The story behind the video is that I walked up on a feeding frenzy at the TOR when a family decided it was time to have yard sale prices on old Boy Scout stuff. While others were looking for the good items I was buying tubs full of stuff for pennies on the dollar. So in the video I promoted the whole concept of why TORs are an essential opportunity in this hobby to find deals that you could never score anywhere else.
I do have a tentative guest lined up for this week’s edition of the podcast Scouting Hot Finds Radio. It’s actually a Girl Scout collecting guru – Becky Byrns. She is hosting a Girl Scout collectors show in March and has been mentoring me a little as I have taken up collecting Girl Scout memorabilia the last several years.
I’m back at it again this week tweeking my strategies. Wednesday I have a call lined up with a Charlotte web company that may help me design another web platform.

This week on eBay you will find a lot of relists looking for one more chance to attract bids before they get sent off to my eBay store at Patchblanket.com.
