Last night my Den 9 bears became Webelos. It's been a fun 3 years leading these Scouts with lots of helps from other dads and moms in the den. I was even surprised last night with a presentation that awarded me the Den Leaders Training Award. Looks like I have another knot to sewn on!
Vintage Scouting Memorabilia On eBay
There are lots of good vintage auctions to pick from in this issue today. I always start with the oldies because that is where my own collecting passion lies.
I am working up some new logos for my alternate eBay accounts. The one above with my old twitter bird just doesn't get me too excited. Right now I've got over 500 items listed at $5 each with free shipping at
I'm actually going to step back as den leader next year. My assistant said he wants to take over (and earn his knot) and I'm happy to let some fresh ideas and energy flow. I'll slip back to be an assistant which should mean I don't have to stress about what the game plan is for every Monday meeting.
Keep Calm And Scout On,
Jason Spangler Hot Finds Newsletter
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.
