As planned Saturday I did make a 9 hour round trip to go pick up a nice collection.  This is a collection from a family I've been working with for some time so it's tying up loose ends and closing out a consignment.  I don't have an estimate on when I'll be getting that collection back out for sale as...Read More

Last night was AOL crossover for our troop.  Six Scouts joined our troop from the Cub Scout pack and were welcomed on the other side of the bridge.  I believe we will get a big influx of parents and committee members as well which will be a welcome addition.  These new Scouts are now in the Otter patrol and will...Read More

Yesterday I went live on Facebook to sell the next batch of 100+ flaps from a large collection that I've been running through the Comment Sold system.  If you missed it no worries all of the items are now available on www.ScoutPatchLive.com just click on "shop all items". Tomorrow I'm going to spend the bulk of the day driving to go pick...Read More

Now comes the blitz!  Last night at the Blue & Gold Banquet for the host pack I implored the parents to do the #1 thing they could to help the event - show up! Thursday night I am visiting the South Charlotte Round Table to make an announcement and giveaway coffee mugs.  I've also have a friend passing out fliers...Read More

I talked with Roy More at the TOR in Indy about marketing efforts to get TORs to be successful.  I really think something that has helped us in Charlotte is having buy-in from the local units, lodge and council.  Two different units make money from the TOR and that gives us manpower and concessions to help the show run smooth. ...Read More

I've shared this before but if you want to be alerted the moment I go live on Facebook you can register at www.ScoutPatchLive.com.  Make sure you enable Facebook Messenger to be able and communicate because that's how the system can capture your comment of SOLD in the video. TOR tables for the Charlotte TOR are nearly sold out.  I sent some emails to...Read More

Here is what's ironic about this collection.  The guy went to the 1965 NOAC from a small lodge out in CA.  He traded for about 25 OA flaps and in the end doesn't have any flaps from his original lodge left.  But his own lodge flaps decades later would be worth a whole lot more than the common issues he...Read More

I had a nice chat with Roy More who shared one reason that the Indy TOR has been so successful over the years.  It's geography!  Being in a central spot in the old Region 7 there are multiple metropolitan areas within a reasonable drive to this event.  With tables that start at $22 for early registration it's a good value with a...Read More

This TOR is one of the best every year. I would not drive all this way and use up all my brownie points with my wife if it wasn't worth it.  There are over 200 tables and it's run by a squad of volunteers.  They run a live and silent auction plus a set of yard sale tables. I am...Read More

Over 400 people have registered for my live video sales and I'm happy to announce the next one is launching at 1 PM Eastern today.  I've already got everything loaded and ready so there won't be any hiccups.  If you want to watch live you can find the video in the Scout Patch Collectors Facebook Group or in my page for Scouting...Read More

I have to credit Matt Delk (back row right) with setting up this picture.  He thought it would be funny to get all the patch hounds at the meeting together.  We were missing Brad Hutto who had already hit the road.  On the front row are Greg McDaniel, Tripp Clark, Hunter Hackett and Bill Loeble.  Every one in the picture...Read More

I've been in the same location for 2 years now.  It has served me well and it only took me a year to properly move in. :)  Last year I got everything kinda containerized and sorted so at least now I know where things are.  The new location will give me some space to grow and especially a room to...Read More

The collection I'm selling has many flaps from the 1970s and early 80s.  Last night I offered up many S1 issues that are pre-fdl issues.  The best patch I featured was an unusually tough flap from Lodge 40 which sold not long after I posted it for $150. Looking ahead to next week I am traveling to the Crossroads of...Read More

I actually have my first podcast interview scheduled this week!  It's only been since Feb of 2019 that I published a podcast.  I am set to interview Rick Stewart this week on the topic of Scouting museums.  I will hopefully have the audio processed and get the podcast publish before the Friday Newsletter.  I also talked to Mike McAdams about an interview...Read More

During my tour I got to see the different rooms where they make some of the products that are sold in the BSA catalog.  One of the coolest things is that some of the sales reps gave me items to put in the silent auction.  One of these was a prototype 2019 WSJ blanket.  I also got two Scout Gnomes...Read More
