Etsy Updates Prohibited Items List

Etsy is a haven for homemade goods, but the online shopping site clarified that its stores are not the place to be selling drug paraphernalia and other questionable material. The company said it has spent several months researching "some offbeat and fascinating topics" -- like the sale of human bones to the corrosive and toxic properties of mercury -- which prompted Etsy to update the site's Prohibited Items list.
