LETTERS: In praise of honesty

Editor:

A week ago Sunday, I put some small items on the curb with a sign that said. “Miscellaneous for Sale – apply within.”

Each item had a price sticker on it.

We went for an ice cream cone to Crescent Beach and, on our return, noticed that every item was gone. My husband said “oh oh” – someone helped themselves.

The sign was gone.

To our amazement, it was sitting on the corner of the mat at the front door and money was under the sign.

Just had to share this wonderful story in praise of honesty and thanks to the people involved.
