Not out of the box, I doubt there are many packages that would do something like that out of the box.
Interchange will do anything you can think up, so yes you can do what you want with Interchance alone but it will require an investment of your time.
It's one thing letting your client (company/ies) log in and sell their items, but allowing any ole customer to do so would call for (I would think) writing your own UI because I doubt you can showhorn customer selling into Admin.
Depending on your skill level this might not be difficult for you. I consider myself a medicore programmer compared to some of the braintrusts here, and I've written several fairly complex systems that replace Admin. 
There is an ecosystem of companies and consultants that can help you for a price. Perusion.com, Endpoint.com, and some individuals like Peter and Racke who you'll see here, to name a few.
