During our den meeting last night I gave a talk about composting kitchen scraps. Since this was a Zoom meeting I was able to show the Webelos the whole set up at our house from the way we collect it under the sink to the outside compost bins and finished garden. I guess in many ways that would not have been possible in a regular meeting at the church so I'll count that as a win for online Scouting.
Vintage Scouting Memorabilia On eBay
This week in patch land I'm focused on my consignors and trying to get new stuff listed for them. I only have a handful of deals like that but it's what helped me get started almost 20 years ago being a serious eBay guy.
I am waiting for a prototype to arrive from a manufacturing company. If you were to look at my warehouse you'd see a rag tag collection of different boxes that I have my inventory stored in. I guess because of the pandemic this company was happy for the business so they have made a built to spec inventory box for me. We will see!
I have really been toying with returning to some of my old tricks for selling on Facebook. On the days when I engage in the group and list stuff I always do well. But too often a week goes by without me putting anything up there. So I'm looking at how I can change that but it's always a balance between what is worth the time investment.
I shared this picture with my existing customers of
Best Hobby Pages yesterday. This is a pallet delivery that I got in last Thursday to restock some of the pages that I sell. This order has just under 10k pages in those boxes. Last month was a very busy one for sending out BHP and I'm making sure to keep everything in stock. In the next month I've got another order for 12,500 pages coming in. So rest assured that if you use BHP it will be around for the long haul.

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.
