MeFi Housing?

I launched my latest apartment hunt this week (I'm moving to Chicago!), and turned immediately to the Ask MeFi archives for advice. As I sent my 93rd email to an unknown Craigslist poster this afternoon, it hit me: Wouldn't it be great to do this on MetaFilter? We already have Jobs, which is very close, and Ask threads about housing often include a few leads from other members. In fact, I was tempted to post one myself for this reason, but I don't really have an original question. [more inside]

Is it time for MetaFilter consignment?

I know a MetaFilter swapsite or Craigslist-y thing has been suggested before, but now that I have a thing burning a hole in my pocket that I'd like to give to an interested local Mefite -- like, today -- I'm wondering if it's time. I'd like to sell or give away things to you, and I'd like to buy stuff, too. I'm pretty sure that we could do some really interesting things with this, like what Miko did with her $9 something offer.

Swapping on MeFi

Feature request: I want swap.metafilter.com. I really want to unload my junk on my fellow MeFites, and buy their junk off them. Please, Matt? Craigslist and eBay don't require a 5-spot to join, unlike MeFi, so that cuts down dramatically on the skeezy lowlife scammer factor. Another advantage is that this place is a real community and people care about their reputations. The community self-policing is strong, and MeFi's full of interesting people with (most likely) compelling junk they want to get rid of. One man's junk is another man's treasure.

Also, people here are really creative. Wouldn't it be cool if Miguel could sell his books here, for instance? Or Steven Den Beste could trade anime with other otaku. MeFites who are painters could sell their paintings. Sculpture. And so on.
