Zoo's annual garage sale offers giant skulls, tiki idols and more

Halloween decorators, start your engines! Lowry Park Zoo is holding its third white elephant sale on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (or until merchandise is gone). Many of the items were originally purchased for use in special events and holiday displays like ZooBoo and Wild Wonderland. Shoppers will also have the opportunity to purchase retail fixtures, merchandising supplies and other items only available to the trade. Based on the Facebook photos posted Thursday afternoon, some of the items are going to attract keen buyers. They include giant skulls and skeletons, plus some kitschy looking tiki idols. Items range from less than a dollar to several hundred. There are hundreds to choose from under a "big top" tent, including seasonal decor, lights and decorations, merchandising racks and retail fixtures, and collectibles. Most items are used and all will sell "as is." Zoo admission is not required to enter the sale. Shoppers will enter in the gated event space to the west of the zoo's main entrance. Visit for more information. — Times staff writer
