Cool Auctions are a bunch of listings that we think deserve a wider audience. There’s a ‘Cool Auctions’ strip on our homepage, and a dedicated Cool Auctions page.
A Cool Auction should be something interesting, thought-provoking, unique, unusual, quirky, challenging, clever, compelling, entertaining or extraordinary in some way. Being for a good cause can be helpful, but it’s not necessary.
Given the number of listings on the site, there will often be healthy competition for a spot. There's no limit on how long it might stay up either.
