girl scouts obsession

i was a brownie & a girl scout for two years, and the best part of all of it was the amazing gear.

you'd receive these epic patches to sew onto your vest/sash, like this vintage merit badge, for outdoor cooking:

or this cute collection of them:

i'm also obsessed with the vintage uniforms from days of yore. check out the amazing shape of the dress & the little accessories that make this so fantastic:

and the vintage accessories & camping items are epic as well, including this vintage girl scout first aid kit:

vintage girl scout kutmaster folding pocking knife:

1950's celluloid pin of a brownie holding a kitten:

vintage brownie handkerchief & vintage girl scout handkerchief:

vintage collapsible folding cup:

vintage girl scout camera:

or even some ephemera, like this vintage girl scout postcard depicting a "camping disaster!":
