Village Valuables, one of the largest yard sales in central Ohio, has been known for its share of wild attractions and this year is no different.
Dr. Brian Santin is selling his 1954 Flxible bus, originally manufactured by the Flxible Co. in Loudonville, Ohio, which he will be parking at his house at the corner of Fifth and Beck streets.
Price tag: $100,000.
But it's not just any old bus: It was converted into an RV in 1983 with fixtures popular at the time, Santin said.
"When it was converted, the fabrics, the cabinetry -- all 1983," he said.
Santin, who owns another converted bus, said he's selling the Flxible per the request of his wife, Crystal.
"I'm only allowed to have one bus at a time," he said.
Village Valuables will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 20, throughout German Village.
Organizers, however, are stressing it is illegal to sell items in Schiller Park without a permit or permission.
More than 10,000 people are expected to converge on the community, choosing from the traditional to the offbeat.
Seth Seymour said those familiar with the event can once again expect an ample selection of merchandise at his house, 792 Mohawk St.
His parents -- Allen and Patty Seymour, a retired couple who own a farm in Chillicothe -- are hard-core antique enthusiasts. They bring truckloads of merchandise to the sale.
"My mom has always talked about having her own antique shop, so this is one way for her to live out her dream once a year," Seth Seymour said.
Seymoursaid many of his family members join in the celebration and start the day at 4 a.m.
They put up tents to keep the collectibles from being damaged.
It has become a sort of tradition at Village Valuables, and Seymour said he has seen customers return several years in a row.
"We have a great time," he said. "It's fun to see all those people come to German Village."
