Now that ebay has banned the sale of spells and curses (who knew?) there’s a gap in the market for BVC to step right up and fill.
So if you’re looking for a place to buy those hard-to-get lycanthropy transformation spells (and who isn’t) and you want the tax-deductible kind – look no further. Book View Curses will be opening in September (we’ve used a ‘see the future’ spell so we know it’s true!)
We’ll be offering a full range of ‘off the musty shelf’ and bespoke magical products. If you’re looking for love, revenge, wealth, power or just a large covering of fur, we’ll have just the product for you. And none of them have been tested on animals! Well, not often.
Plagued by Zombies? You need our Zombie Gone package. For only $124.99 we’ll surround your house with salt and hydrogenated brain extract. It’s the humane way to get rid of Zombies. And less mess.
Need a good curse? All our curses now have added boils! Locust plagues a speciality! And watch out you first-born – we know where you live.
We’ll also be selling astral projection insurance. It’s too easy to project yourself into the path of moving traffic and most car insurers refuse to pay out on claims where the victim was only partially there.
So what spells, curses or magical products would you like to see?
