Default Wait Tim, I'm not done yet.

Go to google, search for dry cleaners and alterations to see what is near you.

Find one which offers both...and you have a beginning of a NETWORK. Now, you can find curtains, drapes and have them altered, and cleaned and get a premium price.

Sometimes, you'll find baby rooms, and when the baby outgrows the crib and is ready for some little boy/girl makeover, you can pick up everything and offer it as a bundle.

Cute little boys in blue curtains can be traded for spiderman stuff and when they outgrow spiderman (some of us never do)...

Especially affluent parents like to keep their kids happy, and so you'll see lots of new curtains and drapes being bought and sold...

The TAILOR/ALTERATIONS person you find, and they don't have to be with a dry cleaner, most are work at home types...can also do wedding dresses, prom dressers and tuxedos too...and there is a parade of life element to it...prom dress is a one time deal...but, there is always a prom next year.

So, you may buy some curtains, ask about anything else they may be selling, you never know...but with a alterations person, you can now customize the custom made drapes for someone else, and throw in free dry cleaning, or a coupon for half price.

Likewise, if you see a name brand, like an eddie bauer high chair, you can BUNDLE this with other kid items, and increase your profits.

Good for looking, the more you look, the more you'll see and just a little bit of part-time sleuthing, could be a great source for some sweet cash in your pocket.
