After the dust settled this weekend I was able to publish a video on ScoutPatchCollectors.com featuring a seminar I taped on collecting Girl Scout badges.  I am more of a patch hound than many of the other GSA collectors I met so it was good find someone who is just as into the cloth as I am.  After coming home and sorting through it turns out I was closer to 100 new needs secured at my first show.  I'm sure that number will keep shrinking but it was fun plugging holes.
Vintage Boy Scout Memorabilia Up First
I had one of those moments last night that I'm sure you can relate to.  There was an eBay auction that I wanted to bid on and I had 36 minutes until it closed.  I thought yeah I'll go downstairs and eat with the family and run back up and bid.  I remembered about the auction about 3 hours later.  Dooh!
Order of the Arrow Auctions Live on eBay
Well here is another good reason to join ISCA.  Dave Eby has found the only Invention merit badge known to exist and has the picture on the cover the upcoming ISCA Journal.  Considering only 10 were earned this is one of the "Holy Grails" of the hobby.  The family is keeping the patch but at least we now have a picture of it!
Scouting Auctions Ending Soon on eBay
As we get ready to potentially list our house for sale I'm starting to pack up all the Boy Scout "stuff" that I have in the garage and just about every other room in the house.  Living in the same town for 18 years I've accumulated lots of stuff that probably needs a new home.  I might try going to the Indy TOR with a van load of it priced to move. 
Patchblanket.com eBay Store Santeeswapper
I've got some auctions ending this week that feature some neat Baden Powell and classic Scouting pieces.  These are auctions that didn't sell the first go around so I lowered the prices to run them again.  They include a Mafeking Stamp among others. 
I've got my eyes on a few other eBay auctions this week and I hope I don't have to report back to you on Friday that I forgot to bid.  Yes I have a sniper program but sometimes it's fun to count down the seconds for the thrill of the hunt.

Yours in Scouting,
