Girl Scout bookbinding badge
As I mentioned in this post, I recently purchased a Boy Scout bookbinding merit badge. It now lives on my work apron and I love it.
Before I continue, I have to tell you something about myself – after I buy something, I feel compelled to do a search and see if it’s for sale at a lesser price somewhere. It’s stupid and serves no purpose, but I do it anyway.
So I did a search on Ebay for bookbinding badges and discovered that there’s a similar badge for Girl Scouts. I was a Girl Scout. At some point in time, one of these badges will be mine.
Oh yes, it will be mine.
I spent a couple of hours online trying to get more information about the badge – anything about its history. All I could find is that the bookbinding badge was previously called “Scribe” and was produced from 1938 – 1948.
I’m thinking that I’ll actually have to do some hard copy library research to get more information about the badge. People still do that, right?
Many thanks to Amanda Dorris (a.k.a. pacificgroveinnkeeper on Ebay) for generously granting me permission to use her badge photo.
