    Ebay is a monster. A world wide money making monster machine. I am wondering what it would take to create a cheaper, more attractive alternative? Some of the items I have been thinking about are:

    A flat insertion fee with no Final Value fee (maybe 5.00 to 10.00 depending on how many photos are included.)

    All auctions must include photos (no exceptions.)

    Those are just 2 items, what services would you like to see?

    I know TB and The Dude Pit are inexpensive ways to sell your stuff,but I am talking about auctions (and more than just musical instruments.)
