HI Nmd and welcome to HP.
I read through it and offer the following:
It is a little short
the sentence, ".. that happy little feeling us women get when we go shopping and find a great item..."
should read : "...that happy little feeling we women get when we go shopping and find a great item..."
"Also, in the area of Michigan I was from; if you wanted to have a yard sale you were required to pay about $12.00 for a permit each time. In Tennessee, at least where we live in Tennessee, you can have a yard sale as often as you like"
implies that in TN you have to pay $12 to have a yard sale but can have as many as you'd like. (misplaced modifier) I believe what you intended was:
" Where we live in TN there is no charge for having a yard sale, therefore you can have as many as you want!"
Moreover, do not use zero's when writing money. It should be $12, not $12.00 (see my latest article on grammar)
And in that same sentence the semicolon is improper. Use a comma or nothing at all or restructure the sentence: "Moreover, I was from an area in Michigan that required a surcharge of $12 if you wanted to host a yard sale!"
Good start! And truthfully made me want to go browse my local consignment shops - which is what matters most I believe.
Thanks alot for the input, I will definitely work on the grammar.

I've been on here for 9 months and followed all the advice from the learning centre, forums and hubs from the best hubbers. I earned the first $24.00 in the first month and I'm only $1.00 ahead for the next eight. What am I doing wrong? All help will be greatfully received.

Long, long ago, it was easy to write a hub. This is what I did:Spent two days producing 1500 words or so. Got the page about 80 percent right. Published it.After a couple of weeks, if the visitors started coming from the search engines, I would put in a few more hours editing and improving. The...

I recently published this hub...but it was not deemed of a high enough quality. Only trouble is, you get very little feedback to why that is. Would anyone care to hazard a guess for me? This is the first hub I have written that has not been featured. Here is the...

I am not a regular hub-maker. I am just commenting on some topics which interests me... mostly political, family, religion. But some of my comments are not taken for unknown reasons. I am not going to gain anything if you take it; I am also not going to lose if my comments are deleted. ...
