Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter September 28, 2018

  Every once in a while I get a call from my antique mall store with a customer making a strange request. This week it was a high school student that wanted to buy over 200 of my $1 patches at a discount for a project. I have no idea what the project was and should have made send me...Read More

    Ok so what I did was create a Facebook Page called the Scout Uniform Closet and in there I posted albums that had pictures of the uniforms that I had photographed and measured. I spent a lot of extra effort ironing and cleaning the pieces prior to listing in order to make them shine. Sure enough when recruiting...Read More

  Tonight on eBay I have over 100 auctions ending. These are mostly relisted items where I dropped the prices after my first run. Sometimes with Scouting collectibles you don't know exactly what the right number is for a minimum bid to protect yourself and give the bidder enough room to jump in.   Today I'm working on a project...Read More

  It's a small world. I'm sure in Scouting you are often reminded of that. Yesterday during a break in the action at the training event I attended I bumped into a friend from my Scouting days in Iswa Chapter of Santee Lodge. I am pretty sure the last time I saw Drew Dowling was at his wedding. Twenty plus...Read More

  I think it's taken me all week to get caught up from a Hurricane Florence hangover. Despite my best efforts I have not been able to zero out my shipping all week and get completely caught up. The good news is I've had a string of orders for Best Hobby Pages that always take time to count and package....Read More

When a hurricane is bearing down on you it is handy that the previous owners of our new house left behind a sand box. My kids are a bit too old to enjoy it so this morning we turned that into a sand bagging pit and made 20+ bags that I could use to shore up the warehouse. I can...Read More

I should have taken a picture! On a whim I asked my daughter if she would come with us to Cub Scouts and be a Den Chief for one of the girl dens. We had talked about this off and on a few times but she was never committed. But when a storm cancelled her field hockey practice afterschool she...Read More

  Tomorrow we fire up our first night of the program year for the Bears of Den 9. Right now we have nine Cub Scouts but I will see Monday if some of those fall off or hopefully we add a few new fresh faces. Our pack will also start up some female Cub Scout dens so it's the beginning...Read More

This week feels like I finally got settled in and started cranking out new listings for auction. Right now I've got 100+ brand new auctions up and running. Some of these are items I've been sitting on for most of the year and just now getting time to launch.   Perhaps the coolest things I am listing now are felt...Read More

I've been moving some of my 2018 NOAC issues since starting up a 25% off sale. I found some more patches that never got listed from the event and I'll try and get those up this week too before all the interest in these has waned.   It turns out my niece is going to become my newest "employee" next...Read More

Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter September 02, 2018

  Sometimes when you are sitting on a porch drinking that first cup of coffee in the morning do you ever think up patch projects where you can kinda see in your minds eye what the finished product looks like? I had that moment this morning and after the dust settles from moving I'm going to start working on it....Read More

  I started my work day just before 6 AM and am rolling through a productive Friday leading into the holiday weekend. Earlier I recorded a video on 5 reasons why Facebook has been good the last couple of weeks. I'll share some of those in today's newsletter.   I need to clean off my sorting table so it's time...Read More

I'm sure some of the readers can sympathize with my current situation. I'm short on sleep and suffering with a sore knee after spending all day yesterday moving and "camping" out in the new house with no furniture. I think I'm getting old!   This opening block of the newsletter has some really cool vintage pieces up for auction. As...Read More

It took a while for me to jump through the hoops with eBay but I finally have my 15% off sale running on my 2018 NOAC items. Apparently they don't like you running "sales" on relatively new listings so I had to wait them out until I could offer everyone a discount.   I think I may have found a...Read More

Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter August 24, 2018

  I did indeed get a neat collection this week albeit tiny that had some cool pieces from a Scout that attended the 1959 WSJ held in the Philippines. He traveled the world on a tour with a bunch of Scouts after the event which must have been an unbelievably formative event for a teenager.   Every collection I get...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....
