Morals…a thing of the past
Amelia is a born huckster. And, you gotta feed the fanny pack guppies something, amiright?
Pet Rocks. Nuff said.
With inflation she needs to raise her prices once a week.
Anyone notice how in the last panel it says Peach Stone?
I’m surprised Spud’s not in line.
Everbody must get stoned.
Everybody gonna get stoned. If you’re going to use Bob Dylan, ya gotta get it right.
How does it feel, Wallace? Like a rolling stone!
Today’s missing panel is Amelia looking for rocks and thinking of $…. Will needs to insist that these large panels be included on Sundays…
Before anyone criticizes Amelia think, how many gift shops at the beach sell sea shells, and are there people buying them? And the seller is probably named Sally…
Amelia is a financial genius. And an evil genius too.
Amelia has the right idea: it’s not her fault that some tourists are too naive or ignorant to realize she’s selling repackaged stone pebbles they can get at by themselves. Morals has nothing to do with it.
Yes, you should charge more.
Hey—there’s a reason tourist traps exist.
Amelia is starting to remind me of Hawthorne (from Sherman’s Lagoon).
Consider a ‘premium’ limited edition with “My parents went to Rhode Island and all they got me was this dumb rock”
No Sand Dollars, Amelia? You could charge double for those.
Rhode Island? And all this time I kept assuming they were closer to Maine…..
A clowder of cats, a murder of crows and an idiocy of tourists.
When she’s old enough, Amelia gonna star lookin’ around for a grifter college…
Fanny pack guppies… LOL
The seagull always has the same expression as Wallace

Amelia—Add “curated” to the description and add 10% to the price!
Every summer it’s something new for Amelia, she needs to develop a pyramid scheme with other SH kids on her previous scams. Also needs a rock polisher (tumbler) for “gem” quality stones.
So many tourist places you are not allowed to take rocks or such items. So you buy it from Amelia and the “crime” is on her.
Put a frame around the natural beauty that’s otherwise ignored, and you can give it a value. The tourists are willing to pay to have it pointed out to them, if they don’t scrutinize what’s underfoot on their own.
My cousin has a two story rock fireplace that contains rocks he collected from all over the world.
“Fannie Pack Guppies” would be at least a workable band name
