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.
