    1. The ebay market has been around for so long that the opportunity to arbitrage has been diminished. You'd be better off searching local car-boot sales for someone off-loading their grown-up children's Pokemon trading cards.

    2. Making trinkets and jewellery from junk. You can buy this sort of stuff at every market in Europe. Also you'd need to have some practical skills to make something worth buying.

    3. Post-redirection. Every business centre in the land does this. There's no money in it. You could create an "Email To Post" service that would allow the customer to "email" a letter ( that you would print, put in an envelope and post ). So if you wanted to send a letter to dear, old, granny you could from the comfort of your iphone. Also handy if you wanted to send a letter from one country to another ( have local offices that do the print-out-and-post in each country, thereby avoiding airmail ).

    I once wrote a POC of a Windows Printer driver to do such a thing. It would let you "Print To Post" from Windows. Couldn't be arsed to finish it. Concept is easy enough.

    4. Kebabs direct. Well that's Deliveroo. Linking restaurants and take-aways to their customers. They got $275M of funding in August of last year so competing against them would be "a challenge".
    Oh bugger, with Id seen that thing about online arbitrage before I set up my Amazon FBA account a few weeks back then I wouldn’t have done £2k in sales since then.

    Oh well, live and learn, live and learn.

    Well done. You should always ignore the naysayers and trust your own judgement.

    What is the profit on 2k of sales?

    How is the sledge market going?

    You should open up in Salisbury so that Russians who come to visit it in March won’t be put off by snow
