1. Start an antique business ($15K/month)

For those targeting the elite class, the notion of owning an antique and vintage business can be fulfilling and profitable.

Antique businesses focus on procuring items at a low price and restoring them, then selling them at a profit. The items can include old toys, cars, bikes, household items, crafts, vintage jewelry, etc.

Opening an antique item store may seem somewhat daunting. However, once you have researched the items available and acquired the necessary skills and expertise, you will be ready to kick off.

For some, a storefront with enough storage for antique items might fit the bill. For others, an online store will work pretty well. Regardless of your approach, the secret is applying your entrepreneurship strategies to an overall framework for success.

Case Study

In 2013 I decided to start a company where I would restore antiques and antique toys. After 25 years of working in education and information technologies, I decided to cash out my 401K savings to start Hoosierboy Restorations. I began in my mother's garage and quickly began receiving projects to restore. I quickly outgrew the small 2 car garage and expanded my operations to my present 2200 sq.ft. facility.

7 years later, we have restored hundreds of projects. Everything from 100-year-old toys, to historical furniture, to a T-33 Airforce jet ejection seat.

2. Start an online rug store ($32K/month)

Online rug stores sell fine hand-woven or hand-dyed antique rugs, carpets, and textiles. Some potential customers looking to purchase exceptional old rugs, carpets, and materials are auctions, collectors, academics, museum curators, and homeowners.

If you are a home décor enthusiast, purchase and resell rare and important rugs or carpets online or even open a store in the neighborhood. If you are starting, always begin with a nearby product, something local or with close suppliers. Costs will be less, and probably logistics problems will go near zero.

Also, take controlled risks, as it's easier to test and fail cheaper than ever. Online services and tools make you ready to launch with a few bucks, so go try, sell and take feedback. Probably, you are nearer than you think to success.

As you advance, source fine textiles and fragments of rugs from Europe, Persia, India, Turkey, Morocco, China, and other countries respected for their rug-making expertise.

Market your rugs and carpets online or open a local rugs store targeting rug and tag run & carpet lovers.
