Yesterday while sorting some patches I came across these 4 that are keepers. I have been passively collecting OA names/numbers for years. My needs list hasn't been updated in a while but sure enough these four old issues were on there so I pulled them from the sort and put them in the collection box. One day this summer I hope to get this personal collection organized.
Vintage eBay Scout Auctions This Weekend
This week I got to work on doing a total inventory of my stores. It's not gong to be a quick project with something like 30k items across multiple stores. However, I am already very satisfied with the new boxes. Going through everything gives me a chance to find mistakes and correct them before the item sells. The added bonus is I now have a fresh box of orphans that I thought were listed but are not.
Tomorrow I have a couple of collectors coming to visit all the way from Missouri. We made a connection on Facebook regarding the remains of a collection I pulled out of Missouri a couple years ago. I have boxes and boxes of paperwork, camp and activity patches that I would love to send back home. We are meeting bright and early at 8 AM and I'm spending most of the day going through every box on the shelf to make sure I don't miss anything.
In doing this sorting project I've also started sorting the other boxes on the shelf including Girl Scout stuff, books and other BSA paper. So far I have not stumbled across any boxes containing anything that I forgot about but after I publish the newsletter I will keep digging.
I've got a couple of collections to crack open and if I can come to a stopping point today perhaps I'll film an unboxing video. I'm really interested in one in particular not because it's amazing but it's a little more local to me.
