Details
Feathers are used in arrow making and fishing, and are always in demand on the Grand Exchange. They are much cheaper in shops than on the GE, so a profit can be made easily by buying feathers from shops and selling on the GE. They are also sold in feather packs by the same merchants.
  1. Teleport to the Lumbridge lodestone, and purchase all 1,000 feathers and 5 feather packs from Lumbridge Fishing Supplies, just northwest of the lodestone.
  2. Teleport to the Port Sarim lodestone, and do the same with Gerrant's Fishy Business immediately north of the lodestone.
  3. Teleport to the Al Kharid lodestone, and run south to the Shantay Pass. Buy 1,000 feathers and 5 feather packs from Shantay.
  4. Teleport to the Draynor Village lodestone and go north into Draynor Manor. Purchase 1,000 feathers and 5 feather packs from Ava (after completing Animal Magnetism).
  5. Teleport to the Ardougne lodestone and head north-west into the Fishing Guild (with 68 Fishing or above). Players with a Skills necklace or a Fishing Guild Teleport can use these to teleport to the Fishing Guild. Buy 1,000 feathers and 5 feather packs from the Fishing Guild Shop.
  6. Teleport to the Fremennik Province lodestone and head west into the Rellekka marketplace. Buy 1,000 feathers and 5 feather packs from Fremennik Fishmonger (after completing The Fremennik Trials).
  7. With access to Etceteria, purchase 1,000 feathers and 5 feather packs from the Island Fishmonger on Etceteria Fish. A planted Spirit tree can be used to get there quicker.
  8. With access to Miscellania, purchase 1,000 feathers and 5 feather packs from the Island Fishmonger. The Ring of wealth can be used to quickly teleport there.
  9. Teleport to the Oo'glog lodestone and purchase 1,000 feathers and 5 feather packs from the Gift Shop inside the city (after completing As a First Resort).
  10. With access to Menaphos, purchase 1,000 feathers and 5 feather packs from Meena. The Menaphos Lodestone can be used to quickly teleport there.
  11. With access to Shilo Village, purchase 1,000 feathers and 5 feather packs from Fernahei's Fishing Hut. Players with Karamja gloves 3 or higher can use them to quickly teleport there. Alternatively, the Slayer Cape teleport to Duradel (Lapalok after While Guthix Sleeps) can be used.

Sell everything on the Grand Exchange, or use to fletch headless arrows for more profit.

Although the feather packs take 60 hours to respawn, the feathers restock on a daily basis, meaning they can be collected every day for an additional 66000 coins profit.
