Friday Morning Edition
March 31, 2017

How about bringing your patches in with a table dolly!  Last night after driving the tables over from Easley SC Matt Delk was able to bring in his load to start getting his truck unloaded.  There are going to be a lot of patches coming through that door today as we begin dealer set up at noon and start the Charlotte Trade-O-Ree at 4 PM.  Saturday morning the fun starts at 8 AM til 3 PM.

You never quite know how tables are going to fit in a room until you actually set them up.  Lucky for us instead of everything not fitting we discovered that at the corners we had a little extra space that allowed some adjustments to be made to the floor plan.  Check out the video I made with time-lapse setting on my phone that shows the entire set up in a matter of seconds.
Auctions ending Friday and Saturday on eBay
My mother came up to watch the kids so I could be at the TOR all weekend.  This was a big help since my wife is in Europe this week for work.  While some might think that would have been tough on me getting ready for the show and being a single parent - at least she didn't have to witness and get aggravated by my week long patch freak out.  I tried to organize so much Scout crap this week to prep for the show that the patch cave was (and still is) a disaster.  But it will all be clean when she gets home Monday like none of this ever happened.

As for selling this weekend my goal is simple - bring home less stuff!  I almost emptied out my storage building and made three loads (soon to be loads 4 and 5) to the TOR site.  My goal is to unload as much of the bulky items like uniforms, t-shirts, hats, books etc as I possibly can.  I'll have pictures of my layout in the Sunday issue of the Hot Finds along with more TOR coverage.

Thanks to Matt Delk, Brian Sweeny and some pack volunteers we got everything set up for the TOR - It's something like 110 tables give or take!.

In getting ready for the Charlotte TOR I decided to finally order some nice shirts with my logo embroidered on it. Pictured here is a stitch out of one that I went with.  Some of you will recognize this is the design element from the logo I use for my eBay store Patchblanket.com.  The company I used did a really good job and were super cheap.  If you want to check out Queensboro this link will get you $20 off your first order.  They were really easy to work with and very professional.  They are located in Wilmington, NC but do a big business on the Internet.  I see their Facebook ad all the time.
I hope to see some of you at the Trade-O-Ree.  I also wish those folks going to Allentown a great show.  I've only heard good things about it..
Have a great weekend,
