I missed sending out an issue Sunday (yes sometimes family comes before patches) so I'll try and catch everyone up with some great auctions and an little update on what's happening in patch land.
Vintage Scouting Memorabilia On eBay
As planned Saturday I did make a 9 hour round trip to go pick up a nice collection. This is a collection from a family I've been working with for some time so it's tying up loose ends and closing out a consignment. I don't have an estimate on when I'll be getting that collection back out for sale as I'm less than 2 weeks away from getting the keys to my new warehouse space.
I did get another small collection in the mail yesterday that hopefully today I can start processing for a video sale. This collection includes stuff from a guy that went to the 1971 World Scout Jamboree.
No the Charlotte TOR is not this weekend! But I did go out and order replacement yard signs and a vinyl banner so we can put them out in front of the church. We had yard signs but they got lost in the shuffle. I took the advice of someone at the BSA Supply Group who said I should really emphasize the FREE ADMISSION to attract more foot traffic.
Almost every day through the end of the month I have auctions ending on my 5dollarpatchstore account. These are all neckerchiefs including many camp and event issues. For the last few days in my warehouse I've been prepping for a big run to the antique mall. With my impending move one goal is to get as much stuff racked and displayed at the Sleepy Poet Antique Mall so I don't have to carry it with me.
it's just me in the warehouse today with both of my part time employess off. Time to turn up the tunes and finish tagging a bunch of antique mall items. Then hopefully I'll get to play with the new collection that just came in.

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.
