Pretty limited audience. Try ebay or craigs list.

At one point I thought it would be nice to have a 'for sale' thread.

Then I realized many here remain anonymous, are decluttering, downsizing, penny pinching frugal....

that's exactly what I am talking about. a very many 'rich' people wanting to sell it all and move to a trailer park for the winters....people want boats....wanting land...needing house sitters....i've read them all. all forums have a for sale section. i am on the AT forum, 5 motorcycle forums, kite surfing forums, plant cultivation forums, camping forums, rv conversion forums---all are great learning tools and all have a $ Sale section. I don't need to buy or sell anything and i am very aware of ebay and craigslist.

I was just making an observation. I won't make that mistake again

I actually did buy something from another e-r.org member--he had mentioned in a random thread that he was putting stuff on eBay and posted a picture of some of it (not as a sales pitch, just an "I'm getting rid of this stuff."). One item had our last name on it, so I emailed him and $5 later through Paypal, I owned it. And gave it to another family member for a birthday gift because I hate having stuff.

Forums about 'stuff', specific interests, hobbies, or activities with their own equipment will have 'for sale' areas related to the board. This board is about early retirement, and a related 'for sale' area would be selling financial planning, annuities, and such.

Somehow I don't see the members here appreciating an area devoted to folks pitching Variable Universal Life policies. Remember that they'd be all over the place promoting their posts in the For Sale area.
