Cool auctions

The ‘Cool Auctions’ stripe on our homepage features a bunch of listings that we think deserve a wider audience. These also appear on a dedicated Cool Auctions page.

There are no hard and fast criteria around what makes the cut as a Cool Auction, but it should be something people find interesting, thought-provoking, unique, unusual, quirky, challenging, clever, compelling, entertaining or extraordinary in some way. Being for a good cause might be helpful, but it’s not necessary.

Given the number of listings on the site, remember there will often be healthy competition for a spot. There's no set time limit on how long it might stay up either, as we like to keep it random and flexible.

If you have a listing that you think Trade Me members would be interested in seeing, you should let our Cool Auction crew know by getting in touch
