@ the North Carolina Girl Scout Collector’s Show

The 2015 North Carolina Girl Scout Collector’s Show is in full swing at Trinity Reformed United Church of Christ in Conover, North Carolina. This is my first Collector’s Show, and I’m amazed at all the items on display.

Becky Byrns and the Girl Scout Council Peaks to Piedmont have put together a wonderful event with nearly 40 vendors. This year’s patch says, “An Antique Show That Is Only Girl Scout Stuff” and that description is definitely accurate!

Vendors include private collectors and council archives committees selling excess inventory.

Friday night was setup.  Most committee members had shopping lists of what badges, uniforms, and magazines are missing from their collections.

I brought items from my own collection, including copies of my book and over 100 Council’s Own badges. (Need requirements? Check my Council’s Own website.)

I’m in the corner by the back door.

Stop by and say hello.  Buy a book and give me a chance to use my new credit card reader!

The show runs until 3pm today, Saturday November 14. I”ll add more photos as the day goes on.

  1. Love it!!!! I talk my girls to Jacksonville’s Coin Show. A Boy Scout Coin Collect does the BS Merit Badge and Girl Scout Money (which fits into all levels of GS). He gives the GSs GS memorabilia as well as coin collections and stuff donated by vendors. Wish you were closer because yours looks very exciting. (Old Collector from the 70s and 80s)

  2. Oh great Ann, there’s another patch I’ll be on the hunt for now! Hope the event was filled with new friends and lots of good stories. Wish I could have been there.
