You can find a lot of info on alternatives at powersellersunite.com.
Unfortunately there are a lot of people on there that don't have a clue,
too. Reading the forums (esp. the sellers forum) on eBay itself can be
enlightening as well.
From my research on compete.com (similar to Google zeitgeist, but with
more info) eBid (not free, auctions), Blujay (free, but not auctions),
and eCrater (also free, not auctions) are probably the biggest. And you
can't discount the power of Craigslist if you live close to a larger city.
