It is hard to believe that there already a 2018 NOAC fundraiser set out.  We haven't even seen many of the 2017 Jamboree sets come out yet but I assume that won't take long.  Even though many of us are not in love with fundraiser sets I don't think that we can ever put the genie back in the bottle.
Vintage Boy Scout Memorabilia Up First
In case anyone was wondering YES I did bring home a collection Sunday.  Like most there were plenty of books, uniforms, and a fair share of Boy's Life and Scouting magazines that don't get anybody excited.  This collection even had a dozen baseball caps.  I'm actually going to try and start moving some of that stuff tonight in the Facebook Group almost as an experiment.

There was one tote that came home from the collection that was full of patches and neckerchiefs.  I haven't had time to sort that one out but that's where the jewels are.  There were several nice OA neckerchiefs and a few flaps and event patches that I was really happy to get.  Overall, it wasn't a huge haul but worth the almost four hour trip to go make the deal.
Scouting Auctions Ending Soon on eBay
It looks like I'm going to keep both antique mall booths after all.  I went into the Lumberton store yesterday to talk to the owner and explain how I was going to clean out my booth Saturday.  But after picking up a nice commission check from April we agreed that for the time being I can just be a long distance booth renter and see how it goes.  I've been running a 50% off sale in the booth for some time and that's seems to be driving some good sales.

I haven't talked about the antique mall booths in some time but since summer is around the corner it's possible some of you will be planning trips down Interstate 95 that would take you through North Carolina and South Carolina.  Check out www.santeeswapperstore.com to find out the locations and information on both of my booths.
I will try and have an updated TOR calendar in the next issue.  There are not as many shows this summer but many flyers for the early fall are already out as well.

Yours in Scouting,
