Think of seasonal trends -
No matter what time of year, there is always something seasonal going on. Make a list of upcoming holidays, national and/or local events, weather changes, news stories, etc.
Find a niche product or service -
For each seasonal trend you have listed, try to think of a niche product or service you can sell that is unique and desired at the same time. Research online and locally to find areas with few competitors.
Find as many products as possible in this niche -
Find products in the niche seasonal area. Call up manufacturers and retailers to find out if you can become a distributor for their products. Explain your business idea and negotiate a large percentage for each sale. Arrange for manufacturer or reseller to drop ship the products directly to customers. (Make sure the prices you charge account for shipping costs.)
Create a simple website -

If you have existing contacts, spread the word about your products to them and refer the to your website to purchase. If not, you can adverise on forums that allow product advertising, Google Adwords, and article marketing.
Sell many products -
Because you are selling products that are seasonal, you have a high chance of quick conversions.
Bring in sales from the website and contact the product retailer to ship out each sale.
