Where's a good place to list stuff?

No question that this is an appropriate place to 
give things away or sell for a token sum, and I 
certainly prefer that for most trivial items.

But when I see items in my basement actually sell 
for > $1000 on eBay I'm understandably reluctant 
to give them away; on the other hand I don't think 
that this is the place for them either as I've 
seen enough posts from folks on collector forums 
pillorying someone for what they consider 
exorbitant prices being asked on eBay...
