Can I borrow a cup of sugar? Or a fondue pot?

Is there anything similar to freecycle or craigslist for items one wants to borrow and return?

I'm moving tomorrow and it boggles my mind how much stuff my roommates and I have collected. A lot of it is items that we only use once every few months - fondue pot, hair curler, handheld drill, pizza cutter, just to name things we've packed today.
I was wondering if there is some sort of online or real world place to borrow these things? It would be wonderful to not have to pay for the expense of buying them, or have them take up space in our house, or have to lug them around when they move.
If such a place or website doesn't exist, why not? That is, what do you think would be the drawbacks? I suppose it requires a certain level of trust that people will return your stuff. Anything else I'm not thinking of?
