Thank you guys.

You've given me some very helpful advice.

(I have to admit that I have been getting some pretty dodgy emails from my Craigslist listing...)

I like the idea of the good exposure eBay gives but Fred Miranda & other photo forums are part of a larger photographic community that is quite different from eBay etc.  I will have to do more homework into the fee structure and setting up some sort of reserve prices on auctions etc.  OTOH, dealing locally would be nice too in that there is no shipping to worry about and I can make sure the buyer has a chance to properly handle & inspect the item(s) prior to the sale.  Quite frankly though, Vancouver Island is not that densely populated & there may not be that big a local market at any one time for many of these specialized items.
