Found this interesting article in a UK paper not too long ago. The story being covered is that Facebook are rolling out more seller friendly search tools, options and pages. It’s not quite eBay yet more like a Facebook/Gumtree/Freecycle hybrid, but its any step away from eBay is a step in the right direction.
Another eBay alternative this ones called “tagsellit” shows it self as a second hand market place/online garage sale kind of setup. Has online sales, classifieds, local sale directory. The listings are free too.
