Opening a retail store that buys, sells and trades collectable coins and stamps is a good business venture for the hobbyist coin and stamp collector to get going. The store doesn't need a great amount of square footage, as the inventory is compact. As a method to reduce startup and operating costs, consider a joint venture with another retailer. Good matches for this type of shared retail space include pawnshops, comic book retailers, and memorabilia stores. As is the case with any retail venture, the goal is to buy low and sell high; thus, you must possess strong negotiation skills and have experience identifying the condition and value of coins and stamps.
