Hi there,

Now the Rugby World Cup is over and our sleep patterns have returned to normal, we can kick on with end-of-year and summer plans. We've got a few ideas and updates to share with you below...
Seven weekends to go
It may seem far too early to be thinking about Christmas, but there's only seven weeks to go. Avoid the shopping madness this year by getting your prezzies online.

We've recently made it easier for you to spot a Christmas bargain with the addition of 'was/now' pricing on listings that are on sale. You can also filter your search to 'On sale' items once you get to search results.

Summer clear-out
With summer fast approaching, having a clear-out is the perfect opportunity to declutter before BBQ season kicks in.

Recently we ran a competition for a bunch of Trade Me staff to come and help someone list their stuff. Dan from the mighty Palmerston North took it out, writing a wicked poem and winning our hearts.

With Dan's help we managed to get a whole heap of his stuff listed on Trade Me, including a homemade waders dryer, some funky leadlight lampshades and about a million guitars (a small selection can be seen in the photo below). Thanks for having us, Dan!

Ever wondered where the magic happens? We've whipped up a short, behind-the-scenes look at what goes on at Trade Me during a regular 24 hours.

We reckon it's a pretty good glimpse at how things roll at HQ. Check out our careers page if you'd like to come and work with us, we'd love to hear from you.
