The Ladies were a bit reluctant to attend the first Erie County Fair, in 1841, so officials announced: "Constables will be on grounds to preserve order and the visits of the ladies will be welcomed to the exhibition."

Unfortunately, this highly stressful scenario is not uncommon, and it will likely happen to every one of us at some point during our lives. Not only are you faced with selling a house, but the entire contents of the house as well.
