Can't think of any specifically UK-bases services, but you might try the zShops or auctions.  Also, on ABE you can set the fields to
search only book shops in the UK, which is handy.  If you find nothing, you
can leave a want which specifies this.

That no-longer-secure message from ABE is probably because your version of
Netscape or Internet Explorer (or whatever) is in need of updating.  This
happened to me (also on ABE, I think), and I downloaded a newer version of
IE and now it's fine.
