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!”
