One Response to Cabochons

  1. i’m definately thinking of starting an online business. i know nothing about
    it. i want to sell rhinestone jewelry exclusively, because i know nothing about the drop shipping business, i’m very leary about selling a product to the consumer that i never get to see. is this how it works? where can i go to learn more about starting an online business.
