I am not much of a collector but I attend as many traderees as I can. The
amount of history of scouting on display at these is amazing. Most "traders"
are glad to tell you the story behind their wares even when they know you
have no interest in buying items. I collect handbooks and fieldbooks not for
the sake of collecting but for the information they contain. So I don't care
if the book is a little tattered or a coffee stain is on it. They are also
alot cheaper that way too :) .
I also apreciate the booths with the inexpensive patches since we have taken
scouts to these. The your choice .25 patches are always popular .
I also am interested in any district Klondike patches any one would like to
