Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter May 17, 2015


My 5 Junior Girl Scouts completed their Bronze Award project yesterday and as you can see they had some help. One of the points of the project is to make it into a community effort and we were able to get local Boy Scouts to help out. In the end there were over 40 youth and adults taking part. Troop 763 from Dillon, SC wins the award for the most unusual item pulled from the river – a shopping cart!

Right about now I know an eBay user that is glad he refused some offers to end his auction early with a BIN. In the upper right there is a nice lot of patches from North Carolina that include a first issue Wahissa and some nice felt camporee patches. Those Old Hickory boys really like their stuff so that auction will do well.

If you are ready to start your WAB collection then I suggest purchasing one of the reprints of the Wabanigo book. Published in 1952 this book was the first attempt at documenting Order of the Arrow patches. This was during a time when not every lodge even had a lodge patch and before flaps were the standard issue for an Arrowmen’s uniform. So a WAB collection would be getting every patch in the book – not many brave souls have gotten close to finishing that one.

I got an email from a collector that is stopping by Florence, SC antique mall booth on his way to Hilton Head this Tuesday. This is exactly the warm weather travelers that I’m hoping will make a detour to come to the Palmetto Peddlers. Did I mention that the store has 180 vendors and your wife would love you for giving her a few hours to explore.

I am looking to make some simple podcasts to get back into the swing of things since it’s been so long since I’ve had a show published. Maybe this week I can try out my idea and see if it will work so I can get back behind the microphone. I know my iPod has missed seeing any new updates.
