A wesbite similar to Wanelo.com using elgg

Hello everyone.

I am new to elgg.

But i am quite used to PHP and Mysql Programming.

I have this urge to build a website like wanelo.com but for different products where people can post products , follow people, follow stores, etc.
it involves activity feeds for people, stores as well as products.

I know its a very basic question. But i want to be sure whether elgg is the right engine to use for the same.

Thanks in advance.

 Also, if yes, then where do i start with. Right now, i was just hovering around the elgg data model and other bsaic documentation before pulging into the code.

Thanks again
