    SHF Radio: Buying Boy Scout Memorabilia On The Internet

    in Blogs

    Over the last few episodes we've talked a lot about selling Scouting memorabilia on the Internet.  From Facebook Stores to eBay fees that topic has been covered in depth.  One of the interesting feedbacks I got from a listener was what about the other side of the transaction?  So tonight we are turning the tables and looking at things from the buyers perspective.  Dave Scocca of North Carolina is my guest and we will hear his take and with my commentary thrown in.

    SHF Radio #69: Going Hunting For Rare Books & Memorabilia w/Richard Mori

    in Hobbies

    Richard Mori has been collecting Scouting memorabilia and specializing in rare books for many years.  In this interview he reveals a strategy for success that he feels confident nobody can duplicate.  What is really interesting about the way that Richard makes money in the hobby of collecting Boy Scout and Girl Scout memorabilia is that he does it the old school way.  You won't hear the words Internet or eBay mentioned in this interiew.  However, that's not to say that there aren't some nuggets that any collector can take away and relate to.


    This episode represents the third in a series I am doing on ways that people have taken their passion for a hobby and figured out how to make it pay for itself by earning a little money.  In Episode #67 we focused on how to sell on consignment and in #68 we talked about having an antique mall booth.  I hope that you will enjoy this episode of the show just as much. 


    Richard Mori lives in New Hampshire but can be found traveling around the country to shows throughout the year.  He has established a wide network of contacts both in the Scout collecting community and among book dealers.

    SHF Radio #68: Antique Mall Selling Strategy for Scout Memorabilia w/Todd Kelly

    in Hobbies

    When the Boy Scouts of America announced they would be building a permanent Jamboree site in the hills of West Virginia Todd Kelly started making some trips to the "Mountain State" to scope out locations for a Trade-O-Ree. One of the results of that venture was deciding to rent out a booth in two different antique malls in nearby Beckley, West Virginia.  Along with his partner at the time Todd got into the business of selling Scouting collectibles at an antique mall.  It's been almost four years since he dipped his toes into this strategy and Todd is now doubling down on this idea.


    Tonight on Scouting Hot Finds Radio I have the second show in a series on interesting ways that people in the hobby of Boy Scout memorabilia collecting can turn over some of their inventory and make money.  Sure we all know about selling on eBay but in this series I am uncovering some of the lesser known strategies that people are using.  We've already covered selling on consignment in Episode #67 of the podcast. 


    As Todd and I both have antique mall booths we cover a lot of ground in this interview.  You can hear everything from what the basic financial arrangement is with the owner of the store to tips on what questions to ask and what to avoid.  You'll hear how "clutter" is not a four letter word in this strategy and the advantages of having a 7-day a week brick and mortar location that you don't have to staff yourself.  We also cover a tricky situation that you want to avoid and the secret formula for knowing if your antique booth is worth all the trouble and effort.
