I'm getting super excited for this weekend!! Just wondering with the pik-a-tkt - what has been the "best" show you have won, or have seen someone win? And how common is it to win? I had no luck last year, but I wasn't expecting to since I only bought 6 tickets

She tried to fit me for her show coat from “It Shoulda Been You” (which was clearly too small for my large frame), and was basically feeling me up to see how it fit. I remember my friends standing off to the corner looking really confused and when I finished up at her table, I told my friends “I think I was just frisked by Tyne Daly”. I later went back and had her sign and personalize a GYPSY playbill. I also was kicking myself later because I realized one of the pieces of costume jewelry she was selling (which my cash-strapped self couldn’t afford) turned out to be the long pearl necklace she wore in the finale of GYPSY

Also got tickets for some magic show or the bubble show, but forgot to ever use them.Many years I win nothing, though.
Has anybody won anything from the "Live auction". Seems like everything goes for a great amount of money.

I’m eager to get to The Public’s table in hopes that they’ll have the signs from the Delacorte Theater like they have the past two years in a row (they go pretty fast)."Good call on AiA! I regret not grabbing the "F*** You I'm a Prophet!" mug when I was there.I ended up with a business trip to NYC Mon-Tues so I'm flying down from Boston first thing tomorrow morning. Looking forward to my second visit to the flea after a three or four year hiatus. Also finally seeing Cursed Child tomorrow, so I'll have time to shop beforehand and then have a little time in between if there was anything I saw in the morning that I'd be interested in but at a lower price if it lasts long enough.Hoping the closed show table has some of the key chains made from the King Kong support cables. Didn't take advantage when they were offered as part of the BCEFA collection going on when I saw the show. Really a lot of what I'll be looking for will be closed show stuff; American Psycho, Groundhog Day, AiA...but let's be realistic, I'm sure there will be plenty that might speak to me beyond that :)

Biggest want is definitely a cast signed poster from The Prom.

I'm planning to get there around 11-11:30 (coming from out of state). Think that should be fine for finding Waitress/Moulin Rouge/Yiddish Fiddler stuff, or am I better off trying to get there right at 10am?

Just can't guarantee what will be there.
The last time I was there right before 10:00, they didn't allow people on the streets until 10:00. I was on 8th and people were lined up there. I am thinking of going in later in the day.
Does the crowd thin a bit after matinees go up?
If anyone is interested in a Tony Voter kit from The Prom (a ton of signed stuff) I’m selling it for what I paid $70. More details via PM
Bettyboy72, I always go late in the day when it isn't as busy. Maybe not as much stuff but less crowded and I still find things to buy.
The Moulin Rouge table was quite disappointing...very sparse and extremely limited merchandise. I saw some regular unsigned Playbills, some Pride Week t-shirts, and a few signed papers and photos. That was it. Surprised they didn't try to do more.Speaking of failed efforts, anybody find it bizarre that Harry Potter has never had a table at the Flea Market? It's disappointing they haven't found a way to participate.
