Why I buy from Amazon?

My Favorite Online Store


I have no problems saying Amazon.com is my favorite online store to purchase from.  I buy online a lot.  Mostly because being in a wheelchair makes shopping at brick and mortar companies pretty difficult for me.  Its a lot of trouble loading my wheelchair and myself in my car and then driving to a regular store, unloading my wheelchair and myself and then rolling myself into the store and then pushing a cart or holding  a basket with my selections and then getting it all back in my vehicle and driving home again.  Then, once back at my home, getting my purchases from my vehicle to inside my home is yet another time consuming chore.

Cold Press Coffee Maker


For the last few weeks of 2019, my husband and I have been talking about cold press coffee.  He had read an article in Consumer Reports on them and became interested.  When he asked me about them and I read that cold press coffee was less bitter, I became interested also.  I’ve always thought the smell of coffee perking was awesome!  However, when I drink that coffee, I’m disappointed with the bitterness I taste.  I’ve tried various types of coffee and found all to be quite bitter and never living up to the “promise of the magnificent aroma”.

Get The Last Family Gifts Right here On Our Mall.

I just finished my Christmas gift shopping online last night.  I do most of my shopping online because I’m in a wheelchair and its so much more fun and easier to shop online and have it delivered right to my door.  I shop mostly on Amazon – the Worlds Largest Online Retailer.  I love to shop there because the choices are endless and my Amazon Prime subscription gets my orders here so quickly – usually within two days.  I also use Amazon all the time to find and download books for my kindle (I’m a voracious reader!).  I have Kindle Unlimited and I can try all kinds of books and new authors for free.  I select the many, many free books from new authors and even well-known authors also.  It’s perfect for my reading habit.

The Seasonal Sale Shop here on the Bella Vista Online Mall is now updated for Christmas.  I’ve spent quite a bit of time selecting possible gift choices.  You can go there and see what I’ve selected this year.  Or just check out any of the other many Shops from the “Our Shops” dropdown menu.
