Sold my first big-ticket item!

    I've been doing really well with Amazon this holiday season, but have been mainly selling lots of little, inexpensive things. Well, today finally one of my hubs on more expensive items took off and I sold something! I'm especially pleased because it's an item that's important to me so I was very passionate in my product review. I like to think that it was my copy that sealed the deal.

    I know a lot of people are getting frustrated because things are slowing down right now (they are for me, as well), but keep in mind that even if you don't have a good $$ day every day, that the big days will add up.

    I apologize if this seems like I'm bragging, but I don't know who else to share my excitement with, who will understand! When I tell my non-HP friends these things, they get confused about what the heck I have to do with Amazon, LOL.

    I wrote a hub about flutes. I play professionally so it was important to me to write about my instrument.

    Good for you and happy to see you brag, it gives us more the reason to stick around. Everytime I decide giving up on Amazon I hear this stories which help us be motivated. Happy Holidays Naomi.

    Yes, I sold a beginner flute. I only hope that the person uses it well and really learns how to play the instrument ... and then comes back and buys a professional level flute from me, LOL.

    Happy holidays, everyone.
