Tomorrow I've got to drive 4 hours round trip so I can make some decisions about camp shirts, hats, swag.  One of the perks or maybe it's a responsibility of being a camp director is deciding what to order for everyone to wear.  Since I'm highly opinionated about this thankfully I get the last word.
Vintage Scouting Memorabilia On eBay
I've had fun playing with different patch designs and going back and forth with a shirt company.  But with staff week a little more than a month from now I have to pull the trigger and make the call.  Unfortunately, one company that I spent a lot of time working with fell through.  So Wednesday I'm going to drive down to Columbia to a trade show so I can touch and try on everything to make some decisions. 
Order of the Arrow Top Selling Auctions
One of the fun graphic projects I took on early was creating a brand logo for Camp Barstow.  I'm someone who loves history so with the help of Jason Shull I was able to get my graphic artist to recreate the original camp patch from 1930.  Going to the Florida trade show last year I saw that most camps had a brand logo that didn't change every year.  My hope is over time this classic design will help set that mark for Barstow.

Scouting Auctions Ending Soon on eBay
This is the latest mock up I have for our camp patch.  Although it may be hard to see it actually features a pretty cool hidden gem.  Instead of the good old Indian in a canoe on the water we have a pontoon boat.  That's our big addition to the fleet this summer.  The weekend of May 17th I'll get to take a ride on our new boat named ALOHA.  
 

Patchblanket eBay Store Santeeswapper
Over on my patchblanket.com store I've got 168 live auctions running with more launching tonight. Today I'm focused on listing since most of my day tomorrow will be tied up in driving back and forth. Listing is kinda like doing your homework - it's not necessarily fun but keeps the bills paid.
I sent some lodge flaps in for Brad England's blind OA flap trade.  Sometimes when you buy collections you send up with a bunch of flaps from the same lodge.  The ones I set in were really pretty good flaps but when you have 40-50 of a single flap what else can you do but trade them out?

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.
