This really is a breach of the rights of Wicca's, Witches, Paganists - all of whom have as much right to peddle their nonsense wares as do the other religions. What are Rosary Beads, Pictures of the Pope, Orthodox Jewish hair extensions (the curly type) all about :w00t:
Ban 1 religions "tools of the trade" and then you must ban them all.....***goes to get his EBay tin-foil hat*** :unsure2:

That's true,but most legit pagans who sell things,do it via their own website .
All the ones I know,do .
Selling it via an auction is not cost effective,because dozens of people make Venus oil ,or vanvan oil .
Like I said,etsy sells stuff like this,because they specialize in handmade items ,eBay,conversely,has allowed people to sell Hexed ,cursed,and items with alleged magickal abilities .
A ring that kills demons,is a load of hooey .
An oil used in a cleansing ritual ,is a religious item . It claims to do nothing. The person who buys it,must how how to use it .
It's a,subtle difference .

So after maybe,,a night or two of passion ,she possesses your beloved,and your beloved cuts your happy place off,and feeds it to the dog,and you are front page Enquired news .
You will wish you got the silk jammies .
Just sayin .

For TWO nights of passion, the Succubus can possess Mike Tyson and have him delivered to my door with murder on his mind... I'd take the risk.

One of the DVDs was entitled, "Bertie the Bus and Sally the Whistle Blower".  And only a PG rating, I noticed.  Scandalous, in my opinion.

Lol, you inspired me.... :)

I liked it so much I 'liked' every damn post in the thread... (even the ones I didn't like)

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

Ah, but the difference between a prayer and a spell is the small expectation that the spell might actually work! ;)

Anyway, I've just realised....... Why aren't I selling Abduction proofing tinfoil hats on fleabay>?

Edit: Orthodox Jewish hair extensions? You are surely having a laugh? :w00t:

I've thought about taking a small square platform (wood, plastic, whatever) with nothing on it and selling it on ebay as a statue of the Atheist Diety....

I bet someone would by it...

You'd think the witches and psychics would see these things coming and up-broomsticks to another website.  OldHag.com* or summat.

Only saying.

*I was gonna say e-Spell.com but that's already a genuine website for helping the illiterate, apparently.. lol

I should have kept my grandma's broomsticks she use to make them from small branches with  a bigger one in the middle... I would have made fortune selling them with their spidery occupants... :P
