I'm still thinking about the items that were stolen. How can anyone enjoy owning something that they stole? Knowing that they took something that could have raised money for a good charity? What a waste.

Besides the HAIR stuff I am almost 99% sure other "lesser" stuff was stolen from other tables.

When I was at the table that I brought my "Your welcome america" playbill. A guy was looking at a signed 33 variations playbill which was 75$. I wanted the playbill so I waited to see if he brought it. He held onto it for a few minutes just eyeballing stuff.
A few minutes later he walked away from the table and I could not find the playbill ANYWHERE in the bin. I bet so many people just picked stuff up and got away with it because of how crowded it was.

I have a question.

The old playbills from now to say 20-30 years ago, are they actually old or are they reprinted?

I made a return visit at 4:15pm. The crowds were much less, quite manageable. Several tables were already closing, and by 5pm most of the downstairs had packed up and left. (one downstairs space, with mostly non-theatrical clothing, books, etc. had a "free - help yourself" sign up - I took a few paperbacks.)

I can imagine that the load-in and load-out must be miserable, when you consider that normally they can take their vans and trucks right up to their tables. That may be why there were some unusual bargains very late. I picked up two of the Playbill Broadway Yearbooks for $5 each at the Playbill table. Those suckers are HEAVY!

At the Actor's Equity Table, where there were lots of books and lots of LPs, it was a "take this big bag and fill it up for $5.00" time - got about 8 books, all theatre-related.

Edward Albee was at the Dramtists Guild table, looking quite bored.

I grabbed some more CDs:

$3.00 - The Last Five Years
$3.00 - 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (OBC)
$2.00 - The Wedding Singer (OBC)
$1.00 - Doctor Doolittle (OLC)
$1.00 - Fosse (OBC)
$1.00 - Cabaret (OBC)
$1.00 - An Evening WIth Frank Loesser

All in all, spent $62 for 22 CDs (all but 2 were original cast albums), 11 books, and the 2 Playbill Yearbooks.

2016 These Paper Bullets (1/02) Our Mother's Brief Affair (1/06), Dragon Boat Racing (1/08), Howard - reading (1/28), Shear Madness (2/10), Fun Home (2/17), Women Without Men (2/18), Trip Of Love (2/21), The First Gentleman -reading (2/22), Southern Comfort (2/23), The Robber Bridegroom (2/24), She Loves Me (3/11), Shuffle Along (4/12), Shear Madness (4/14), Dear Evan Hansen (4/16), American Psycho (4/23), Tuck Everlasting (5/10), Indian Summer (5/15), Peer Gynt (5/18), Broadway's Rising Stars (7/11), Trip of Love (7/27), CATS (7/31), The Layover (8/17), An Act Of God (8/31), The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (8/24), Heisenberg (10/12), Fiddler On The Roof (11/02), Othello (11/23), Dear Evan Hansen (11/26), Les Liaisons Dangereuses (12/21) 2017 In Transit (2/01), Groundhog Day (4/04), Ring Twice For Miranda (4/07), Church And State (4/10), The Lucky One (4/19), Ernest Shackleton Loves Me (5/16), Building The Wall (5/19), Indecent (6/01), Six Degrees of Separation (6/09), Marvin's Room (6/28), A Doll's House Pt 2 (7/25) Curvy Widow (8/01)

Old. Downstairs, they had boxes of playbills which were labeled by years. I believe it started around 1960.

My Equus and Cats playbill are just old playbills. The playbill seems to be a little bigger (both in size and content).
They didnt fit good in my playbill binder.

Also older playbills seem to have ALOT of ciggarette ads in them :p

They're old. Many of them are held in acid free plastic. If you take them out, they have the old book smell, which I love.

I spent more than I usually do, but I was over the moon with my "What Hump?" backpack.

I felt bad about the Hair table stuff getting stolen so I gave them $2. I wish I could've afforded to buy more.

I wanted one of those Avenue Q boxes, but changed my mind when I found out there was no way to make the mouth move. And they cost $150? Wow, I'm glad I changed my mind.

One of the highights of my day was not what I bought, but the fact that my dad walked up to the Shrek table, took one look at Christopher Sieber and said "Hey! That guy's a Broadway actor!". Then he bought Chris's autograph, not putting two and two together that he has a signed poster at home.

orangeskittles, sorry I don't know how to quote posts but you can see the pic here:

re: What Did You Get at the BCEFA Broadway Flea Market?

You can't see ALL the words but the photographer took the pic horizontally at first and John was like, "Can we take it again so we can get her awesome shirt in the frame?" He asked me where I got it from and everything and Scott Nevins picked me out of the line as a person with something funny for a celebrity to sign. He recommended I get it autographed across the tatas. re: What Did You Get at the BCEFA Broadway Flea Market? He also said he's going to sing extra good for me on Tuesday because that's when I'm going to see "Birdie." He was really nice and SO SEXY up close! Did a lot of others get pics with him? The line for him was insane. They had a guaranteed line and then a whole separate line for those who they were going to try to fit in but they couldn't guarantee a spot because I think John had to leave for the matinee.

I bought too much stuff. I'm also now banning myself from flea markets and large yard sales.

Noises Off-T.R. Knight was in the cast.
Into the Woods-Revival
Smokey Joe's Cafe
Rent-June 1997
Cats-March 1987
A Class Act

13 of the ticket things-I won nothing-$13
Xanadu Cd-$10
Spamalot Coconuts-$2
Equality Pin-$1
Flea Market Poster-$20
Noon Celebrity Table-$25
Leading Men DVD (The First One)-$20
Playbill Cards-$1
Window Card of shows from June 2008-May 2009-$1

And my best and most impulsive purchase of the day:

The Spamalot Cast Board-I got it for $25 at the end of the day. I bought it because I had eyed it earlier in the day, but didn't think I could carry it. Of course, it was a little heavy, but I managed. So yeah, I was the girl walking around the city around 6:15-6:30 with that. I left as soon as I bought it.

I never got down to the bottom floor. I guess I should be glad. I was basically walking around aimlessly, probably getting in the way because everytime I saw an empty spot somewhere or at least one that wasn't too crowded, I went over there. I put no logic into walking around. I definitely did miss things. I got in a little after 10, walked around, went to the celebrity table for an hour, walked for 30 minutes more and left for lunch and Next to Normal. I went back for about 30 minutes after that. My biggest issues were trying to look at playbills for the most part.
