I placed an as in the Uncle Henry's for two snowmobiles and a trailer this week. Yes I know it's late June but I didn't want the snowmobiles anymore and thought since the ad was free I had nothing to lose.
I got eight calls and three emails on those anowmobiles in two days! I couldn't believe it.
A man from Dexter came down and purchased them.
I never thought you could sell snowmobiles in the summer! Only in Maine.

I hadn't heard of Uncle Henry's (no real surprise there), I'm glad you mentioned it. Wow, what a great resource. I'll be sure it use it come house hunting time, and when we're ready to get the sheep and chickens we plan on keeping.
Thanks

It really is an amazing resource. I can't tell you how many things I have bought and sold through it over the years. I know I've bought guns, an antique kitchen wood stove, a snowmobile, two motorcycles, a moped,an ice auger, and lots more! it is "The Maine Bible" as they call it!

I love Uncle Henry's. Have bought and sold horses through there, and other items as well. Got a couple of my dogs through their ads. I am going to miss it dearly when we move.

One thing I'm noticing about Mainers is that they have their own special websites, like that one and MaineToday, which seem more popular that something like Craigslist. That's special.

We've bought the kids first cars, my sons first bass boat and old snowmobiles back in the day. The best thing we ever got was during the ice storm of 98' was in the free to good home section - a lovely dalmation. We traveled quite a ways over the ice covered roads to get her. "Candy" was wonderful and my sons very best friend and fishing partner for years.
RIP Candy, old girl.

We used to all wait at the store on Thursdays at noon. Looking for goodies!

The store up the road from us was getting their Uncle Henry's a day early as they had someone in the Post Office sorting them and bringing them on Wednesday. People complained and Uncle Henry's told them they wouldn't send them to them any more if they didn't put them out on Thursday like the rest of the state.

They are supposed to come out at noon on Thursdays, but they snip the binder at sunrise here. No, I won't blow their cover.

Anybody know where I can get a single bottom plow for a 3 point hitch? I have been watching Uncle Henry's for months.

Well technically it's Wednesday night after midnight so it is really Thursday morning.
I have been an online subscriber for four years now. When they first started the online thing it was available a day early but too many people complained.
