Listing of your products


By listing your products, you agree that everything listed is designed and or made by yourself

You accept that there may be other Sellers with the same craft skill as you. Products should be legal to sell and you must hold the correct documentation if applicable e.g. proof of C.E. testing etc etc

Dummy clips and blinged up dummy items are not allowed.

The site owners reserve the right to delete and inform you of the reason of any listings they deem not suitable.


Food Items


You must agree that you have passed and done all the relevant checks, tests and paper work to sell food products. The responsibility to ensure your items fit for consummation is down to you. Food safety must be your main priority when selling items of this kind. You must also make it clear how items are to be delivered or collected ( you must state your county/area for this purpose to avoid any kind of ordering errors) and ensure all packaging is fit for its purpose of transporting food items.


Handmade Supplies


If you are to sell supplies/materials that is intended for other crafters and designers to use in their work it must be handmade by yourself and not shop bought/imported. For example if you make earrings wires... you have bought in the wire and formed and annealed it into ear wires by your hands, or if you sell wool... you have bought the fleece in and then washed, dyed and then spun it yourself. If you are not sure if your product qualifies please ask myself or admins in the group we will be happy to help you.


Over Adult humour products


Please make sure these are in the over 18's section ( especially with swear words etc.) also please be sure to either blurr the picture or use a 'adult content' sign picture as your main picture ( or visabily hide the word/picture etc) and your title swear words ** out like ' I think you are a d**k' this is due to the fact our front page updates and rotates regularly when the page is refreshed and to be sure little eyes or people who are easily offended do not see them. Also use the tags ' adult content' to make it easier. If found not to admin will adjust picture or move you to the relevant categories. Google won't search listings with swear words so your item won't rank, but if you do the above it will not see the words as swearing.


Copyright/Trademark protected items: You can not list items that is copyright/trademark protected unless you have a licence from the copyright owner to reproduce their property. Items will be deleted if they do not conform to copyright law or if you can not prove you have the licence. If you have a licence to reproduce/sell copyrighted items please make this is clear in your listing description.
