Halloween, Christmas props galore at Lowry Park Zoo sale

If you're the type who goes all out to decorate your house and yard for Halloween or Christmas, you might want to plan on getting up early Saturday.

The Lowry Park Zoo is holding its annual white elephant sale starting at 9 a.m. (with 8 a.m. early admission for zoo pass holders). And that means many of the items that are for sale were originally purchased for use in special events and holiday displays for events like Wild Wonderland and ZooBoo. Shoppers will also have the opportunity to purchase retail fixtures, merchandising supplies and other items only available to the trade.

Items range from less than a dollar (for jewelry) to several hundred (for a vampire). There are thousands to choose from under a 60- by 80-foot tent, including haunted house props and costumes, Christmas and holiday decor, lights and decorations of all sizes, merchandising racks and retail fixtures, and premium collectibles. Most items are used and all will sell "as is."
