What do the Boy Scouts sell?

The one I remember (in KC) was Xmas wreaths/garlands/etc. Fresh. We went door to door with our catalog, took the orders, and then had to deliver them when they arrived. As I recall they were actually pretty nice. They'd last a couple of weeks (as I recall)...maybe longer if you were good about spritzing them regularly.

Last year my mom was sent a "free" wreath from Boys Town (not scouts). It was spray painted green and smelled like lacquer or airplane glue. We had to hang it off the back porch where it only killed the birds.
