You’ll Need to Find a New Place for Witchery

Etsy, that purveyor of random crap that is slowly taking the place of the arts and crafts tent at country fairs, is changing their policy, and this one has serious implications for the…heathens among us.

That’s right!  From here on out, you can no longer buy spells and incantations on Etsy.  Why?  Well, some believe it’s a big Christian conspiracy, arguing that the language “prayer” can be included, but “spell” is a step to far.  Others might just think “how can you prove the thing your selling is a thing that works?” but their voices were quickly, and mysteriously silenced:

Can’t ladies just gather together in robes without it being witchery?

Does this effect your Etsy business?  Are you unsure where to turn to for spells and enchantments now?  Let me know in the comments!!

(also: anyone have a spell to attract a certain Brit?  LET ME KNOW!!!)

      What sort of warranty will you provide with your services?

      • hotspur says:

        We will have two levels of warranty. First there is the Order of Hecuban Blood Warranty, whereby any purchase that fails to work as described brings down upon its seller the Curse of Eternal Sorrows, as described in the tenth canto of the Necronomicon, unto the seventh generation, pervading with desolation and misfortune all the hours of their existence. That comes with Prime Membership. Then there is our Circle of Magnificent Light Warranty. That covers shipping on returns.

  2. I don’t really have a joke about this, I just really REALLY love etsy and buy almost all of my non-technology gifts there. In fact my dad’s Father’s Day gift arrived today (sorry, dad, probably won’t make it in time.)
