Thousands of business recommendations flow through Front Porch Forum

“A few weeks ago I posted on our Front Porch Forum seeking recommendations for XC boots in our area, and several people wrote to say Onion River Sports was the place to go. So we went there and, sure enough, my sister found the perfect boots. The salesperson patiently helped her get fitted properly, and, after years of XC skiing, she says these are the best boots she’s ever had. Yay for Onion River Sports and FPF posters. Thanks again!”

“Special thank you to our ‘Forum Family'” from Morrisville retailer

“Can’t tell you how much I appreciate all the visits to my wife’s little gift-shop as she goes thru all the emotions of closing her place after 15 wonderful years. It’s been a rough time for her. All your visits, purchases and words of encouragement have helped more than you can ever know. Still 2 more days left. Friday and Saturday (behind the Village Victorian B&B on Union Street, Morrisville). Plenty of great gifts at incredible prices. Stop by. Say hi to ellen and wish her the best in her next great adventure. Thank you.”

How to sell a used car in Vermont

“Car sold.  This was the only place I advertised! Whew, that was easy. Thanks Front Porch Forum.”
• David, Fairfax FPF

“The big surprise was FPF’s finding local buyers for our used car. Craigslist and commercial used-car-sales services with hundreds of listings produced no calls after a month. We gave it a shot on FPF. Result: Satisfied local buyers who could inspect the car thoroughly and conveniently, and us as happy sellers with no concerns about transaction security.”
