I read Maria Brown's column in the Sept. 2 issue about a woman who had a garage sale and had things taken from it. I feel bad for her and I know exactly how she feels. My husband and I did one for Garage Sale Mania this summer. Now that he's retired he thought he'd put some of his collectables out, and it was so busy it was hard to watch everyone. Unfortunately, he had a couple of his case knives stolen at around $150-200 each. We called the police and they came but nothing came of it. We didn't get them back. Now we had cameras installed and hopefully it never happens again. But Linda (the woman who Maria wrote about) is right things are tough and we should be helping each other, not stealing from each other. What's wrong with this world? Work together for God's sake help each other.
I just wanted Linda to know that she's not alone.We got taken too. And another thing, Maria is right, too. The thieves usually don't read the paper—they're too busy trying to figure out who they can steal from next.
