There is a little industry that has flourished in the last couple of days – the selling of Casey Anthony.

On the upside, it’s nice to see that the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in the U.S.A.. The downside? That this eclectic collection of items from oil paintings to old yearbooks to bumper stickers are attempting to profit from this tragedy.

There are items such as a car decal of Casey Anthony for just $1.99 to one item for sale at a staggering $100,000. While a few are planning to donate their proceeds to charity, others are exploiting the situation for a quick buck. But hey, isn’t that the American way? One thing’s for sure, some of these items are odd, off-beat, and even offensive. (There’s a few we couldn’t include! We are a family website, you know).


Can you believe this? If you click on the link you will see everything they are selling. Everything from paintings to a yearbook that was signed.
Anyone else think this is sick and wrong? She is actually making money off of this and to be frank I find it completely horrific.
I guess I think she's guilty of SOMETHING.

She wasn't convicted so there's nothing wrong with it. They couldn't even prove cause of death, let alone murder. I think she's a scumbag for child neglect but that doesn't mean she can't make money off the noteriety that the American public happily gave her. She's another in the long list of American Freak Show celebrities and for all our disgust at her actions, the people we really should be angry with are the buyers.

Yes, I was shocked Etsy was selling stuff too. I love Etsy, buy from there all the time.

It's sad that anyone would profit from the death of that sweet child but Casey was acquitted so there's no stopping her or anyone else from making money off the "event".



I can believe ebay allows this but Etsy? Maybe there should be a boycott.

It doesn't look like she's making money off of this, it looks like others are making money off of this.
