eBay Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter
Sunday Morning 
July 28, 2019
I have really been enjoying all the posts and news coming out of the World Scout Jamboree.  For the most part it looks like they have been blessed with warm and sunny weather.  I know my Scout has sent back good reports.
This Weekend Is Loaded With Auctions
If you go over on my Facebook profile I filmed an unboxing video for a collection that came in last week.  This one is from the west coast.  I've been working on it for about 6 months and it is almost completely OA which is my favorite collecting area to resale. 

Order of the Arrow Auctions Up For Bids
It's about 3.5 hours from Charlotte to the Visitors Center so my wife has decided that I'll leave tomorrow morning instead of going up tonight to stay with my cousin who lives relatively nearby. Either way I want to see the big event and trade a patch or two although WSJ is not one of my collections I focus on.

Auctions Are The Hot Finds Secret Sauce
I have been peeking at eBay and keeping tabs on the WSJ stuff.  It is really nothing compared to what I typically see for a National Jamboree.  I would have thought with this many Americans and visitors that there would have been a bunch of stuff up but it's really just warming up I guess.

In my original plans I was hoping to trade standard BSA neckerchiefs but the reports I'm getting back suggest those are not very popular.  Modern neckerchiefs with piping and especially colorful ones are what is popular.  Without any contingent stuff to trade I'll also be a little handicapped but it will be fun to do some good old 1:1.

I told my daughter that if she returns with her own collection of patches that we can sew them on a campfire blanket. Since it's only cold a couple months out of the year down South it won't be a heavy thick wool one but then again maybe that will make it easier to do the sewing.
