I ended up using the turnip exchange to sell at 598 last week. Waited in queue for about 30 minutes and dropped a nook miles ticket as a tip.

It's no 1000 bells, but it's actually doable.

Where’s that?

It's a place where people can make a queue for people to visit their island and sell. Usually they ask for a small tip for their trouble, but some don't.

Common restrictions are no wetsuits for the visitors. I still don't understand why, but I complied.

That piqued my curiosity so I googled it. Apparently some players like to protect rare flowers and other valuable items by fencing off most of the island. They were rudely surprised by the swimming update, which allows visitors to jump off the airport pier and go pretty much anywhere.

Some of the ads on Turnip Exchange are hilarious. "Fee = 1 bag bells (99,000)"

I bought a healthy number of Turnips this week, but the prophet already ruled out a large spike for me this week, so I'm hoping someone will have a decent price sometime. I'm trying to get enough bells for my daughter to pay off her loan and get a basement.

The prophet says I'm 62% large spike, 31% decreasing. So it's quite likely I'll either have a good price or need a bailout.

Holy crap, so many Gulliver visits.

Congrats, that's a nice looking robot! Can you customize the color with a customization kit?

So far I've managed to get peaches, coconuts, oranges and cherries on my island. Does anybody out there have pears and apples they'd be willing to share? I believe I have some of the above in storage in exchange.

Dodo Code: GV22R
Buying turnips at 440 until 10 pm Eastern tonight.

Roses to water are past Nook's on the left, watering cans provided.

All fruits available, just ask...

I have a couple trips worth. On my way. Thank you!!

Yes, you can pick a color. It takes 50(!) customization kits. Which takes a little while and a lot of Nookling chatter to buy.

RJ, thanks for the turnip price and fruit. Greatly appreciated.

So I was kind of exhausted with the game, and I decided to reboot my island. I might have been a bit drunk when I did it.

Did you delete your save or terraform and flatten it?

Deleted my save. Back to square one.

Yeah I did the same. I've enjoyed replaying it after deleting my save. Notably I've enjoyed not rushing to unlock terraforming or feeling like I should keep up with anyone. I'm just playing it the way I did New Leaf. Turn it on for 20 minutes a day and pick some fruit, do some fishing, etc. I plan to do a little terraforming at some point with this save, but very minimal. First save I moved rivers. I'm not going to do that this time. I'm going to play it more organically.

No way am I EVER deleting my save! Now that I have lovely Flora! (Thanks to Red and her son, here) I've been sadly neglecting Flora and the other animals in my town due to my slackness about getting my joycon fixed, but I know she's there waiting for me!

(Plus, I still really like my town and still have lots to do all around the island!)

From a relatively new player's perspective, there seem to be lots of long-term goals, like fully populating the museum and fully upgrading your home/town.

I can't even imagine how much time/effort it takes to get one's island as developed as RedJen's.

Also if you need / want some bells or DIYs just say the word.

Yep, I'm still kicking around decoration ideas. It took me the longest time to get to the point that I felt I had enough stuff (flowers, furniture, etc.) to actually seriously start on the process and now it's a maybe-on-the-weekend or can't-sleep-at-night thing. Other than that I check turnip prices, what's for sale, and whomever might be visiting that day.

I've tried to work with the landscape I got and most of my work has gone into flower gardens. (blue rose yet eludes me)

Today my Able Sisters are selling Mage's boots if people are looking for them.

Dodo: 1YB6B

I'm looking for people to water roses inside the "Water Here" area. - tools provided

I've added a new personal character and I'm looking for Cute furniture in Blue & Sky Blue (I have the bed for both)

I'd love to buy some mage boots (only have white) but it seems like your gates are closed.

I believe I have some cute items sitting in my storage. I'll send them your way when I'm on tomorrow.

Are we dressing up this fine Halloween?

It's fun to see all my islanders dressed up, I am sad Isabelle doesn't get to participate.

Thanks! The table especially was a great add.

Ha, looks like somebody thinks she can shame me into changing out of my Halloween getup.

Anyone with left over turnips, my Nook's are buying at 104 for a modest profit/loss.
