I am moving overseas next month and I have a whole bunch of stuff that I want to offer/sell to friends/colleagues etc before I have to start putting things on trademe etc and getting charged listing fees. 

Usually I just do this via a mailing list and people reply with what they want and I just keep track of it via the emails I get back, however this time there is going to be way more items then I can keep track of via email, or send out via email for that matter. 

I was hoping to find a very basic gumtree/ebay/trademe clone that I could host on my own on my server, and people who I gave the address to could come along, check out what I have and if they want it hit buy.

However it seems to be proving harder then I thought, everything I've checked out so far seems way over the top and all of them appear to require the person buying an item to login, and I really don't want that.

Ideally I want a button that says buy, and when they press it, it gives them a box to fill in their name + email and option phone number. 

any ideas on a easy platform to do that with?


Cheers


A.

Something like this;

Look for something that doesn't require a database though - I found one for a wiki that just uses text files.
