Thread Heads Episode #10: Please No Orphans At NOAC

Episode X of the video chat show recorded for the Boy Scout memorabilia hobby features several segments on topics for any thread head. Jason kicks it off sharing his European style campfire blanket that grew out of a summer on International camp staff at Kingsdown outside of Dover, UK. While not a common camping accessory in the deep south it is a very popular thing across the Scouting movement. For those going to trade patches at a trade-o-ree or at this summer’s 2015 National Order of the Arrow Conference (NOAC) Brad has a suggestion for a very good patch bag to carry your cloth. Jason shares his favorite patch bag which is a recycled tool bag. Brad opens up a debate on how do price guides and service like Patchtrends and OAimages help or hurt pure trading. Speaking of NOAC when it comes to trading two-piece sets there is one trick to prevent creating orphans. Watch the video as Jason reveals the one item you need in your patch trading bag that all the veterans carry. The video concludes with a plea for ideas that would help the Scout Patch Collectors Facebook Group work even better. We hope to produce a truly live episode of the show with guests and a chat room in the near future.
