Top 6 Things Yakima Valley Is Buying Online Lately

There's lots of places in Yakima Valley to buy things in person but sometimes we gotta get what we need and try buying online. We have many wonderful local places to buy stuff in person, places like the mall, retail outlets, local grocers, and boutique stores. The pandemic, however, encouraged and in some cases, forced, many of us to buy our household necessities online and well, some of us haven’t stopped using Amazon, Ebay, Poshmark, and other direct store websites.


We asked some of our listeners what was the last thing they bought on Amazon just to get a gauge of what folks are spending their money on these days, and it looks like ‘tis the season for buying holiday stuff, gifts, and frivolous indulgence items.


The last thing I bought was a LeJonquille Toys Bubble Maker machine with bubble solution in bulk for my nephew who lives in Oklahoma, and a book for my daughter, The Boy Who Painted the World by Melody J. Bremen. I got them on Amazon because I knew they would arrive quickly. I also bought my brother a Sir Mix-A-Lot Funko Pop doll!
