SHF Radio #72: Boy Scout Council Hits The Trade-O-Ree Circuit and eBay!
Blog     23 Jan 2015 | 8:37 am
I met Mary Lou Schwarzer at the recent Easley, South Carolina Trade-O-Ree sponsored by Chris Jensen. What makes his encounter interesting is that she drove down from the Blue Ridge Mountains Council in Virginia ( to unload a lot of her council's old inventory including camp patches, OA and special issue CSPs. In talking with here I also learned that she has an official BSA council account on eBay and regularly sells items on that marketplace as well. Mary Lou graciously agreed to let me interview her to find out her impressions of the TOR and tips on how it...

This weekend I'll be at Chris Jensen's show in Easley, SC. As i was driving up I participated in the ISCA board meeting via a conference call. I was not able to stay on the line for the entire 2+ hour meeting but hopefully I'll have some news to share soon on how the survey results are going to push the organization forward. I've got some good blades in today's issue of the Hot Finds. I know there is a hard core group of collectors that go for these and I have to admit I get it. They are authentic Scouting...
