Cool community tales
$1 Reserve flick

There are heaps of great stories about quirky trades, and this new short film by Candlelit Pictures and The Actors' Programme tells one of them! When Jocelyn finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her, she sells his prized possessions on Trade Me. '$1 Reserve' is a look at the connections we make with strangers through Trade Me transactions, and it's a hoot!

Reunited after 25 years

Speaking of great stories, 25 years after it was created, this cheeky print was reunited with its rightful owner through Trade Me (yep, that's her in the pic!).

The seller was moving out of their house so they put it on Trade Me and shared the auction on Twitter. One of their followers replied and said "that's my friend Fiona!"

What's in the box?

In February we asked you what you'd love to see in our magical giveaway box. We picked 10 winning entries, all of which you can check out on our Facebook page. Here are some lovely bits of feedback from the winning bunch:

"I am LOVE LOVE LOVING my new toys! The carpet cleaner has made such a difference to my poor carpet. Plus, my kids are keen to help with the housework now! Bonus!" – Helen, Auckland

"The ukulele is for my daughter's 2nd birthday but we couldn't resist giving her a little play as she's guitar mad. She loved it, it's beautiful – thank you so much." – Ashleigh, Taranaki

"I'm planning on using the Domino's pizza vouchers to help feed the guys at my Grassroots Drift days at Taupo Motorsport Park. Can't beat a double-bacon cheeseburger pizza!" – Chris, Hamilton

We will remember them
This year's ANZAC Day marks something pretty special – it's the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landings in Gallipoli.

The majority of Kiwis will have some connection with this important day, so if you're wanting to head along to a ceremony and pay your respects, here are a list of events happening around the place.

Even if you can't make it to an event this year, wear a poppy with pride and remember the brave New Zealanders who represented our country.
