Software for displaying small inventory on the web

I need recommendations for software for displaying a small inventory on the web?
I'm doing a web site for a friend who buys and resells heavy equipment (commercial trucks, forklifts, etc.). He maintains an inventory of 20-100 items at a time, divided into about 5 categories. He wants a web page for each category that displays info about each item in that category, along with one or more photos of each.
The business owner, who is not particularly technically inclined, needs to manage the addition and removal of items himself.
I'm currently working on an implementation of this using MovableType, and it satisfies the requirements pretty well.
But I got to thinking: if all you have is a blogging tool, does every project resemble a blog? Is there some category of web software out there that is specifically designed for something like this?
I'm a moderate level programmer, with experience in PHP and Perl, so tweaking some packaged scripts wouldn't be an issue.
It's okay if the software uses MySQL.
