What's the Strangest sale you've ever made on Amazon?

    Have you ever had something ordered from one of your links and ever been taken aback, or left thinking 'they really sell that'?

    This week I had someone obviously going hiking in Bear country ordering items. How do I know this? The person ordered a Frontiersman Bear Deterrent with Holster. I didn't even know that you could buy those.

    In my defence I do come from a country where a lot of things can kill you but bears are not among them. ;-)

      We are not counting those really wild and dangerously rabid Koala bear types???? Those 'Drop Bears' ???????? NO? Not this type of bear ? lol

        Now, Jase, you know we don't talk about them because they hysteria they could cause among tourists. We're used to them, but the world isn't really ready for them. It's hard enough convincing them that the Drop Bears are in fact just really well aimed branches from Gum Trees which fall down all the time, and they just have to watch really carefully for them! ;-)

    I think that the strangest thing anyone has purchased off Amazon through one of my links is cockroach bait and killer.  I have never written a hub on insect extermination, but there may be money in it! I have to say that as long as they are buying, I really don't mind what it is that they are purchasing!

    My weirdest sale was actually a hair loss cover up makeup item. I didn't know they made cover up makeup for hair loss hmm Was worth a bit tho wink

    I actually wrote a hub on it after although it doesn't get much traffic. I guess people impulse buy something like that as opposed to searching for it to buy? Weird hmm

    Oh and at the time I had no hubs even remotely related to hair loss yikes

    Poop Freeze Spray (for dogs).

    I also once sold a bunch of kindle books about domination, submission and dominatrix stuff. I always wondered what hub that came from! big_smile
