eBay Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter
Sunday Morning
January 11, 2015
This time next weekend folks will be coming home from two big TORs on opposite ends of the South.  I'm sure many folks will be in Dallas for the annual show.  I've been a few times myself but this year I'll be at Chris Jensen's show which is just a little bit closer. There are some great auctions ending soon on eBay so take a few minutes to see what I've got for you today.    
Vintage Auctions Ending Soon on eBay
I know not everyone gets excited about seeing a batch of 1947 WJ patches go up for auction. However, since a similar patch broke the all time sales record several years back going for about $72,000 I always pay attention when those come up.  Especially since ISCA "borrowed" that design for it's logo.


Order of the Arrow Auctions Closing Soon
The red OA sashes that a couple of North Carolina lodges produced have been popping up all over eBay.  I think it will just be a matter of time before other lodges figure out this is a fundraising concept and go for it.  However, it does open up an unpleasant can of worms.  Nowhere does it have the lodge name - in fact that's the idea.  It looks like a national issue.  So what happens when lodges across the country start making things that are similarly generic for anyone in the OA?


Boy Scout Auctions Ending This Weekend
In the next block I have a link to the video that Hank Birdsong and I published this week on how to spread the patch bug.  You probably have your own ideas too and I'd love if you would post them as a response to this video on Youtube or on CarolinaOA.com.

I think that later this month I'll be ready to start filling in some of the categories on ScoutPatchHQ.com.  I've got over twenty Jensen boxes already photographed I just need to list and launch.


This is a picture of my new antique booth from the day I got it set up.  You can see that I still have a lot of work to do and in fact I've done quite a bit since this was taken.  Next week I go down on Tuesday to hopefully finish the job and have all the shelves stocked.  The booth is in Florence, SC at a placed called Palmetto Peddlers.
