“Our thanks to both Front Porch Forum, which proved its worth once again, and Martin and Scott who rescued us this morning and got all the furniture back in place.”

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!”
