  1. Excellent Guys! Keep it rocking.. awesome!!!

  2. TradeMe can be toppled over time. The only reason tradeMe is dominant is because of first come and that’s fact.

  3. Cool stuff. I don’t know why people are still using sites where you have to pay to use them.

    I’ve found the search engine on sella doesn’t seem to work. I’ve searched all sorts of keywords of items that are listed but it always comes up as no results.

  4. Yip, we are working on the search, expect to see a better search in February next year.
