Pink Elephant Antique Mall in Livingston, Illinois - Route 66 Roadside Attraction

The Pink Elephant Antique Mall is an old converted gym from the Livingston High School building that now serves as a flea market with more than 50 antique dealers. Located on the Mother Road, Route 66, you can spend an afternoon scouring the tables inside for treasures, eating at the 1950s-themed diner, or taking photos of the big attractions outside!

The Pink Elephant Antique Mall opened in 2005 and, when I first visited on an Illinois road trip in 2007, I checked out the giant pink elephant along with a couple of smaller gray twins, and a giant fiberglass beach guy. This antique mall was definitely worth going out of the way for!

Since that first trip to this Illinois roadside attraction, the Pink Elephant Antique Mall has only expanded in their kitsch! I visited again in 2021 and the facade is now painted in hot pink, white, and turquoise blue stripes and they’ve added several more tourist attractions including a big UFO Futuro house, a Uniroyal Gal dressed as a waitress, an ice-cream shaped Twistee Treat Diner facade, some big fiberglass chipmunks, a Harley Davidson muffler man, some fiberglass zoo animals, a big bicycle, a Big Boy statue, a Sinclair Dinosaur…and a “they swear its not a political statement” giant Donald Trump (but if you position yourself just right you can pretend that the fiberglass dinosaur next to him is eating his head off).

On your next Illinois or Route 66 road trip, stop at the Livingston antique mall to take some photos, grab lunch in the adjoining diner, and do a little shopping. Maybe you’ll even find a giant pink elephant for yourself!
