Gypsy Spoonful is a curated marketplace, and therefore, we are particular about items which are sold on our site. Although we are curated, it is incumbent upon the purchaser to do their own due diligence before purchasing an item for several reasons.
If you’re a buyer in question as to whether or not something you see is allowed on the Gypsy Spoonful website, refer to these guidelines.
If you’re a maker/seller in question as to whether an item you have created is allowed to be sold on our venue, consult these guidelines.
If you’re still confused, following reading these, please contact an admin at [email protected]
Some items present legal risks to our community; others are inconsistent with our values, are harmful to our members, or simply are not in the spirit of Gypsy Spoonful.
We hope these guidelines are helpful, but we cannot catalog every permitted or prohibited item.
We reserve the right to remove listings that we determine are not within the spirit of Gypsy Spoonful.
Such listings will be removed from the site, and the member’s selling privileges may be suspended and/or terminated.
If you see something on Gypsy Spoonful that appears to violate these rules, you can report it to us.

1. Alcohol, Tobacco, Drugs, Drug Paraphernalia, and Medical Drugs

Because we are a creative community, we err on the side of freedom of expression.
We also tend to allow items that have educational, historical, or artistic value, but we know that even those items are subject to a variety of valid and sometimes conflicting interpretations and emotional responses.
Edible items (food products such as candy, baked goods) *can* be allowed, but there is a vetting process for that, please email for information if you are a seller of food products. [email protected]
