The fourth Rice Mountain trade
I'm trying to use the internet to trade a grain of rice all the way up to a mountain. Get caught up here.
Hoo boy, do I have a trade to share today.
But first, a quick recap on the trades to date.
Trades so far
So far, I’ve made three trades:
A grain of rice for a paid Trends.VC report
The grab bag of books for a bunch of collectible items, including fossils and a signed copy of The Selfish Gene
This week’s trade
Ryan Thomas, a Stew’s Letter reader and master woodworker, made an irresistible offer for the dinosaur bone from the last trade.
He has offered design and build a custom coffee table for a Stew's Letter reader.
He can build you something like this (sold for $1,500):
Or this (sold for $1,750):
At the high end, this trade represents a 7.0x return on the last item and a 60.43 million times return on the grain of rice.
Let’s make a trade
So… who’s next?
Email me at email@example.com if you want to swap something for a hand-built, custom coffee or side table.
You'll get to work directly with a master woodworker to build the table of your dreams (assuming you dream about tables).
As a reminder, anybody who offers to help make a trade in any way will be invited to a huge opening party on Rice Mountain.
See ya there.
