Tuesday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter November 26, 2019

I heard from a few collectors that over the Thanksgiving holiday they were going to use some of the down time to play with their patches. That prompted me to make a seldom used offer on Best Hobby Pages. Through noon today you can get free shipping on any order of $200 or more. Stock up today and I’ll ship them today before I too drive off to the in-laws for Turkey Day.

I have had a lot of success with selling on Facebook in the Scout Patch Collectors group. However, the amount of messages that have to go back and forth in order to complete a deal from start to finish is painstaking. So the solution I’ve found will allow me to automate that messaging by putting items in a shopping cart and allowing someone to checkout. It sounds almost too good to be true so I’m going to test it out in a live video Cyber Monday from my warehouse.

Through the holiday I am running a 19% off sale in my largest store category on patchblanket.com. This sale is live on over 8,000+ items in my store including many of my most expensive pieces.

On my $5 Dollar Patch Store account I have 184 live auctions including camp neckerchiefs, trail patches and OA. On patchsniper I am running 233 live auctions on OA neckerchiefs and some relists where I had dropped the minimum bid by 15%. On OApatch I have 129 live auctions on OA with low minimum bids.

I know a few of you enjoy keeping up with the ins and outs of this patch business that I run. So I’m happy to share that this last week I hired my 2nd part time employee. She is the mother of one of the girls on my daughter’s field hockey team. Hopefully, with the extra help I can get freed up to dive into the back of the warehouse and get more stuff sorted and listed.
