  Almost two years ago I posted on Facebook about an odd patch I had received in a collection from Texas. Thanks to Warren Kuhfeld I have the thread in the Scout Patch Collectors FB Group (sorry if you are not a member it won't let you read it!). This Jacket Patch might have been issued for the Dance Team but...Read More

  Following up from Tuesday you will remember that I drove to Atlanta to attend an eBay Open Studio event downtown that had employees and sellers networking and getting answers. I got to speak directly to members of five different eBay teams and get questions answered. One of these was a growth advisor who is a fellow Eagle Scout.  ...Read More

  Yesterday I stepped in a cow pie for the first time in my life. All this while visiting my daughter at college. One of the interesting things about Warren Wilson is that they have a working farm with about 300 acres including cattle, sheep and pigs. We got a great tour from the long time land director and saw...Read More

  How many of us have purchased a Boy Scout collection and gotten some military stuff mixed in there? Makes sense as many vets were Scouts or their fathers or uncles served and handed them down some cool stuff. I recently got a WWII German bayonet and trench knife in a collection. But yesterday I hit a home run.  ...Read More

  I have always been eager to share all the Scouting history that i have collected. Tonight I get to do that with some of the items I've been collecting since starting this hobby as a 14 year old. I'm taking my Camp Coker collection along with historical pictures to a reception being held in Florence, SC this evening.  ...Read More

  I spent part of the weekend at Camp Coker where Muscogee Lodge 116 held their Fall Inductions Weekend. It was good to see old friends and to witness over 40 Scouts and adults go through their Ordeal. The new lodge has settled in a calendar of alternating between the two camps and it was good to see some cheerful...Read More

  I have been going down the rabbit hole of eBay YouTube and trying to get ideas. To that end, on a live video, I chimed in and got a free month of the cross-posting service ListPerfectly. While the idea of posting Boy Scout stuff on other platforms like Etsy sounds tempting it's a road I've been down before.  ...Read More

  Last night I spent about 4 hours at the warehouse listening to my SC Gamecocks get their season back on the right foot while working on listing projects for this week. For those of you that know me patches and Gamecock football are two of my lifelong passions. I listened to the radio call over the Internet which is...Read More

  Here is one for you! An old Scout buddy messaged me and asked if I had a size medium Cub Scout shirt as his son was just joining. The same day a lady in North Dakota messaged me and asked if I would be interested in her son's old Cub uniform. I asked her what size? She answered medium...Read More

  This morning on the way into work I listened to the latest episode of the Scouting Memories podcast. Chris Brightwell from Alabama leads this project to share audio history of the Scouting movement. Today's episode focused on the 2023 Jamboree and got me to thinking back about my great Jamboree memories. Other episodes include some archived material from Terry Grove...Read More

  Guys who were Scouts of the baby boom generation sometimes have some really cool stuff in their collections that they probably didn't take on a camping trip. Yesterday I opened a box as soon as it arrived because I was anxious to see a pair of knives that were in the photographs shared with me. Boy was I surprised....Read More

  Back from the beach and ready to hit it hard listing and turning over inventory in the business. I came back from vacation having reread four business/lifestyle books that will help put me on a good path for the last four months of 2023. I am focusing on just a few numbers in my business and also blocking out...Read More

  Recently my family has made a tradition of spending a week at the beach in late August right before it's time for the kids to report back to school. For me it's become an annual reset where I can read some business books, dream up some ideas and go into the new school year with focus. This time we...Read More
