Sunday Morning
December 4, 2016
This is just what I was hoping to see.  Yesterday while running my storewide 20% off sale a collector went in and purchased 18 different patches from his council.  I typically only run sales this big a few times per year so check it out.  
Vintage Scouting Auctions Live on eBay
Thursday I'm putting up a display at my district banquet with Scouting memorabilia to help promote the Charlotte TOR.  The question now is what to put up?  I've got a pretty good local lodge collection but outside of OA what appeals to your typical Scouter?  Would this be a good year to mount a Jamboree display with paper and patches going back to 1935?
Order of the Arrow Auctions Looking Good
I've been watching the auction for the Red sash below and the results so far are pretty impressive.  Maybe because it's for a good cause or maybe because it's just that rare this one is worth a look.
Auctions Ending Soon With Bids on eBay
The red neckerchief from the 1975 WJ is approaching $1k in bidding.  I have no idea if its a small subcamp or something even more unique than that.  Guys who went to this event would be in their late 50s early 60s so they probably have some money to spend.

Over on eBay I've got 87 live auctions and they are all old camp and council neckerchiefs.  All the starting bids are less than $9 which seems like a good price point to reunite these pieces to a Scout who would appreciate them.
This weekend on my wifes suggestion we drove up to Ashe County NC to go hunt a live Christmas tree from one of the popular tree farms up there.  The scenery was a welcome change from the city and we found a nice mountain cabin (with wifi) to spend the night.  The host had all kinds of farm animals and my daughter fell in love with the place especially the mules.  As I type up the last sentence of this edition these two are outside in the light rain exploring the farm before we head home.
