Try the leps-livestock-list at leach.nhm.ac.uk - they are more into 
exchange, but looks like no harm done in advertising the odd batch.

I for one wouldn't mind direct mailings of what you have - Presumably 
all you offer are from breedings, not wild capture, judging by your 
address? At this stage I deal through wholesalers only, as I breed a 
lot of African material, and find it tiresome to send out small 
parcels to individuals. I do however trade in stuff I breed for my 
own collection, and would welcome a list specifically dedicated to 
sales vs. exchange, to know in advance what the person has in mind.

A few months ago I almost had my head bitten off for suggesting that 
the "if it pays, it stays" approach also works for butterflies & 
moths, but the rich, Hollier-than-though apparently hold in disdain 
any mere mortal that needs to support his habit by selling stock to 
people that can afford it
