As promised I have another unboxing video to share with you today. I cracked open these 3 boxes yesterday and must have gotten carried away because I talked for nearly an hour.
Vintage Scouting Memorabilia On eBay
After filming the video I talked with the owner and made a deal to purchase the items. Turns out all this stuff belonged to his father who was very active in the 1960s including going to the 1969 Jamboree. His dad was a Vigil Honor member of Thunderbird Lodge in North Dakota.
As I did with the last collection I've made these items available to collectors who are in the Scout Patch Collectors Facebook Group. So far over the last 24 hours I have "rehomed" a number of items which is kinda the goal to get these back into circulation.
In most collections there are a handful of things that I keep for myself. One thing I like is his 1960s thick cotton Vigil Sash. That would look good in August when I go to Momentum. I've thought about a couple of other items like the sheath knife/hand axe combo but this one made by Imperial is not my favorite. I'm a fan of the one made by Western.
Every night I'm launching new auctions and in the Hot Finds I like to give everyone a quick link to the action. On $5dollarpatchstore I have 198 auctions on Council Shoulder Patches. On patchsniper you can find 171 auctions mainly on OA flaps. On OApatch I have 121 auctions on OA flaps and two-piece sets.

In Charlotte, North Carolina I have an antique mall booth that is filled with nothing but Scouting stuff. I call this location my clearance center because I've marked down everything to move. A lot of what you will find there are items that are too bulky to easily ship from an Internet store. The booth is located in The Sleepy Poet which is a well established antique mall on South Blvd in Charlotte. The mall is open 7-days/week year round. So the next time you are in the area come check it out.
