SCOTCH PLAINS -

Bowcraft Amusement Park in Scotch Plains closed for good this past season, but now you can own a piece of it.

The former owners of the shuttered park are selling everything on eBay, from kitchen appliances to fiberglass statues.

The rides are being sold through a separate company, including a carousel for $50,000.

The park opened back in 1946.

The entire area where the park is located will be rezoned into apartments.
