I can't really see beyond it been a money making exercise, i think the people who built stone circles would have hated money, i'm sorry but this whole thing gives me an uneasy feeling, but i suppose in this day and age nothing is sacred anymore.
Well there was no commerce involved, no products to buy at the site, it was built for the event to happen with a completely different event and space for the commerce which would be much more suitable to discuss on the village pump or unsung given it's nature.
There are plenty of evidence for goods and tokens, and later money at sacred sites though, all the way though from precious stones, grave goods and later coins right through to the roman era. Depends on which site your thinking of specifically or your theory on who was doing the building at which time in pre-history.
