I'm setting up a new site which I want to run as a sort of exchange for collectable items.

Lets say it's old computers (It's not!)

The site would have a list of old computers with a we buy at and we sell at -

spectum 48k rubber keyboard - we sell 75 we buy 55
SNES - we sell 50 we buy 20

ETC.. prices subject to a downward change for imperfections on a 1-10 scale. All postage and packing at customers cost.

What do people think about the idea? Is there likely to be problems I'm not seeing? Are there sites already out there that do this?

Sounds reasonable. Why not do it on a local basis and get links from all those local websites? Many people are still scared of the web and if they can deal locally youwill find it easier to win their confidence.

Depending on the exact widgets you'll be working with, this project could turn into a price guide sort of thing. I know that I have done Internet searches for specific objects in an attempt to see how old they are, and what they're worth. I've run across several that will show you the object, and then ask a fee to get current prices.

Particularly if your widgets are fairly unique, by using common sense SEO, you might end up with a lot of visitors.

Good Luck!
