Here are links to some New Zealand trade and exchange sites that we are aware of. Let us know of others.

New Zealand sites

  • www.ebay.co.nz
  • www.sella.co.nz 
  • Shop here (a list of auction sites)
  • www.trademe.co.nz
  • Check out www.thedeal.co.nz for brand new discounted items (you can get up to 60% off).  This site has everything, homewares, makeup, clothes etc - Steph

  • This isn't an original idea but I joined my local city Freecycle online. It is excellent for picking up or giving away items that might otherwise end up in the landfill. You can give away or ask for anything within reason. No money changes hands. I've picked up a vacuum cleaner that works incredibly well, toys, bar stools, and plants for my garden. You can find you local town or city here >>> - Sande

  •  Check out the new Kiwi "freecycle" website www.asksharegive.org.nz for heaps of fantastic free stuff. Anything can be borrowed, given away or exchanged on the site as long as no money changes hands. JF, Auckland.  

  • Yumiko writes, "I run a totally free Classifieds website for NZ families which I thought I would share http://www.kidsgear.co.nz . Thanks." 

  • I love going through the deals.  Have already started Xmas shopping with good discounts. www.LoveOneDaySales.co.nz - Alice, Christchurch.

    I love garage sales (this weekend I got 12 items of clothing including a bath robe for $21) but I do not love getting to garage sales at the published start-time to find all the good stuff has been snapped up by the early birds. So, my husband and I and a couple of clever helpers launched www.bluegnome.co.nz - a website that keeps garage sales addresses secret until shortly before garage sales start and then emails and texts them to buyers. As online auction prices rise think about returning to the old kiwi tradition of trading second hand in person - it's really good fun and you never know when you'll stumble upon just what you've been looking for. - Blue Gnome, Plimmerton.
