Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter June 28, 2022

    This is one of the special perks of being at camp - amid the chaos of having a full week I get to take Scout leaders out on a twilight pontoon boat cruise to see some beautiful wildlife and the setting sun over Lake Murray. This picture was from last nights trip after a light rain storm came...Read More

Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter June 26, 2022

    We are going on Week 3 at Barstow with a loaded house arriving for a week of fun. These troops will get to enjoy the coolest weather so far as the summer heat wave that has broiled June is abating somewhat. We might get some wet weather but I'd rather take that then the nearly triple digit heat...Read More

Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter June 24, 2022

    One area of my eBay store that I've been working on is a lowly category named Council Activity Patches. In buying small collections I get event patches from all over the country and from every time period. Over the next month I'll be auctioning off the best of them that have come in recently including ones going all...Read More

Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter June 21, 2022

    We are 1/2 way into Week 2 and things are going well at Camp Barstow. We have our largest week yet and the weather has been great so far.   Going into the summer I knew I would miss issues of the newsletter with how busy things get. So if you have been to summer camp you will...Read More

Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter June 12, 2022

    At summer camp we have a program on Tuesday night called the Pop Up Scout Museum. Matt Delk and I launched this last year so that we could share some Scouting history by doing a display and short presentation. This year Matt has one ready about Scouting insignia including ranks. Mine is going to be about campfire blankets...Read More

Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter June 07, 2022

    As I'm now in the middle of my 5 weeks of summer camp the newsletter will get a little bit irregular going forward. This one is going out later in the day and lacks some of the banter. But rest assured all is well at camp and we are getting things ready for our campers to rock it....Read More

Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter June 05, 2022

    I had a nice call from a guy yesterday out of Arkansas who was an Eagle Scout and part of the OA. He is going to mail me a small box of stuff that I am having him send to my summer camp. Tuesday night Matt Delk and I do a pop up Scout museum program. Since Matt...Read More

Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter June 03, 2022

    The most satisfying project to complete before leaving for camp was getting my mug collection into a permanent display at my warehouse. I have not had these mugs out in over twenty years. The top row is a Dixie Fellowship mug collection while the bottom is my Pee Dee Area and Camp Coker collections. I told myself when...Read More

Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter May 31, 2022

    This morning before hitting the publish button I posted my latest unboxing video to YouTube. This one came to me out of New York and includes some nice vintage pieces from Munsi lodge. This Scout attended the 1960 National Jamboree and was later part of a Wood Badge course so had a good Scouting career.   This Scout...Read More

Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter May 29, 2022

    This might be Memorial Day weekend but there is no holiday from eBay auctions ending on Sunday like usual. Click any of these listings to see what some of the most interesting ones are going for.   I finally may have come up with a TOR strategy that I'm going to stick with. This has been my eternal...Read More

Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter May 27, 2022

    I wanted to start off the newsletter by letting everyone know (and I may have mentioned this before) that the Charlotte TOR is TBD for 2022. The church is doing renovations in the fellowship hall this summer and with supply chain issues they are hesitant to schedule anything on the calendar for the space. This likely means that...Read More

Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter May 24, 2022

    Yesterday after visiting the dentist I made a restocking trip to my antique mall booth in Charlotte at the Sleepy Poet. When I shared pictures on Facebook someone remarked looks like a TOR set up. That's exactly the vibe I am going for.   I have followed the theory that you need to change up the inventory every...Read More

Boy Scout Patch Collection Unboxing – 1957 National Jamboree Alabama

Another collection recycled back into the hands of collectors! I got an email from a gentleman who attended the 1957 National Jamboree from Alabama who had kept his stuff all these years. We had a great phone conversation where I got to hear the details of his exploits at Valley Forge, PA all those years ago. In this unboxing you...Read More

Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter June 15, 2021

  I just published another unboxing video even though I've been at camp for several days now. Luckily I have some "in the can" thanks to the work of my video editor Samuel. This was a fun collection from a guy that went to the 1960 and 1964 Jamboree.   What made this unboxing even more unusual is that the...Read More

1960 & 1964 Boy Scout Jamboree Collection Unboxing From Pennsylvania

When you get a collection in from a Jamboree Scout from the 1960s it's bound to have some interesting stuff. This collection did not disappoint. In fact this gentleman is a fan of my YouTube channel and I promised that I would get his collection included in one of my unboxings. Enjoy!

    I started collecting Boy Scout memorabilia when I was inducted into Santee Lodge 116, Order of the Arrow at Camp Coker in the summer of 1986. All the guys of ISWA chapter in Elk campsite seemed to be trading and since my dad sent me to camp with a small bag of patches, I jumped in and never looked back....
