What's Hot On Trade Me w/c 6 January 2008

Another week, another Hot List. You can tell it’s summer — hot auction action includes kayaks, tents, barbeques and fish finders, as well as the usual collection of cars, gadgets & gizmos, and a surprising number of paintings. Some of the less common items amongst this week’s most popular offerings on New Zealand’s most popular site:

  • A pallet load of off road tyres – just the thing for the car enthusiast who has everything. According to the accompanying description, this load includes “4 Used plus 7 new tyres — various tread patterns, some with solid rubber centre tread ready to cut your own tread or use as is.” Current vital statistics: 186 bids, 1892 pageviews, started life as $1 No Reserve, bidding has now reached $505. Better hurry — the auction closes at 9.11pm tonight.
  • Polaris SLX1200cc Jetski 2004 — “2 seater, 109.1 hours, 140hp, new battery, trailer will have new rego and warrent when sold – was built with room to put tool box on front plus has rollers” — also started life on Trade Me at $1 No Reserve, now $4510 after 84 bids and 2789 pageviews.

Old Lego

  • 365 White Pieces of Lego — one for each day of the year (Leap Years like this year excluded). Currently sitting at 47 bids, 142 pageviews and $30.01 the top bid.
  • Two Times Weaners Hereford X cattle — “both have been drenched, 5-1 vac, dehorned prim & sec ear tagged. Reared on Colostrium and Fibro Pro for healthy development” (as one would of course expect). 44 bids, 355 pageviews, currently tracking at $210.
  • And (a headline that caught our eye, which is all one asks of it): nestled under Art Supplies, Evil Tattoo Machine, boasting 10 coil wraps, join the bidding currently in progress at $68.25 after 44 bids and 322 pageviews.  

Such is our round-up, drawn from the 500 listings that have proven most popular so far this week.
