Might I recommend... A bartering post..

Although it doesn't seem like many of the items posted here linger too long until they're sold. I'm thinking this forum could greatly benefit from a bartering post.. It's another great way to pass along gear and perhaps get something you want in return..

Beside, every nickel I make from selling my excess stuff, my wife finds it and consumes it before I can.. (stupid Target trips)

I'm not certain where in the forum it would be best suited, but "parts" seems like a great place to start...

Any thoughts?

good idea!

Seems like it would be different than WTT since it's more $$-oriented.

Most regionals have "Pay it forward" threads and we allow trade threads in all 4 sub forums of the flea market, surely we would not need yet another forum for trades.
