Yup, comin’ from Maine, it’s no wonder I have some olde school tendencies that come with the turf.
Don’t know if ya’ botha’ to watch TV the reality show “DownEast Dickering”, where there is a weekly trading magazine
Uncle Henry’s is a weekly publication that is sort of like a booklet garage sale that has a lot of items being sold, bartered, traded etc..
Their main office was located just 600 yards from where I used to live in Augusta, Maine so getting the magazine was easy.
They did not release it though till all the local stores had their deliveries. Got the dibbs’ on em’ though cause there was a line waiting for the Augusta
office to open as the local stores did not have the booklets out on the shelves out jest’ yet.
Mighty fine deals if ya’ know how to dicker.
Anyways, it’s still in my blood as when moving up here I gave the idea of an “Uncle Henry’s” type of publication to a friend of mine but they could not make it work out.
If someone were to grab the idea I’m sure that it would catch on! Uncle Henry’s is well aware of someone in Alaska trying to replicate their doings and I have to say I’m part guilty of the idea.
Would someone jest’ start somethin’ so I can get back to normal?
Been asked over the years for many an odd request for a stove trade. Made some, refused some and gave some away.
Oh well have a great day!
