This is an awesome tutorial on how to set up your own free-standing store on e-crater. Done by a squidoo-er (not me!).
E-crater is free – I’ve had quite a bit of success there – would love to phase out ebay, but that’s not happening yet. The biggest catch is that you have to drive your own traffic there – but the forums are great, with lots of ideas for helping to drive that traffic.
Anyway I thought this might be of benefit to other folks who are working from home.
