Trade Me treasures discussed with Jon MacDonald on 23rd October 2012.
Retro electronica – Simon – the 4-lighted copycat game, still in the original box – these are apparently worth $170+ these days!
Mega-Metallica pack of memorabilia signed by San Fran rock legends Metallica, includes a custom-framed guitar, certificate, magazine & guitar lesson book. Start price is set at $3k.
A 6-foot 3-inch Merrythought ballerina bear, one of two in the country and a rare collectible.
An anguished plea from the parent selling this annoying accordion: My very thoughtful aunty gifted this extremely loud accordian to the kids…this accordian must go to either very patient parents, or a musically deaf family.”
Possibly NZ’s last Austin Maxi, as the seller says “unstylish and unpopular” but would look cool towing your caravan. Photos include a couple of cracking 1970s newspaper ads for the car.
A full-on set-up for brewing and serving beers on a grand scale, of for the student flat, here is The Kegernator – a truly innovative beer set up for the discerning.
And here’s a chance to drop by the Trade Me office and show off your skills on the pool table. Run by a staffer named Nick at Trade Me, the package includes a gift pack with 2 professional pool cues & case and lots more.
