TAMPA, Fla. - At Saturday's big tent white elephant sale, you can buy a gray elephant, but not a white one. This is Lowry Park Zoo's chance to thin out its collection of odds and ends from special events.
"We have a lot of props that are great for Halloween and the holidays," said Trisha Rothman of Lowry Park Zoo.
If you have a fondness for over-sized candy corn, you might want to get here early. But if you have a sweet tooth for something else, how about a his and hers vampire set. They can be yours for $1,000. If that doesn't rattle your bones, perhaps something more furry.
"This guy is probably the biggest guy at the sale. He is a 7-foot tall werewolf. He's got beautiful blue jeweled eyes, he's in perfect condition," explained Rothman.
If decorating big for the holidays is your thing, you're in luck. There's something to satisfy every taste. If you need something to carry it all in, Santa's sleigh is available, but there's only one.
"A lot of the items that we have for sale here are actual collectors items. And some of them have been product lines that have been complete discontinued. So that makes them that much more valuable," Rothman said.
From seasonal to situational, it's all here. If you're looking for bizarre and unique, this is the place for you. You can spend as little as 25 cents, up to several hundred dollars.
It's free to get into Lowry Park Zoo's white elephant sale. You don't have to pay zoo admission to get in. The gates open at 9:00 AM, but if you're a zoo member, they open at 8:00 AM.
