Then rent space at antique cooperatives or set up a stall at a weekend fairs to sell your antiques.
2. Custom jewellery and accessories - Put your creative talents to work designing custom jewellery and accessories. Whether you work with sterling silver or recycled metals, clay or papier-ma^che´, there's a market for your custom earrings, pins, bracelets, necklaces and belt buckles at art shows, crafts fairs and holiday boutiques.
3. Garage, shed and attic cleaning/hauling service - Nobody likes to spend a weekend cleaning out the garage, attic or garden shed - it's dirty and time-consuming, and when it's done, there's still the task of hauling off all that discarded junk. But if you don't mind putting in the physical labour, a cleaning and hauling service can be a lot of fun. You can usually find a few treasures among the trash which most people are delighted to give away, and you can add to your income by recycling bottles, newspapers and metal castoffs. You'll need a pick-up truck or other vehicle capable of carrying everything from cast-iron sinks to old timbers.
4. Mobile window tint - With some training and basic equipment, you'll be seeing plenty of things clearly with your mobile window-tinting business. For best results, have a phone and van ready to help car, van, truck or home owners prevent heat damage to their vehicles/building interiors.
5. Personal trainer - Pumping iron; pumping profits. Australians of all ages, sizes and shapes want to keep fit, trim and healthy, and they're willing to hire their own personal coach to exercise correctly. Spread the word about your physical-fitness expertise at health spas, running, swimming and biking clubs, and other athletic outlets.
6. Picture framer - Get in the frame with a picture framing service. You can work with gallery owners, artists, portrait photographers and individuals who've purchased a print, painting or fine photo. If you aren't already a framing expert, read up, take classes at a local college or community centre, then assemble your tools - including clamps, saws, mitre boxes, glue, and a pneumatic or hand stapler. Establish relationships with local artists' groups, galleries, photographers and print shops that can give you their business or refer their customers to you.
7. Records search - Using specialised databases, you'll search public records on your computer to help your clients find lost loves, check out questionable suitors, track down debtors, verify a contractor's track record, or dig up facts on a business opportunity. Clients include attorneys, business owners and individuals.
