selling rabbits to pet stores!!!

Does anyone sell rabbits to pet stores? If so, what breed and how many do you sell per month, year? Do you have to "do" anything special to sell them to the pet stores? anyone have any links with info about this?

Here in VA, one needs a license to sell more than $200 (or is it $500?) of rabbits annually to pet stores. Of course that doesn't apply if you sell the bunny directly to the new pet owner. Decided on a particular breed? Mini Rex, Holland Lops, and Netherland Dwarfs are quite popular in our area...I also saw a Lionhead at a pet shop not too long ago.
