From a goat named Hector, to a stockpile of Geisha wigs, Gloriavale has taken Trade Me by storm with some truly unique listings.
The Gloriavale Trade Me account was created in 2004 and has sold off some real gems, including a goat name Ruth who was recently listed with the very honest description: "Ruth is not very friendly."
The reclusive Christian community's account is run by a man named John who is clearly doing a stand out job: After listing over 5,800 items, the account boasts an impressive 100 per cent positive feedback rating.
You go Gloriavale.
While their Trade Me feedback game is strong, the items make for an odd collection of second-hand wares.
Here are the six strangest items for sale on Gloriavale's Trade Me account.
11 GEISHA WIGS

The "quality wigs" come complete with bows and are currently listed for $16 a pop, a real bargain considering we're told they retail for $35. Surely that's something worth singing about.
PRE-CUT HEART SHAPES
You have the option to buy them in plain white paper, or have a member of Gloriavale customise them for you at "a cost of 15 cents per sheet".
"HAPPY BOY" BOXER SHORTS
These never worn before boxers are described as a "really good fit" and "the boys wearing them are finding them very comfortable to wear." No wonder they're called Happy Boy boxers.
HECTOR THE BILLY GOAT
The listing states: "We have several daughters and sisters of him, so we have had to purchase an unrelated Billy."
Hector does appear to be in quite the bad mood in his photos, too. Aside from being miffed about being kicked out of his all-in-the-family flock, his photos appear to have been taken in the dead of night when Hector would clearly rather have been asleep.
GLORIAVALE UNIFORM VEST
The polar fleece number has three pockets, perfect for stashing all the phone numbers you'll no doubt be slipped while wearing it.
