This weekend I'm going to attend the Spring Fellowship for Santee 116.  This will be the first fellowship in years that they are not doing ceremonies at so it will be neat to see the focus on getting ready for next month's Dixie Fellowship (SR-5 Conclave).  My wife has given me the green light to spend Saturday night at camp which is a treat.
Vintage Boy Scout Memorabilia Up First
Further down in today's newsletter you will find my latest unboxing video.  This one is a whopper featuring me spilling open 28 pounds of cloth that was all stuffed into one very large priority mail box.  There are about 2,000 patches in that box including OA, shoulder patches and Jamboree.
Order of the Arrow Auctions Live on eBay
I'm going to help a Troop market the sale of a nice OA collection that is going to hit eBay Thursday night.  This collection was donated by an older man at the sponsoring church and when the leaders found out there were some gems in there decided that eBay was the place to go.  They reached out to me for help and of course I was glad to help a good cause. 
28 Pounds of Boy Scout Patches Unboxing
Scouting Auctions Ending Soon on eBay
As you can see in the video many of these patches are now making their way to my Facebook Store over at www.ScoutPatchHQ.com. In my business card for this website I advertise it as having thousands of patches for sale.  After this collection gets loaded up that will be an accurate statement.  
Patchblanket.com eBay Store Santeeswapper
The new sale I'm launching this week is a 35% off sale for red and white community strips.  That discount brings them down to about $2 each which is unheard of on eBay.  You can still catch the big sale on my 2015 NOAC issues as well.
I had an interesting conversation last night with a dealer friend about what it takes to do this hobby as a business.  My wife actually keeps saying she would rather me stay home and sell patches when we move rather than teach school.  I think she secretly wants me to make supper, do the groceries and laundry!  We shall see - I might would rather teach middle school kids than all the domestic chores.

Yours in Scouting,
