Last week I did three deals in the parking lot of the Sleepy Poet Antique Mall in Charlotte.  I have even picked a preferred parking spot under a shade tree to pull down the tailgate and lay it all out.  If I wasn't talking about Boy Scout patches we would have a problem.    
Vintage Scouting Auctions Live on eBay
From the collection I purchased Friday the coolest thing was a 1975 lodge NOAC contingent t-shirt.  I can't imagine many of those have survived the 40+ years since the event.  It will go up on eBay tonight but who knows if people from Skyuka Lodge 270 will appreciate it like I do.
Order of the Arrow Auctions Looking Good
Sometimes what I love most about getting a small collection is it's like a time capsule.  This guy had the briefcase that his parents got for him prior to the NOAC at Miami of Ohio in the 70s and it still had everything sorted as if he just got off the bus. Another favorite piece was a copy of the 1975 summer issue of the Traderoo Magazine.  My lord if Pappy Reininger had lived to see the days of the Facebook Group he would be all over that.
Auctions Ending Soon With Bids on eBay
The new Scout Executive in the Pee Dee Area Council is pretty progressive with using the Internet and not afraid to leverage it to sell stuff.  Michael Hesbach is offering up at a huge discount on the custom made three digit troop numbers that are old inventory in the Scout Shop.  Cub Packs and those that have old style uniforms could use these and they are priced at 1/3 what you'd pay if you were at retail.

The Memorial Day weekend has people going to the beach, to the pool (what we did yesterday) and maybe spending a few minutes checking on eBay.  I have been putting up new auctions every night and there are dozens ending tonight.
Ok coolest thing that happened to me Saturday in patch land.  Got a message from a Scouter who stopped in my antique mall with his son as they were traveling from Ohio and passing through Charlotte.  I had to share his message on my webpage for the store because it was so genuine and authentic.  This is exactly what I was hoping would happen when I set up this location.
