After making a round trip in a 20' Uhaul truck to empty out my booths along Interstate 95 its finally coming together. This is a shot of my new booth yesterday as I was leaving. I've got another long day today of pricing and hauling in more boxes but it's good to see the end of the tunnel. I'll be shooting a video from there later today and will probably have it up on by the weekend kinda introducing the booth to folks.
Vintage eBay Boy Scout Auctions This Weekend
One thing that is taking me so long is that I decided to really match my new strategy for the booth that I had to retag and reprice everything. So for the books this meant going in and erasing the old price (written in pencil) and updating it. Luckily, I borrowed a chair from my neighbor because yesterday I processed about a dozen banker boxes full of books and I have more to do today.
The other piece of this that I'm really happy about is that I met my own deadline of getting this all in place prior to the Charlotte TOR at the end of the month. I know that my best audience for the booth is the local Scouting community and that's also who we hope to see attend the TOR. Now I can encourage folks to drive over to the Sleepy Poet when they leave the TOR (it's open late on weekends!).
I am a little bummed that it's been two weeks since I've produced an episode of the podcast but now that this big project is almost over I can look over the horizon and hopefully put something together for next week.

I said YES this is the tail end of the PA collection that I got and have been selling over the last few weeks. One of the T-shirts is headed overseas and three others were bought by vintage shirt collectors so it was fun to be part of. You can see how these auctions are doing by
