The new B&S "classifieds" - it's no longer a forum per se - as it is, sucks both as a buyer and a seller. I have three ties and two pairs of shoes left in the old B&S, I haven't moved them to the "new system" yet and don't really plan to. I think most of my stuff is going to go on AAAC or Ebay now - if I'm going to have to do Ebay-style work for listing on SF, where there's only maybe 100 people viewing the new one, I may as well just list on Ebay where there's much better search and many more views. Sure there's more fees - but some of the upgraded selling "tiers" would end up costing me as much or more as Ebay fees. Even if I don't use those, the fundamental problem still exists - fewer people look at the new B&S, and it's almost impossible for anyone to actually see your stuff unless they SEARCH for what you're selling.
And yes, the new fees are playing a role - I have heard directly from several sellers that they are raising prices because of it.
Oh, and just to add: as both a buyer and a seller, I can't help but lament the ability to offer multi-item deals. I can't say how many times I've seen something I wanted, then looked at what else the seller had and ended up with a good package deal. With this system, it just became a royal pain to see what else the same seller is selling, compared to how it used to be. I haven't had ANYONE offer a package deal, and I have offered none, since the new classifieds opened.
