Their could be a place where players can trade with villagers to obtain items that the admin shops don't sell like arrows

i love this idea
because the more they r used, the more things we can buy
But how do we stop people from killing them?

Simple... you would keep them in a 1x1 area anyways, so could also place a pressure plate under the villager. As soon as he gets killed, the pressure plate activates (because not pressed anymore) and a connected dispenser (with one inverter inbetween) shoots a villager spawn egg out to the place, so a new villager comes up.
This way you automatically get a new villager. The dispensers would be locked with a password which only the Admins and Mod+ now, so they can refill them from time to time.
Killing all villagers should be impossible due to the ammount of stored eggs (each dispenser can take up to 9x64 eggs) and the business of the place, so someone who kills one would get caught fast.

Yeah i think this is a great idea and para's system seems like it would work great! I think that if we do this it should go somewhere next to the admin shop!

I think this is a cool idea, a couple of builders could get on this and build a glass 1x1 area for the villagers, complete with the red stone circuitry. The only problem is that almost make getting resources a little to cheap.

Actually villagers are known to over price items like 1 emerald for 4 arrows

yes but if there is a good deal if you use it to much the villager will stop selling that item to you anymore...but i DO like the idea about a villager trading system, it would be a nice addition to the shopping features
