Ah, I got the Broadway one as well but would have preferred the Off-Broadway one because Julia Murney was in it instead of Sara. Oh well.

Postponing such an event in NYC is just about impossible, the rentals of tables, chairs, etc. the changing of schedules of those involved, including many theatrical people who have shows, out of town stuff, etc, you get the drift, So BCEFA made a call. and finding out ROSELAND was free made the only decision they could, it was an all night shift, Roseland has few lights of their own, so some were brought in, but again the set up and load in, takes a village. I saw some people being shoved around and a saw a lot of Broadway fans picking around stuff and having a gay ole time.
It was unfortunate that due to space the basement HAD to be used and the workers were just as hot and tired, so a lot of bargains were to be had.
Sorry if Mother Nature had a slight cry, maybe she was remembering those who didn't have BCEFA when they needed it and had to watch the Festival from above.
Let's hope the Sun smiles next year and we can enjoy the Flea Market in it's HOME, Shubert Alley.
Thanks to all who fought the crowds, had fun and contributed to a great cause.

Yankeefan007: ok, I tried to PM you but it didn't work. how much do you want for the Tale of Two Cities script?

You must remember all the same that at the crux of every game is knowing when it's time to leave the table... And it's important to be artful in your exit. No turning back, you must accept the con is done... It was a ball, it was a blast. And it's a shame it couldn't last. But every chapter has to end, you must agree.
~Dirty Rotten Scoundrels~

There's a special kind of people known as show people. We live in a world full of dreams. Sometimes we're not too certain what's false and what's real. But we're seldom in doubt about what we feel.
~Curtains~

It is a far, far better thing I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest I go to, than I have ever known.

I bought around 20 Sondheim LPs (shows, revues and concerts) which I am going to frame and hang on the walls of my apartment.

I also bought a good number of CDs and cassettes as well as hats and 2 clocks.

At the end of the day I picked up a few items for free, including a Deuce Opening Night seat cushion.

I spent a little over $100 today, but every item I purchased is something I am going to use (unlike previous years).

Just so everyone knows, it was VERY crowded from the opening until about 12:30, but it did calm down. While it is a much better experience in the Alley it was still fun (as long as you were willing to go with the crowd every now and then).

Total spent: $96

Wow!! I didn't realize how much I spent until I typed it all out! I guess it's a good thing though. I only went one other year & all I bought was a pair of vampire teeth from Dance of the Vampires for $1. So I made a marked improvement in my charitable expenses.

I went with the intention of finding a few cheap window cards. I was on the lookout for Little Shop & Xanadu... no Xanadu, but I was pleased to find Little Shop signed... and for under $20! Though right after I bought it, a girl walked up to the booth, inquired about another signed poster priced for $15 (Tarzan), offered $3 & got it!! Oh well. I'm not one to haggle... even though it was at the end of the day. It's for charity right?

Yes, kchenofan, it did get cooler at the end of the day. Though that probably had more to do with less people being there. I was there early on & once before they closed down. It was MUCH better (read: cooler/comfortable) towards the end. I was actually able to feel air flow!

And I too was curious about the pie throwing area, SweetQintheLights! I ran out of cash though. Each time I walked by I didn't see anything happening though. What gives?! It would have been fun to at least watch! Did they get any business?! If not, send them over to my apartment!

You got a nice haul, saveusmike. I love the Bea & Liza items! Maybe I should have actually bid on the silent auctions! I was there while the Liza one was happening. (Though I have my Liza CD signed from her Barnes & Noble appearance.)

And regarding them turning people away or not letting people in, I was at the front at about 1pm and saw that there was a line of people outside waiting to get in - I guess that they reached capacity, which I totally believed based on how crowded it was.

I forgot about my free stuff.

At the Avenue Q table, I bought their 2008 AIDS Walk shirt for $5, and I got 2 buttons and a cd sampler for free. And with my Spamalot Cast Board, I got the Fantasticks and Hairspray sampler cds. I also bought 2 brownies from one of the tables.

I think one thing they should have done was have signs around pointing to where the stairs were to go upstairs. I had to ask the people in charge of signing in volunteers because it was too crowded to figure out, and I thought they said it was by them. But, apparently not.

Diva, I think you look like Patti as well, but I honestly first thought of Edna Mode from The Incredibles (which is a compliment, since I think she's so fierce and adorable).
When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad
