" is the only industry-specific site where people can not only list their stores, but also list their equipment for sale too. And it's absolutely free."

To buy or sell on the site, visitors must register for free to create login information. Once registered, users can post descriptions or listing or the items for sale, along with contact information.

In addition, the site also offers a users' forum, allowing visitors to communicate with one another, along with search tools that allow visitors easy location of a specific item.
