Earn Your Way to Exciting Girl Scout Programs!

What’s for Sale?
Nuts, sweets, magazines and photo keepsakes.

It’s So Easy to Do. Here’s How it Works in 3 Steps.
  1. Girls grab an order card and take orders from family, friends and neighbors.
  2. Girls invite families, friends and neighbors to order online. These items are shipped directly to the customer.
  3. Girls turn in their in-person orders to troop leaders. Troop leaders give girls their sold items to deliver the week of November 18.

NEW Nutshell Items
Photo Keepsakes! You know those fun photo books you make online then print for family? Well we’ve got them this year. Your customers will love ordering the new photo books, photo holiday cards, personalized calendars and posters.

NEW Online Sales
This year you can really simplify your nutshell sale: do it online. Parents set up their Girl Scouts’ nutshell web page (we’ll be getting all that information to you via troop leaders) then send email invitations to friends and family. Online shoppers pay with a credit card and have their merchandise shipped to their address. And, girls earns the same rewards for all her online sales just the same as her in-person sales.Sea otter in kayak

For Girls
Dive into the World of Sea Otters
This year’s nutshell mascot is the Sea Otter! What do you know about sea otters? Let’s learn together. We’ll make sea otter puppets and search for food underwotter (!) just like our sea otter friends at our Sea Otter Spotters program.

Troop Leaders
nutshell training
Plan ahead now to attend in a nutshell training so your girls will be ready for the sale in October. You’ll be contacted directly by your community Product Sale Manager (PSM) to attend a nutshell training in September. Once you attend the training and receive your troop’s packet (order cards, etc.) you can hold a troop meeting to get your girls and parents ready for the October 6 launch!
