    1. Selling Fossils

If you prefer to get money by selling Fossils instead of donating them, no one will stop you. Selling them can also be done if some Fossils that you have cannot be donated to the museum. It has been known that Blathers cannot accept multiple of the same kind of fossils so there might be spare fossils left over. These spare Fossils can be sold at Nook’s Cranny so that you can get a decent amount of cash. Selling them at Nook’s Cranny can be done even at the start of the game.
