Ripley’s: Eight-city hunt for more oddities starts in Orlando

Orlando-based Ripley Entertainment, which operates 32 “odditorium” attractions, will visit eight cities throughout 2013, in an attempt to add more oddities to its eclectic collections. The first stop of its Bizarre Buying Bazaar will be at the International Drive museum in Orlando on June 7-8.

Edward Meyer, Ripley’s vice president of exhibits and archives, will be on hand to make offers for personal belongings.

“We are hoping to find something that we can buy and put in our museums, not just here in Orlando, but in our whole collection,” he says.”We’re shopping for the whole company.”

Owners of oddities planning to attend the Ripley’s event, should email in advance with details on the items for sale. This will help Ripley’s researchers determine its rarity and its value.

The Orlando kick-off to the Bizarre Buying Bazaar will operate at 8201 International Drive from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 7-8. It’s open to the public, but folks wanting to tour the museum will have to pay regular admission.

About Nick LoCicero

Nick LoCicero
I am lucky enough to live in Orlando, Florida. Although my first love is Walt Disney World, I enjoy all the entertainment O-Town has to offer. My favorite Park is Epcot. My favorite attraction is Splash Mountain. I'm hopelessly addicted to Disney pins and Vinylmation. I love to write about the attractions and apparently podcast because I do like 8 of them. In the real world, I'm a cameraman for the news chopper Sky 13 and produce radio talk shows.
