This is  unbelievable. I've never seen so much gross marketing of a 
personality, except  maybe for Elvis. Are there many Lucy fans that are this nuts 
to want to buy  Lucy luggage tags and birdhouses??

Yup.  There's also an annual Lucy Fest and a Desi-Lucy Playhouse and a  
week of related events.  They contributed a substantial amount to the  theatre 
but aren't currently involved in the events.  The house on Lucy  Lane is 
their only involvement at this point.
