Did You Know: Today is Boy Scout Day. The Boy Scouts of America, or BSA, was founded on February 8, 1910 — that’s 102 years ago today. I was never a Girl Scout, but I did always like the movie Troop Beverly Hills and my beau was an Eagle Scout (la di da!), so I hold a certain fondness for these organizations. To celebrate, I’ve rounded up these retro chic Boy Scout-inspired finds.
Top row, left to right: Arrows, Boy Scout/Webelos/Cub Scout Vintage Book Set, Straw Target, Fire Kit Lamp. Middle row, left to right: 1969 Boy Scout NATIONAL JAMBOREE IDAHO Souvenir Coffee Cup, Scout Soap Dish, Scout Soap Set, Camp Hinds Boy Scouts Coffee Mug. Bottom row, left to right: Boy Scout Vintage First Aid Tin Box, Colossus Axe, Vintage Coleman Gas Lantern, Scout Print Shower Curtain.
Retro scout stuff always seems to have a quaint, Norman Rockwell vibe to it that I like. And though these picks have a healthy dash of wholesome, the ruggedness of the designs makes them natural fits for boys’ rooms and bathrooms or even a cabin or lake house. Now, where’s my merit badge for design scouting?!
