Sounds like a great idea. However, you can use eBay for the same  
purpose. As a buyer, if you log in to eBay and search for "SCA" as a  
keyword, you get lots of hits. As a seller, all you need to do is  
include "SCA" in the auction title and description.

A separate, non-fee-based website might be a great alternative,  
however. I wonder how you'd fund it, though, if it wasn't either fee- 
based or hosted ads. Out of your pocket? PayPal donations? Just  
thinking out loud...

Good luck in any case!

Kind regards,
