Are we allowed to post local-only trades here? I have a ton of games, but I don't have the means or resources to ship games (nor do I want to pay for shipping), but I have no problem trading locally.

You'll have better luck in the regional forums. Otherwise you're essentially spamming the entire trade forum to get to a few local users.

Carl,

I'm going to launch a FL only math trade at the end of the month. While there is no guarantee that you will end up with only local trades, you'd only have to ship within Florida, which will drastically reduce your shipping expense.

You could try a local flea market/trade list. Here are some that are currently active in other cities.

Portland
San Diego
Tuscon
New York

I'm not finding one in your area, but maybe check in the local forums. Or start your own.

How do I go about making it popular, or making sure people see it?

Never really tried myself, so just guessing here, but I think posts on the trades and geekbay forums would be a good place to start. Maybe on your local forums as well. Probably a good idea to ask a mod of one of the other flea markets for tips.
