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...

I listen to a lot of podcasts about the eCommerce world since my B.A. in History from the University of South Carolina didn't cover that topic in the 1990s.  ;)  On a recent episode the guest described the "review economy" that we live in today.  My wife works for a Business Magazine as a Senior Editor and I asked her if she had ever heard of that term.  She in response scolded me for believing everything these online entrepreneurs opine about.  However, it's undeniable that in retail today people are looking for unbiased reviews before making purchasing decisions.  We all...

Passing The Torch

Passing The Torch

I was there in 2009 when Joe Klos launched Best Hobby Pages at the Pre-NOAC Trade-O-Ree.  Ironically earlier that year I had started my email newsletter the Scouting Hot Finds.  So going into the National OA Conference I was trying to get into blogging and had a camera set up at that Trade-O-Ree.  I asked Joe if he would let me interview him as a kind of commercial to explain and promote his product.   Over the next decade I saw Joe and his Best Hobby Pages crew at multiple TORs and always enjoyed their set up with bright t-shirts...
