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

  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

  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

  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

  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

  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

    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

  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

  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

  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

  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

  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

    This weekend I was able to attend the Santee Lodge fall fellowship and get two more nights under the stars at Camp Coker. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing old friends and having lots of conversations about Scouting and catching up with people. The lodge inducted over 30 new members with Brotherhood and Vigil ceremonies also taking place.   The...Read More

    For the last two days I have solely been focused on moving my antique mall booth at the Sleepy Poet in Charlotte to their new location 2 miles down the road. Yesterday I believe I made 5 van trips back and forth in the rain. Today I have a van load full of new inventory to take so...Read More

  Yesterday I spent the day picking two collections that were within an hour drive of my house. On one of those I learned quite a bit about how probate works and got a good reminder of why we all need a will. In this case a ladies first cousin passed away in FLA with no will and no natural...Read More
