From the obscure to the rarely used items in your home, people find what they need when asking their neighbors on Front Porch Forum.
“I recently saw a post for someone wanting to borrow a large black light for an event. Now I’m not saying nobody has one, but really, who has one laying around that works? Such an obscure random request I thought, but I had one that fit the bill and is brand new, so I emailed and they picked it up, he said the kids had a BLAST and even brought me a gift which probably costs more than the light! This (FPF) is such an asset when it comes to really cool, random items for sale, for free or wanted to borrow and the fact that it’s SO local….you just NEVER know what you’ll find!” • Steven in Shelburne
“Sincere thanks for the many offers of crutches to borrow. Thanks to FPF and wonderful neighbors I am all set.” • Greg in Charlotte
“Thanks to all who responded to my request to borrow a walker. The number of responses speaks volumes to how generous and supportive this community is. All the wishes for a speedy recovery were also much appreciated.” • Hugh in Starksboro
“I want to thank the many generous FPF people in our community who responded to my post a few weeks ago requesting to borrow some medical items needed for upcoming surgery.” • Lois in Winooski
“Wow, thank you to everyone who responded offering to let me borrow their snowshoes. What a generous community we have! I have made arrangements to borrow a pair, so I am all set. Thank you again to everyone who offered.” • Martha in Shelburne
