Jaw-dropping neighborliness in Vermont

“Thank you ever so much for creating Front Porch Forum. It is an awesome link within our community. We are fortunate that you have made this available to us all here in Vermont. I often tell others from different States about FPF, and the usual reaction is that their jaw drops, their eyes begin to sparkle and their mouths open to utter ‘wish we had that in our area… what a fabulous idea.’ So again THANK YOU.”

How did this Vermonter find a buyer for his classic Jag in the Bahamas?

From Brian on the Waterbury FPF…

I sold my classic Jaguar! The woman who bought it for her husband has a place in Stowe but read my series of postings at their other home in Nassau, The Bahamas!

I advertised the car in the Burlington Free Press, Craigslist and Hemmings Motor News… Response : nothing.

I must have had a dozen on Front Porch Forum.

Woodstock Front Porch Forum a hit

“Last week I posted 3 items on FPF and sold two of the three within a couple of days to very nice neighbors who I had not previously met…  FPF truly simulates a ‘neighborhood’ as other venues do not.”

Monkey the Cat back home thanks to caring neighbors

“Monkey’s five-day adventure brought her all the way from Birchcliff Parkway to Locust Terrace. She has a gash on her ear but otherwise seems to be in good health. With the help of Front Porch Forum and our caring neighbors, she is home now and we couldn’t be happier.”
