MICHIGAN CITY | It's true what they say, "one man's trash is another's treasure" so let’s reuse, renew and recycle your gently-used, unwanted goods and turn them into someone else's treasure! On April 27, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Zoo crew is teaming up with the Zoo society to organize a community market day sale at Krueger Memorial Hall located at 801 Liberty Trail.

This is the perfect opportunity to sell personal items you no longer want or need without having to advertise, hang signs or worry about the weather! You may donate your items for the zoo to sell or spaces are available for rent. There are some restrictions on the items that you will be permitted to sell and those who are interested in participating must register in advance with the zoo at (219) 873-1510. The cost per assigned space will be $15, which includes the use of three 8 foot tables. Participants may begin setting up no earlier than 7 a.m. and no later than 7:50 a.m. on the day of the sale or the day before on Friday, April 26 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. All items must be removed by 4 p.m. on Saturday after the sale, unless you wish to donate them to local charities.

Please mark your calendars to attend the sale, which will include books, CDs and videos, clothing, toys, stuffed animals, collectibles, animal artwork, jewelry, housewares and other unique items. There will be a concession stand open and the Zoo Mobile will be there with a few of the outreach animals for guest to learn about and visit with. There is no admission to attend the sale.

Stop in or call the Washington Park Zoo office at (219) 873-1510 to reserve your tables.
