It's the perfect sale for anyone looking to buy a real street parade-sized Chinese Dragon - ideal for a New Year's party with a difference.

Or perhaps a shopper eager to pick up a set of gargoyles - the perfect ice-breaker at a party, especially one for medieval religious architecture experts.

These items and more are among the bohemian collection of Scotland's weirdest props and costume department, being sold off as a result of hippy arts outfit te Pooka taking to the road.

The group has dazzled crowds at major events, including the opening of the Scottish Parliament and the Harry Potter book launch at Edinburgh Castle.
