Neighbors are using their local Front Porch Forums to request and share grocery store stamps to apply toward new pots and pans… and it’s working!
From Mary on the Northfield FPF…
So .. I only had 27 extra stamps and almost didn’t post them thinking that is just not enough to bother with. But dang it, maybe, just maybe, they would put someone over the top to get one of those nice pans. Had to try. As it turned out it will help TWO ladies reach their goal! Thanks, FPF!
And Julia on the Montpelier FPF…
Thank you, kind Montpelier folks. I had several gracious offers, throughout last evening–and have my new 3 qt. pot! If you need some stamps, post it! — offers will come. FPF is terrific, and so is our sense of community. Gotta love it.
