Thread Heads #15: eBay Patch Business Tips

Another episode of Thread Heads from Jason and Brad, this one discussing selling changes on eBay.

Join Brad and Jason as they talk shop. Specifically what are some ways that the recent eBay seller updates have affected their strategies on the marketplace. For example do you know that once you sell an items in your store that unless you act you might continue paying fees to keep that empty listing visible on the platform?

Give it a listen.

Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159 50th Anniversary LEC Flap 1967-2017 S78

Ho-De-No-Sau-Nee Lodge #159 celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2017, and they have already begun to issue flaps to celebrate the event based on proposed designs dating back to 1967.

My understanding is that this is supposed to be one of 4 throwback flaps, but the lodge did not like these versions and is reordered slightly different designs. The reorders were issued on 2017.

While the first one was issued in 2017, the remaining three were reissued at the Williamsville TOR in September 2018.

Here is the forth version issue for the Lodge Executive Committee:

Section NE-3B 2002 Conclave Pin

Another image from Mia Hubbert, this one from the Section NE-3B 2002 Conclave. This one seems to be neither fish nor fowl. Is from an era later than when most hat pins were issued, but the design elements and shape are not usual for a participant pin.
