Caylee Anthony's Grandparents Selling Her Toys at a Yard Sale (VIDEO)

Say What!? 246

Caylee AnthonyPeople have made some pretty bizarre discoveries at garage sales over the years, but a Florida woman's recent find sounds more sad than anything. The woman claims to have bought some of toddler Caylee Anthony's belongings at a yard sale being thrown by the dead girl's grandparents, Cindy and George Anthony.

Christian Werner has got video to prove she was there, that the Anthonys, parents of the infamous Casey Anthony, who ranks right up near the top of the "most hated moms in the world" list, were selling off teddy bears, a kids' backpack, and other toys. The way she tells it, the Anthony family is a disgrace for parting with such precious items at a yard sale.

That's just a wee bit ridiculous. Not to mention presumptuous!

Werner has said she could understand the couple selling off Casey Anthony's stuff, but not little Caylee's belongings. She "will never understand how they could part with these things at a yard sale!"

I'm sure she doesn't understand what it's like to have your daughter charged with murder, your family's life ripped open and criticized by the world either.

But that's what happened to the Anthonys. Since Caylee's death, five years ago, they've had to deal not only with grieving her loss, but facing the fact that their daughter was not the person they thought she was, and do it all in the public eye.

It's been two years since Casey got a "not guilty" verdict, and while she's still battling things in the courts, the big story is more or less over for George and Cindy Anthony. They didn't kill little Caylee. They should be allowed to get back to living, to find some sort of closure over their ordeal.

For some of us, closure can only come of divesting ourselves of the material items that link us to a traumatic time. Keeping someone's bedroom as a shrine for decades is how some of us deal ... but not everyone, clearly not the Anthonys.

And so what if they chose a yard sale to get rid of her teddy bears and luggage? Would throwing her toys in the trash be a better option? Would that meet this woman's approval or would that simply open up a whole different can of worms?

Can Cindy and George Anthony ever really be allowed to move on?

Or is America holding them responsible for their granddaughter's death too?

Check out the video from the sale:

What do you think of the Anthonys' yard sale?

I think it is a bit creepy to sell that stuff at a garage sale, because it is bound to attract attention. I guess if it was me I would have donated the items. Doing it this way opens the door for some sicko to buy and it put it on eBay for the sick people who collect murder memorabilia.  I do believe that it is healthy for them to get rid of most of her items. I am sure they kept some of the items they were more connected to. I think it was in poor taste for this woman to post about it too.

I agree with Chandra, selling her things at a garage sale is creeping me out. I also agree that donating them would have been a better option, they could have done so anonymously and no one would ever have to know.

Maybe it's not even her stuff. Maybe it's casey's from when she was little. Who knows?

When my son passed away, I put some special things in a storage container that I wanted to keep and donated most of the other things. A few things that I put in the donation box came out because my other children didn't want to part with them. They would pull somthing out and say "No, this was John's." Gradually, the stuff they wanted to keep got smaller, to just a few keepsakes that had special memories. I think the Anthoneys was probably like this. It is time for them to let go of the majority of stuff and just keep the ones that hold special memories. If they want to do it through a yard sale, who are we to say its wrong?

Are they supposed to keep everything she ever touched? It's nobody's business how they choose to clean house. Certainly not Ms. Werner's business.

Who cares. Are they suppose to keep that stuff forever? Burn it because it belong to a child that died?

sad, she was such a beautiful little girl. if that was my grand daughter, id keep her stuff forever,but how do they know it was hers?

I still believe the Grandparents had just as much to do with Caylee's death as her Mother did.

The things don't help them hold on to their precious granddaughter. She is gone, and keeping  all of her things may be too painful. Does it matter whether they were sold or donated? Why does everyone have to judge what someone else does? No one else can know their feelings. Let them deal with their loss in their own way.

So... This woman is complaining about how "wrong" it is for them to sell Caylee's stuff at a yard sale, yet she bought the stuff anyway? Sounds to me like someone's just looking for their 15 minutes.
