So there is the absolutely brilliant 

BidBud


What else?

If there is enough product I will collate them on a site. Unless there is one already that I don't know about?

I'm glad you think it's brilliant (I made it!)
I'm trying to make it fill all the gaps that Trade Me have missed -- for sellers there's Trade Vine, for buyers there's BidBud.
The latest addition, as of this morning, is the ability to sort and search your watchlist -- yet another thing BidBud can do that Trade Me still can't!

Can you make it send tweets when getting say 30 mins from close of auction?

Rummage is a bit of a waste of space if you ask me -- it only does one thing, and even then not very well -- it only shows gallery items, so you're missing out on a large number of items on TM.
You can do something similar with BidBud, see http://www.bidbud.co.nz/search?category=0339-&user_region=100&sort_order=BidsMost&display_type=visual for example,  it show ALL items.
Not to mention you don't have to switch back to Trade Me if you want to bid on something.

I've not used Trade Vine but I do know they have a free option -- see http://tradevine.co.nz/pricing.html

I could -- but why would you want to do this?
Your best strategy for any auction is to decide on your maximum and stick to it -- with BidBud you can do it easily, schedule your bid, and forget about the auction -- you'll get an email if you win.

That said, you're far from the first person to ask about this sort of thing -- why would it be handy?
