. The goal right now is to get the mounds of stuff off the floor and then over time I...Read More

I think they have taken an interesting approach to the logjam of cataloging the last 10 years of OA issues since the Blue Book effort wrapped up. It sounds like they have the architecture to grow the catalog out and add functions that would be very helpful to collectors including print on demand PDFs and potentially a needs list generator....Read More

I gambled this time and did not order all of the preorder items but instead figured I could trade for them. But with my early exit Saturday I didn't pick up any of that stuff. Looks like I need to put together a needs list and hunt a few things down. I took a panoramic picture Friday night of the...Read More

Yesterday I got 1700+ mostly OA flaps listed for sale on my website. These are ones that a lister I hired has been working on for a few months and it's great for me as a seller to be able to push the button and put them up for sale. One of the things I love to do at...Read More

I got a small box of patches in the mail yesterday from Lancaster, PA. Most of these were late 1950s - early 1960s. I quickly posted them for sale on my store at fixed price with free shipping. The collection has some OA, camp patches and council patches. This is what I'm up against today. I'm going to the new...Read More

I would say my favorite thing about the museum was that there was a lot of text on the walls to tell the story. So you didn't have to flip through a book or go hunting for the key dates and events in the history of the councils and camps. It was typed up in letter size frames hanging on...Read More

Already the move has paid dividends. I found a patch that someone offered me $650 for (was MIA) and I've been able to put my hands on some things to take for patch trading this weekend at Camp Cherokee for the SR7B Conclave. I still have some shelving to build next week and a whole lot of sorting to do....Read More

This is a picture from inside the new warehouse space when we got started yesterday. These boxes were things I had at the Charlotte TOR. By the end of the week I hope the shelving is up and all these boxes have a new home vertical on a shelf and off the floor. That might be a small miracle but...Read More
