There are also several other sites that offer pretty much the same services...

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!
