A Warning From An Ebay Seller This Halloween!

I love Ebay, and had some great success last year selling stuff and making some really good cash too, but sometimes you just gotta say "What the hell are they thinking"! I was looking at some of the crap being sold as "haunted" and came across this little guide written by another Ebay seller, enjoy....

If you do a search on "haunted" or "cursed" items, you will see a preponderance of these sales. One seller's grandmother apparently had a terrible string of bad luck since every item she is selling is cursed or haunted.
Or check out the "haunted" tarot deck blessed by a coven of 30 witches? A few facts might help us see the problems here. A coven is comprised of thirteen members. A coven doesn't bless tarot decks and sell them. I am a Wiccan High Priestess with over 25 years experience in the Craft of Wicca. These people are out to steal your money. This is a deck that you can buy NEW for under $25 dollars yet they want you to spend 135$??? Don't be taken in by this New Age con game.
Do you believe in ghosts? I do. I have had very real experiences with disenfranchised spirits. Please don't think that just because someone tells you something is haunted that it is. Use your brains, gang. If we cut this trend off at the knees by not buying and by sending notes to the seller that we know they are frauds, we can make Ebay a much better place.
Join me in a crusade to rid Ebay of frauds and cons.
Do your part. Don't buy. Do question.

And now for some laughs!

Is it just me, or would you sell any one of these items if they truly did what they say they do?
Ok, with the exception of the poor monkeys paw, that has to go...

If something was truly cursed, I don't think I would want to sell it to someone else and give them that curse. Some things are better off just gone.

My sister collected pigs (figurines, etc) - her friend picked one up at a garage sale for her. It was 3 pigs doing the "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil". Anyway - we were sure that figuring was cursed. It would always be on a different spot in the curio cabinet than where you put it. It gave my sister the creeps. She finally threw it in the trashcan one day - and felt relieved once it was gone!!
