By default the packages are stored in /var/cache/apt/archives/ and
deleted if you do an apt-get clean /apt-get autoclean or tell synaptic
to do so (in prefs).

you could "yumify" the directory with yum-arch and then make it
available via http or ftp. For localhost only use a dir is sufficient:
dir my-apt-cache /var/cache/apt/archives
will add a new up2date "channel" with your apt-cache.
