eBay Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter
Sunday Morning 
August 23, 2020
I have an unusual unboxing video to share in today's Hot Finds. I could not tell you the last time I purchased a collection with coffee mugs in it.  I usually run from those collections.  But this time opening the box brought me such joy!
This Weekend Is Loaded With Auction
This one started with an unusual Facebook message from a college student here in NC that was on my friends list. "do you buy oa mugs"?  Now normally I would try to make that question into some kinda joke but I politely replied back "well it depends on what ya got".  So from there the story began. 

Order of the Arrow Auctions Up For Bids
Turns out a coworker had given his mom a box with about 13 1970s era coffee mugs.  When he sent me the pictures I was blown away.  It included an almost complete run of Dixie Fellowship mugs from 1970 - 1976. But the most intriguing mug to me was a lodge mug from my home lodge.  A mug that during my last move was broken and had been a point of real aggravation for me ever since. 

OA Auctions Ending Tonight on eBay
Auctions Are The Hot Finds Secret Sauce
So I agreed to buy almost all of the mugs and some other patches he wanted to cash out on.  I filmed an unboxing video (of course) knowing what was inside.  I've never been so happy to buy a coffee mug!

Tonight I have dozens of auctions ending.  These are mostly all of the camp and council activity patches from the Pacific Northwest collection I've been selling recently.  I figured running them all together made sense.  All together I have 167 live auctions with most of the rest being OA flaps. 

I have been spending a little more time on my blog sites and my next goal is to step back into podcasting.  I have one recorded show that I will publish next week then perhaps I can do a series of new interviews this fall.  I have been keeping my head down doing a complete inventory and moving stores around but I will be 100% finished with that this week!
