I spent yesterday working on the patch storage project. This shot is from the inside of new warehouse unit where I'm installing 8 foot tall shelves all the way around. I came up with the design but the father of one of my Cub Scouts who is a much better shade tree carpenter is doing the real install. Eventually this unit will hold my Scouting memorabilia inventory that is not listed yet and allow me to have a space to organize and sort it that does not cause my wife any grief in our house. When your hobby/business outgrows your house domestic peace is a #1 concern.
Vintage eBay Boy Scout Auctions This Weekend
The house we are living in now only has a 1 car garage and this shelving system that is 5x8 pretty much consumed it. So yesterday we disassembled these shelves and moved them to the new space. We are going to reconfigure these shelves to make them fit the space (pictures coming maybe next week). The goal being that the bikes and lawnmower will now be able to go back into the garage.
The moving truck eventually was completely filled with totes of memorabilia and shelving pieces. This picture from earlier in the day includes the Cub Scout mom who also helped with the move. Maybe as part of the Charlotte TOR I can have a warehouse sale and let people have appointments to come shop the day before. :) TSPA did that prior to the last Michigan State NOAC. I can't make it quite that elaborate but just an idea.
This week I drove down to Columbia for my first Camping Committee meeting as the Camp Director at Camp Barstow. I heard a good report from our boating committee and got lots of ideas and suggestions on how to make camp even better in 2018. When one of the discussions is do we keep or sell the 27' sailboat you know you have a fleet. We have a kick-off dinner next week that regrettably I will miss. I have personally reached out to several long time Scouting friends and solicited advice and in some cases got their verbal handshake to come work with me on camp staff.
125 live auctions running in my eBay store as I continue to work through a consignment of JSPs. Today I am going to break into another consignment collection and build some auctions that will start this weekend. Typically I prefer to purchase items outright but sometimes the best solution is using my eBay store to sell it for the collector.
Click to pull up the fliers for Trade-O-Rees that I have fliers on. Please contact the sponsors in order to see more details. If you see a TOR that is not listed please email me and let me know. Likewise I'm always looking to add more shows so send me the fliers as you get them.
