+1 for craigslist. I am pretty much done with selling on eBay due to the ~20% you pay in fees (when you account for both eBay and Paypal fees). I do however simultaneously list on eBay and craigslist on the off chance that someone on eBay is interested in dealing locally, i.e. circumventing eBay fees.
One important thing to note with craigslist is to only deal locally, in well lit, populated areas; I choose Starbucks because they are everywhere. Furthermore, only deal in cash. 99.99% of the time if buyer on craigslist asks to pay you via Paypal (or some western union wire type service) and then have you ship it, it is a scam. Believe it or not their are several ways that someone can pay you through Paypal, then take then money back before you can can get it. Here is an example of a recent scam email I got while trying to sell my 7D + 15-85.
"$1250 is reasonable, I just finished AIT (Advanced Individual Training), But I'm waiting for deployment. I would appreciate if you can handle the shipment once you confirm payment and that brings the total to $1350. You can request money with my email (Georgebarness@outlook.com
) for a PayPal payment. Keep me updated once request is sent.

So be on the lookout for anything that looks/feels/sounds like that. I have bought and sold several pieces of camera equipment on craigslist in the past few years. you just need to be patient, not emotional, and use your head.
