Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 28, 2021

  Just about every day this weekend has some made up name for marketing purposes. That extends into Monday when we are supposed to shop online as if that doesn't happen every day of the week now. But I went for it and have hundreds of auctions ending over the next two days trying to catch some of the action...Read More

Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 26, 2021

  While I was watching a movie with the family Wednesday I bought a small collection. Luckily texting in a movie theater isn't a sin if nobody is sitting near you. This was a cool collection from an Eagle Scout from TX. I just got the medal and a handful of patches but always fun to get a vintage collection....Read More

Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 23, 2021

  Yesterday I finished organizing my CSP collection. In doing so I discovered about 30 relatively easy issues that were on my needs list. So being the savvy eBay shopper that I am I put all those needs in my shopping cart and checked out yesterday. For a little less than $250 I got to cross off 75% of my...Read More

Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 21, 2021

  Tonight I am going to make a little bit of a gamble. I have been saving up some pretty good items to list to auction for just this moment. I'm rolling the dice and figuring that the Sunday after Thanksgiving (and Black Friday etc) is a good one to have some really nice cloth ending at auction. We will...Read More

Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 19, 2021

  I am finishing up this issue of the Hot Finds from a restaurant down the street from my antique mall. I have just a few more items to put in there before the grand opening this weekend. I want to make sure my booth is neat and ready. You wouldn't believe how people trash a booth leaving stuff on the...Read More

Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 16, 2021

  This morning I published a new unboxing video that shows me cracking open three collections in about 10 minutes. Each of the collections was unique but as always some of the same items were in each group. Want to guess what the common pieces were? But there was one really unique piece that I was very happy to get...Read More

Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 14, 2021

    Another Saturday night in the warehouse streaming my favorite college football team and working on some listings. This time the game was a bust but I did get a bunch of uniforms and t-shirts from recent collections tagged and ready for the antique mall. The grand opening is next weekend so I'm going to make one more run out...Read More

Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 12, 2021

  Earlier this week I published a Top 10 video for the month of August 2021. What I decided to do here was turn things around and this time rank the items according to the number of bids. This resulted in some unique listings making the cut. You can see the videos and find which items made the Top 10 here....Read More

Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 09, 2021

  Later today I've got a couple of videos that I'm going to post. One is a Top 10 video featuring items that sold in August. This is a type of eBay roundup video that I've done a few times recently that I'm trying to make a regular piece of content. The second is I'm posting an exclusive unboxing video...Read More

Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 07, 2021

  Friday while working in my antique mall booth I bumped into an older guy that runs a unique business. He does house clean outs which lends itself to accumulating lots of stuff. He offered to let me get a bunch of magazines from him but also let slip that he had a couple truck loads of albums. I know...Read More

Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 05, 2021

  This week I finally got to focus on listing more items in my eBay store. Specifically, I listed hundreds (like 500+) belt buckles, neckerchief slides, coins and all the other 3D kinda items that I have been sitting on for way too long. You can find it all at my Patchblanket eBay Store.   Not long after getting today's issue...Read More

Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 02, 2021

  I finished moving last week and settling in to the new location at the Sleepy Poet Antique Mall in Charlotte. As promised I filmed a video showing the new booth stocked with fresh inventory. I am going back this Friday to take enough restock to fill every nook and cranny.   Today I listed for perhaps the first time over two...Read More

Triple Boy Scout Collection Unboxing Including Philmont, Jamboree and lots of cloth

Coming home from summer camp I had several collections bought and paid for but unopened in the corner. The fun part about unboxing three collections at once was seeing the similarities between all of these with some hidden surprises. You can see the common themes were Scouts going to the Jamboree (whether it be the World or National) and of...Read More

Holy Grail Order of the Arrow Collection Flap

It's not very often that you get the top item on your needs list in the Boy Scout memorabilia collection hobby! I really started focusing on organizing my Order of the Arrow flap collection in the last year. During that time I was able to get some key needs and got things down to about 10 key needs. Now I've...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....
