I live in the Bible Belt of North Carolina. There is a place called The Christian Family Book Store near me. I briefly had a girlfriend who worked there, so I visited several times. What I saw amazed me. In this weak economy, they had three cash registers with three lines of customers wrapped around the store all day, every day. The store sold Christian books, but also tons of "sanctified" household items. There were Jesus lamps, fish ashtrays, Jesus board games, and crosses painted on or attached to just about anything you can think of.

My point is, I could go to the Dollar Tree and fill my van with low budget items. By adding crosses, fish, or other Christian symbols to the items, I increase their value by ridiculous amounts. A three dollar hammer becomes a 18 dollar hammer. A five dollar broom becomes a 25 dollar broom.

It wouldn't especially be my trip, but if you wanna, RUN WITH IT!

I don't know that I would ever actually do it, but it has definitely crossed my mind.

My "Jesus Saves" rolling pin make me feel closer to God

Oh, can you just imagine some wife bringing her recalcitrant husband closer to god with the rolling pin?  [groan!]

That's why I throw in the "Fishers of Men" helmet as value added.

Haha get yer helmet!

I had no idea you were in NC Edward! Hey neighbor! BTW I think we should do it and use it to help Atheists who are underwater on their mortgages and have unpaid college loans! Freaks need to be paying taxes anyway... 

I'm in!

I say go for it.  If that's what trips their trigger, then make a profit!  You're not MAKING them buy the stuff.

It'd be like selling Dallas Cowboys memorabilia to fans in Texas.  Yeah, you know it is crap, but you're providing something to the ignorant masses that they really & truly want, at a "fair" price.  What's immoral about that?  Supply & demand.

@ booklover and Danny

True nuff... To give ya an idea of my area... The legitimate book store went out of business! 

That's sad that the legitimate book store went out of business!  Now I REALLY think you should put crosses on all that crap and charge a LOT! :)
