Why TORs Are The Still Relevant In 2018

Why TORs Are The Still Relevant In 2018

In the last 9 months I have attended more trade-o-rees (swap meets for Boy Scout patch collectors) than I ever have before.  I've been out to St. Louis, up to Indianapolis and over to Norfolk.  One of the common grumbles I've heard from fellow dealers is that declining attendance and therefore declining sales are spoiling these events.  I certainly agree that my sales from all of these shows have been less than spectacular.  In fact the very first show I went to the in the fall of 2017 I don't think I made enough to cover my trip costs.  Now...

Do Your Vinyl Plastic Pages Crackle?

Do Your Vinyl Plastic Pages Crackle?

Long before I ever purchased the company from Joe my favorite product that BHP carries is the 6-Pocket Scout White Polypropylene Archival Page. What I really like about these is that the white backing provides such a great pop to the color of the patches.  A lot of people cut out index cards to fit in these similar page but these have the white literally baked in as a solid backing of poly white plastic.  But perhaps the best reason to use the 6-Pocket Scout White Pages and the similar 6-Pocket Clear Scout Pages is what happens to the competition...

Dallas TOR Report

The 2nd stop on the Trade-O-Ree circuit for Best Hobby Pages in 2018 was the Dallas TOR which is held at the Grapevine Convention Center.  So far as I know the full BHP inventory had never been to a Dallas Trade-O-Ree so this was a good opportunity to introduce the product to collectors in that region.  Several people did make small purchases to test out the archival envelope and page system.  However one of the best known collectors in that area, Tracy Mesler, made a deal to take home several hundred dollars worth to test out on his extensive Region...

Free Pick Up @ Indy TOR

I know that one of the great things about taking Best Hobby Pages on the road is that collectors can afford to purchase more product when they are not doing the math on shipping fees. I'm taking BHP to several Boy Scout memorabilia shows this year it makes sense to help collectors place an order for pickup and skip the s&h charges.   If you want to place an order for the Indy TOR coming up the weekend of Feb 2-3, 2018 you can do so before 10 PM Est Wednesday January 31 and I'll bring it.  At checkout there is...

Besthobbypages.com – Got Plastic? We Do!

This was the scene in August of 2017 when Joe Klos and I started the partnership that finally culminated recently in me becoming the new owner of Best Hobby Pages. After moving to Maryland for a new job opportunity the BHP product was in a storage unit back in Fredericksburg, VA.  I met Joe there with a rented U-Haul truck and loaded up the cases of product and supplies.  For the rest of 2017 I handled fulfillment for the the company and took BHP to several TORs to sell it in person.  When the year came to a close we...
