A lot of those free to play korean MMOs have adapted that model. It's clever if you ask me, however I prefer playing the game and doing that, might make people with money and the intent to spend it on that, really really really lame powergamers.
Kind of like, car racing: if we all have the same car, it's interesting and skill is the determining factor. If everyone can buy their own car, the rich people are going to win, regardless of their skill, because they can simply buy whatever advantage they need.

For cosmetic purposes though, the item sale isn't a bad idea, but I wouldn't make those items have game related advantages.
