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!
