Thanks for friends and neighbors

Neighbors and friends continue to support the work we do.

“We are so grateful for this great way to reach you! We use Front Porch Forum a lot to let folks know about our rental cottage and we always find GREAT people through FPF. It feels safe and fun to rent our place this way and we have just become contributing members on a monthly basis to help keep FPF available to us all!  It’s super easy to do, and you can choose the payment amount that works for you!” • Peg in Calais

Seeking hard-to-find item? Try buying used from neighbors

“Hi all. I want 4 shepard’s hook style pole for hanging plants, etc. I need them to be at least 48″ tall, taller would be fine. Before I buy new, thought I’d see if anyone has some they’d like to sell.”
• Doreen, Berlin FPF

“Just like that! I am no longing seeking hooks. A neighbor had some that were far more elaborate than I could have wished for and at an extremely reasonable price. Thanks Brian, and thanks Front Porch Forum for connecting us all!”
• Doreen, Berlin FPF, next day


Need new rocking chair in St. Johnsbury? Sell your boots

“I’m writing to let you know how much I like FPF. I read it everyday!  Such a wonderful way to connect with local folks.
On Sunday I posted a pair of boots for sale and a request for a rocking chair to buy.
On Monday I sold the boots and got 4 responses about rocking chairs.
Today I spent the money I got from the boot sale on a wonderful rocking chair and had $5 leftover.
Another Front Porch Forum success story.”
• Bonnie, Saint Johnsbury FPF



Grateful for engaged neighbors in Winooski

Thank you to the folks who dutifully post our happenings, thoughts, advertisements and questions on the Winooski Front Porch Forum. Everything I have ever desired to sell has gone quickly and safely through advertising on the FPF. And, so it was again that my sofa and chair disappeared in record time.

It is time to donate to FPF as thanks, and I intend to make good on that promise. Expect my check this week. Thanks so much!

• Lynne, Winooski FPF



St. Albans FPF… fantastic!

Earlier I posted a “FOR RENT” posting for my step-daughter for her house on the St. Albans City Front Porch Forum.

We were inundated with requests.

She has rented it and I appreciate all those who responded to my posting.  Thanks.
