I haven't done much with my rock business this summer. I was flea-bitten (or something) and I didn't print up new business cards as planned, or place ads in the local shopper. I did, however, sell a couple of articles on birthstones and I made a handful of infomercials in the virtual world called SecondLife. Those were fun to do! I also acquired inventory through purchase and trade. I chose stones with an eye to jewelry making next winter. And the trade was great! Also, I now market Thunder Bay amethyst.
