Scouts-L Mail Archive for December of 1999: Catalog 2000 & CSP of the Week
Catalog 2000 & CSP of the Week
Fri, 10 Dec 1999 20:50:03 +0000
Stopped by the NCAC Scout Shop today and the Y2K catalogs are in. They
have all the charm of a J.C.Whitney catalog - but in color. It looks
both well organized and cluttered, simultaneously. Imagine that you
need something and you'll find it - sublimally it makes the point that
the center of the universe is sales, and there are even fewer visages of
humans to distract from the objects.
Oh yes, the latest in the "Scout Shop" series of CSPs at NCAC were
there, but won't be for long. (differentiate them from the NCAC CSPs) I
bought a modest three at $2 each and was told that one eBay'er bought
100 earlier. Expect to pay $13-$30 for instant collectables. They're a
Yellow ghost (sheeted ghosts with urinary problems?) CSP with "Y2K" in
white. Makes one wonder when the Council will have a net return from
the sales of the entire CSP run than two of three eBay sales.
