Etsy: you can sell human teeth, but no bones

Online marketplace Etsy has updated its list of what you can and can't sell on the site. On the good-to-go list: human teeth. On the prohibited list: human bones.

Gray's Anatomy

Oh, human hair is allowed too. Before you screw your face up in bafflement, the Victorians used to make mourning jewellery out of the hair of the deceased, and there's a thriving collector's market for the antiques. (You can make the face now, if you like.)

However, human body parts are, otherwise, a strict no-no. These include skulls, bones, articulated skeletons, bodily fluids, and preserved tissues or organs.

The rest of the prohibited list reads pretty much as you would expect: hazardous materials, anything you can smoke (eg, tobacco), motor vehicles and drugs of any kind.

We're really happy we can still get human teeth, though. That Tooth Fortress has a ways to go.

Thanks Arwen!
