Starting in February 2021 I wanted a record or list of local NZ suppliers I have purchased from and want to remember – so here goes.
Why a list of suppliers
The reason for this page is Trademe. Once upon a time Trademe was a great place to buy stuff – almost anything you wanted in one place. The sellers were local, the stock was local and the Trademe web site was simple, responsive and reliable. But now Trademe has too many sellers shipping product from distant lands with long delivery delays, high shipping prices and high product prices. If I’m prepared to wait 4-8 weeks for delivery, I can buy direct from China myself and pay 20% of what the local crooks are charging to order it from China for me. Late 2020 Trademe updated their web site from being simple and functional to being a slow graphical mess that links to a list of background services which I’m not keen to have fooling around under the hood of my computer – but that’s just me.
I will continue to use Trademe if I can’t find what I want elsewhere. When I find a convenient suppliers direct link I’ll add it to this page so we can all “skip the Trademe experience”.
