Cursing an enemy with a hex or finding a charm to make your lover forever faithful has just become a little harder, as eBay has banned the sale of all forms of ‘magic’ through the online auction site, beginning in September.
“eBay regularly reviews categories and updates our policies based on customer feedback. We are discontinuing a small number of categories within the larger metaphysical subcategory, as buyers and sellers have told us that transactions in these categories often result in issues that can be difficult to resolve,” the company announced in a statement.
Still, eBay has plenty to offer buyers with unusual tastes, with users hawking everything from vintage sneakers to fossil bones. Even the weirdest items up for auction often find buyers who are willing to pay out huge sums for strange finds.
Earlier this year, a blob of glue slightly resembling the head of cartoon character Homer Simpson sold for $235,000 on eBay.
