Well, eBay is killing itself slowly. Every year they make more and more
onerous and anti-buyer rules and policies. That coupled with the fact that
shipping rates are becoming unbearable is going to end eBay in electronics
in a few more years.

I know of a couple of flea markets here in SoCal but none are dedicated to
electronics and even when someone is selling electronics it is usually crap.
The reality is that this is a closed community for better or worse and the
numbers keep shrinking.
