Before the Girl Scouts got here I had time to continue prepping and pricing things for the TOR this weekend in North Carolina. I priced items from my last collection pick-up and put together a notebook of stuff from the host lodge Occoneechee 104. All this has to end tomorrow when we meet back up with my wife at the...Read More

I spoke on the phone last night to a gentleman who ended up with his father-in-law's collection and was looking for suggestions on what to do. The sad part is he described how his wife's dad could pick up any patch or item in the collection and tell you a story about it. We lose so much of our institutional...Read More

For some reason I've had my best month ever so far this month in my antique mall booth. I don't know if its people driving through on vacation or maybe just a little Jamboree buzz. Either way it's got me encouraged to head out there this morning and look for any spare room that I can add some more. They...Read More

This past Friday I spent the bulk of the day in my antique mall booth adding lots of fresh inventory. One of those things was TOR style black boxes that pull out from a table.

It's hard to believe that in less than two weeks I'll be spending the weekend at a TOR. The Occoneechee TOR is held at Camp Durant near Carthage, NC. One of the cool things is the lodge cook team does all the meal prep and eating feels like being we are at a fellowship. Literally everything stops for about 1/2...Read More

I just got home from taking this 1 foot tall tub of mailings to the PO. I think there are over 100 orders in here which might be the peak for me. Now two weeks out my sales have crested and I am seeing lots of regular JSPs end with no bids. I'm going to let the horses run the...Read More

With all this Jamboree focus I've been neglecting the thousands of other items in my eBay store. So to help stir the pot there I'm running a big sale in my largest category with over 2,000 OA flaps and issues on sale this week. This week I'm finally getting back into the studio and recording an interview for my podcast....Read More

As I go to press I have 1243 live auctions on 2017 Jamboree stuff. Late Friday night I crossed the finish line and got everything listed that I traded for at the event. Minus a few things I'm keeping for myself this is all of it. Literally Friday night I was so blurry eyed I got my wife to help...Read More
