A member of the Brooklynian message board posted that two police officers shut down her modest stoop sale on Saturday after telling her she didn't have the required license.
The poster, called QueenJ on the message board, said the police first told her "You can't do this here," before asking if she had a license. She said the items she had for sale at her home Flatbush Ave. near Grand Army Plaza consisted of, "a bike, some clothes, some dishes and a floor lamp."
Stoop sales are legal in New York state and according to the tax form for "casual sales," a seller does not have to report amounts profits of $600 or lower.
A call to the NYPD was not answered.
