The Boston Globe's Web site, Boston.com, a property of Times Co. Digital, has launched a local auction service at auctions.boston.com. The site joins buyers and sellers in the New England region. To encourage user trial, Boston.com is allowing all sellers to post items free of charge for the first month. The auction site will also feature special sections in which auction proceeds will go to local and regional charities.
