In these tough times, many small business owners have to work somewhere else to support their venture. In most cases, they use similar skills to generate additional income. For instance, Cori Giacomazzi, owner of Wandering Wardrobe, a tiny vintage shop in Skagway, Alaska works part-time as the costume curator for the brothel museum inside the Red Onion Saloon. A skilled seamstress and fashion designer, Giacomazzi restores original pieces and recreates the antique corsets and gaudy dresses worn by "Working girls" in the 1800s. Tour guides who show visitors around the museum wear her replica costumes.
