Calling all handypeople with a homebased workshop; the time has never been better than now to start an antique furniture refinishing and repair business, as consumer demand has skyrocketed for antiques in a good state of repair. Once again, an antique furniture refinishing business can easily be operated right from a homebased workshop. Finding customers for the service can be as easy as attending antique auctions and sales and handing out business cards to people who have just purchased an antique piece of furniture that requires repairs or refinishing. Additionally, the service can be marketed by establishing alliances with antique retailers who can either use your service or act as a referral for your service to their customers. Purchasing antiques in poor condition yourself, refinishing, and selling them for a profit can also generate additional income.
