Boy Scout Collection Unboxing: 23 Pounds of 1980s Jamboree Goodies

Although this box sat in the corner of my office while I was serving as the Camp Director last summer (sorry Lewis) it was finally time to unbox the collection. This Scout was active in the 1980s and attended the 1983 World Jamboree in Canada and the 1985 National Jamboree held at Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia. While at the...Read More

  The Hot Finds is a little thinner today because my family is beginning our final vacation of the summer. This one is a bit of a working vacation as my wife is going to test out working from "home" while at the beach. For the rest of us that means the pool, beach and kayaking so life is good!...Read More

    Well as of today everyone who works with me has caught COVID this summer. I didn't see one of my employees this week as she was isolating after her husband tested positive. But I got the news this morning that she also has it now. If you have not caught this latest strain of the virus count yourself...Read More

    Today I think I will be the only person in the warehouse. My main task is pulling good stuff for the Pre-NOAC trade-o-ree and making a run to the antique mall to check in and add some new material for the time in almost two months.   I have 24' of real estate at the TOR to plan...Read More

    Wow! Maybe I forgot how massive these TORs are after four years or maybe the layout and energy of this one is just better. But Day #1 of this Pre-NOAC TOR was awesome. I don't think I had more than 5 minutes between conversations with many fellow collectors. Some of them I had just met after mailing them...Read More

    It has been a long time since the 2018 NOAC and I can't be the only person chomping at the bit to finally get the thread heads together in one room again. At a Pre-NOAC TOR there will be people that I have not seen in almost five years. It's hard not to spend the entire time talking...Read More

    I got an update from Chris Jensen that he asked me to share out. If you are traveling to the TOR please use this address - 415 Lakeside St. Knoxville, TN 37914. There is a road closure that this will help you avoid any delays near the convention center. The TOR opens Saturday morning and I hope to...Read More

  This weekend my family made a trip down to Pawleys Island SC to get one more beach weekend in. But it's not without a patch related errand. I sold Jim Pifer one of his OA needs last week and rather than trust the mail to deliver it I am planning on hand delivering it to him later today since...Read More

  Monday I have a call scheduled with my audio and video editor to come up with some strategies for a new series of videos I'd like to produce in the fall. This is where having someone with knowledge of their industry comes in handy. Samuel has helped me to increase the quality of my content and before I start...Read More

  This week I'm finally getting to crack open the boxes of stuff that I brought home from my trip through the South earlier this month. One of the guys did a lot of trading at national events going back into the 1980s so there is a lot of $5-$10 patches which are my bread and butter selling on eBay....Read More

  I had a great time at the Occoneechee TOR this weekend. Multiple people drove 8+ hours to be there so nobody can call this just a local show anymore. In fact I heard one of the big time dealers tried to get tables too late a few months ago and got left at home.   A month from now...Read More

  I caused a little excitement in the Facebook Group last night. So yesterday I unboxed a great TX collection that came in this week. (recorded the unboxing - will be published next month). This was a collection where nothing in there was newer than 1965. Mic drop LOL But the real surprise as I started looking was a lodge...Read More

  This weekend I'm packing my stuff into the patch wagon and heading up the road about an hour and 1/2 to Camp Durant for the Occoneechee TOR. If you are attending I look forward to seeing you - if you have not this is a good one to put on your calendar. Yes it's pretty heavy on North Carolina...Read More

  Tomorrow I am meeting a couple of guys to purchase collections in MS and LA. But today I'm visiting Graceland with my mom (a real Elvis fan as a teenager). We got to walk Beale St. in Memphis last night and get a little feel for the city.   Ironically the collections I'm picking up are not even home...Read More

Boy Scout Collection Unboxing Camp Alliquippa Yohogania Area Council BONUS Transatlantic Camp Mohawk

In this video I unbox two small vintage Boy Scout collections that I picked up. The first is just an envelope of stuff that includes some items from the Transatlantic Council. I was most interested in the felt 1959 Camp Mohawk patch from England. This was a BSA camp of the council overseas. The second collection was from PA and...Read More

    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....
