Gabby Petito sold necklaces with heartbreaking meaning before her fatal cross-country road trip with Brian LaundrieNovember 2, 2021
GABBY Petito sold healing necklaces that sought to "eliminate pain, rage and stress" and "provide the strength to move on" just months before her ill-fated road trip with Brian Laundrie, from which only he returned.
Petito, 22, whose body was found at a campsite in Teton County, Wyoming on September 19, listed the gold-plated necklaces for sale on her Depop page, "thingsgabbydoes", last year.
Retailing for $10, Gabby sold at least three of the necklaces on her page, which appear to have originally been made by Target.
One of the chains has what's described as a "Gold Howlite Healing stone", which Gabby claimed helped its wearer find stability, patience, and awareness.
"Howlite stone helps teach patience and helps to eliminate rage, pain and stress," the listing reads.
"Promote emotional expression with this Gold Plated Healing Stone Pendant Necklace … set with a cylindrical howlite stone to bring strong and positive vibrations of self-expression and inspiration whenever you wear it."
A "Black Agate" necklace was also sold by Gabby at around the same time. That item claimed to contain powers of "Protection. Strength. Alignment."
"Black Agate, is a grounding and protective crystal," the listing reads. "It gives a calming peace, the inner strength to move on, also very helpful in keeping the peace in stressful times or places."
The third necklace sold, an "Amazonite light healing stone", claimed to represent "self-expression, inspiration and calming vibes."
"Promote harmony and peace with this Gold Plated Healing Stone," Gabby wrote. "Set with a cylindrical amazonite stone to bring strong and positive vibrations of self-expression and inspiration whenever you wear it."
BRIAN'S 'STRANGE ART'
The 22-year-old van-life vlogger, who would be found strangled to death months later, also sold old clothes, headbands, and custom-made items on her Depop page.
For $5, she sold hand-designed bookmarks made by Brian Laundrue that were splatted with blood.
The bookmarks came in a variety of designs, some of which featured birds, penguins, and even a shadowed outline of the Marvel Comics character Hellboy, a known favorite of Laundrie's.
Another of the designs, titled "Chuck Palahniuk custom", includes a stamp of two angels facing one another over a fountain. Overlayed on top of them is a bright pink lipstick mark.
The mark is seen placed inside Palahniuk's famed novel, Fight Club, which Laundrie frequently referenced in his artwork and on his social media pages.
Droplets of blood and red smudges are eerily seen splatted across the book and bookmark.
A second design, a black outline of a dead mockingbird, is also advertised for sale next to a copy of Palahniuk's horror-satire novel Lullaby, which Gabby and Brian spoke about reading during their doomed adventure.
