Jason Spangler - the Santeeswapper

I am an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow.  I grew up going to Camp Coker in Society Hill, SC where I was inducted in Santee Lodge 116 as a youth in 1986.  It was that summer that I got hooked on trading and collecting Boy Scout memorabilia.  When the Internet took off in the 1990s my wife actually suggested the nickname "Santeeswapper" to honor my roots as a former Lodge Chief of Santee 116 and my passion as a patch trader.  Scouting has been a big part of my life.  I've served as a Scoutmaster twice in different troops and I count 11 Eagles under my watch.  I've done a little bit of everything having been the president of an Explorer Post in college and later a Sea Scout ship in Lumberton, NC.  I actually got to serve as a the Girl Scout leader of my daughters very active troop at our church from Brownies through Cadettes.  After moving to Charlotte I've become the Tiger Den Leader for my son as he starts his path in Scouting.

I've tried to take my hobby of Boy Scout memorabilia collecting into the 21st century by building several websites and projects to serve the hobby.  I am the editor of the Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter which goes out to thousands of Scouting memorabilia collectors three times per week.  I am also the cofounder of the largest online trading community - the Scout Patch Collectors Facebook Group

I have published dozens of videos on my YouTube Channel focused on the Scouting memorabilia hobby including tutorials and popular unboxing videos when I get a new collection in.

Over on Facebook I publish a lot of new material on my Facebook Business Page.  I also have sales albums there that I sell from directly to other collectors.

You can catch my podcast where I interview interesting people in the hobby of Boy Scout memorabilia at Scouting Hot Finds Radio.  I try to have a new episode every two weeks.

The other project I am spending a lot of time on these days is being webmaster of CarolinaOA.com.  This is a collaborative site of about twenty editors seeking to share and preserve the history of the Order of the Arrow in North Carolina, South Carolina, and some parts of Georgia.

I started my business in 2007 as Santeeswapper LLC.
