TradeMe is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month so we've put together a list of the weirdest things Newshub has reported on the popular trading site over the years.
From taxidermied pets, to creepy dolls and cigarette ash, TradeMe always seems to find a way to reveal the unexpected items Kiwis see value in.
Here are 10 of the weirdest stories Newshub has written about TradeMe:
Apparently you can sell a taxidermied version of your pet cat to New Zealanders, whether it comes in the form of a purse - or even rug - for over $500.
Both examples drew debate about the merits of preserving a beloved pet, with one user joking that: "[Anti-cat campaigner] Gareth Morgan would like a bulk price on these."
- Meet the man behind the viral Christmas beetroot auction on Trade Me
An unwanted Christmas present in the form of a ribbon-tied beetroot drew plenty of attention and unexpected bids.
The seller in question was a scorned husband and the beetroot part of a joke present to his wife, who didn't understand his humour at all.
The age of sustainability has seen plenty of New Zealanders become nostalgic for the good old days of yellow Pak'nSave bags.
One example of the yellow, single-use carry bag brought in an huge profit for one 18-year-old from Nelson.
Dancing With The Stars has brought plenty of weird and wonderful moments to New Zealand screens with ACT party leader David Seymour a constant standout.
One episode of the show saw Mr Seymour twerking in a curve-hugging, fluoro outfit that he subsequently auctioned off for charity.
Creepy dolls are always a hit with a particular niche of the population, though this collection's marketing copy matched its subject matter perfectly.
"I often wake up in the night with them snuggling me, which is weird, because I always lock them in the cupboard before I go to bed."
One newlywed came up with a genius way to list their old wedding dress.
"It is in excellent condition - unlike my marriage. Pretty much brand new and ready for a legit wedding after a practise run back in 2013."
A man's quirky hobby of building rocket-shaped caravans was launched into the consciousness of New Zealanders everywhere after listing one on Trademe.
Apparently the caravan needed to go because "you just don't need two rockets".
In possibly the most misguided TradeMe listing to make the news, one user attempted to sell a bucket of cigarette ash they had been collecting for more than six months.
Reddit is a source of joy for millions around the world and its thread dedicated to all things New Zealand went through a phase of posting some truly bizarre TradeMe exchanges.
One saw a man described as an Arnold Schwarzenegger lookalike and his wife turn hostile after realising they'd been sold a second-hand outdoor feeding trough for cows which had scratches on it.
Finally, what would a best-of list be in 2019 without a mention of rowdy tourists?
A child of the infamous family from the UK, was photographed wearing a large Bunnings Warehouse hat, which apparently then ended up listed for auction.
