This morning I published a video that shares all the details on the upcoming Charlotte TOR. If you see on your calendar that the weekend of April 5-6 is clear I hope you'll consider coming to this great show.
Vintage Scouting Memorabilia On eBay
At last night's pack meeting I had one more opportunity to pitch it to the Scouting families at our church. Between the pack and three troops sponsored by the church there are around 175 kids involved in Scouting. If we can get those folks to turn out in good numbers that will be a win for walk-in traffic which is the dream of any TOR organizer.
Scout Memorabilia Show Charlotte Trade-O-Ree April 5-6
Order of the Arrow Top Selling Auctions
I have spent the last two days focusing on the silent auction items. I literally am taking a collection that just came in and converting all of it to silent auction items. Many of these items are priced with $1 minimum bids which will make them some serious fodder for anybody wanting to flip stuff on eBay.
Yesterday I got 250 items bagged and tagged for the silent auction. My goal was to have 500 items in the auction but now I can see that it's going to go beyond that so the printer is doing me a rush job to send more bid sheets. I hope to make this silent auction a real selling point to get people to come back every year.

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.
