This section is for the miscellaneous groupings of statues of people, animals and things as well as collections of other "stuff" that defy categorization. The examples include private and public collections, as well as fiberglass and concrete statue manufacturers.

Del Buono's Bakery
Haddon Heights, NJ
Del Buono's Bakery has a variety of large animal statues including a rooster, a gorilla, a cow, a donkey, a lion, a rabbit, a Poodle, and a couple pigs. Some of these figures appear to be mini golf cast-offs. There are also gold human figures which look like they were from a cemetery and wine barrels from who knows where. These photos are from 2009. By 2016, the building had been demolished and replaced with a larger one. Some of these statues are gone now. [map]

Germantown, IL
The front yard display at this residence featured a giant rabbit, cat and other animals. The Santas were there when this photo was taken in the summer of 2010. By 2013, these statues were all gone.

Phoenix, AZ
This residence belongs to Don Parks who has a huge collection of fiberglass statues and other stuff. He began decorating his front yard with his acquisitions in 1971. In 2012, Parks bought another house across the street and expanded his display. His collection fills the front and back yards of both houses as well as their interiors. Some of the statues included are a Paul Bunyan, two cowboys, two Hobo Joes, a Theodore the Chipmunk, and a Harbie. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

King's Concrete Specialties
Ware Place, SC
King's Concrete Specialties had a variety of fiberglass and concrete figures. In addition to the various animal statues, there were also a few advertising icons (bottom two rows above) including a Bob's Big Boy, a Tastee-Freez Twin, and a couple of Chip's Hamburgers mascots. These photos are from 2007. The fiberglass statues were being actively sold off in 2016. The Tastee-Freez Twin was sold to a private collector in 2016. The Chip's statues were still there at that point. [map]
