Sunday Morning

A patch storage space DIY project completed!  Earlier this week I posted a Facebook Live video from my 1-car garage (what were they thinking back then!) showing my patch shelving project underway. In the video I promised to share pictures of the completed version.  This can hold about 120 of the Jensen table boxes and the smaller shelf that I added to the front will house a double decker catalog rack that I've had for years.

One of my goals in getting organized and adding storage is to clear out some working space in the patch cave.  My personal collection is stacked up in boxes and I really can't get to it and enjoy it.  I've had big plans for over a year to put my OA flap collection in large artist portfolios with labels.  Now perhaps I can have a work space that is just for those sort of projects!

This issue of the Hot Finds is stuffed with great OA pieces ending in the next day or so.  From lots of flaps to single issue live auctions there is a lot to keep you busy in here.
Auctions Ending Soon With Bids on eBay
I finally did something smart that didn't add to the piles.  Yesterday I cracked open a small collection that I got in from Idaho this week.  The patches never left my desk.  I sorted and scanned them right in with 99% of them going into a new sales album.  You can get patches for as low as $2 each in this collection album by commenting on which ones you want and sending me a message.

I was not trying to time it so that my best New York OA would all end during a blizzard weekend.  However, with it cold outside I think I've had a few folks take notice of this large batch of OA auctions I have ending tonight on eBay.
If you missed the Facebook Live video I have added it to my website at ScoutPatchCollectors.com as a stand alone post.  I think I see a strategy forming here to create a 10-15 minute video on this platform at the end of every week to just kinda wrap up what I've been up to.  Since the podcast is an audio only show it helps to share the big tips since everybody is not going to consume it in that format.
