Just Classified Ads

Dear Neighbors:

I would appreciate a read from posters on the response they are receiving from their ads. I would hope that folks forward the ads to folks not on the list--one of the easy things to do with email--and that this would bump up sales. But some real feedback would be helpful.


Also free! Short movie reviews and movie discussion. To subscribe, send an email message to and note the name of the newsletter in the subject line or body of the text.
