BCEFA FLEA MARKET COLLECTORS UNITE!!#1
Posted: 9/12/17 at 7:29pm

I will be going to the flea market for the second year in a row. Found some amazing collectibles last year and looking forward to checking out the Hamilton Dear Evan Hansen and Great Comet  tables this year. If anybody reading this post has an idea as to what will be sold at these tables please let me know so I can budget myself accordingly!

Last year advance notice allowed me to purchase a Hamilton off Broadway window card which I was desperately looking for.....Kudos to the people at the Public for previewing this information.

I think it would be very interesting if those people attending this year list their collectibles most wanted as some of us may already have double copies of such items and would be willing to trade fellow collectors for items desperately wanted. I would be happy to meet some fellow collectors on Sunday to either trade or help each other search for interesting items. For those who cannot attend I would be happy to check out the tables for you while I am there. Please list your wish list for purchase or trade here!

I don't know if they are even having a table but I would pay someone good money to pick me up something from the War Paint table. I know the crew has these really cute war paint totes if anyone sees one and is willing to pick it up for me I will pay you back and pay for shipping!

I would love a copy of the Tony Voter script of A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 or any other libretti. I have stuff I can trade or sell in return, plus maybe pay extra than what it was offered. #ButDontGetCrazy

It's probably really unlikely since the show is closed already (and I've never been to New York and therefore am clueless as to how tables n stuff work), but literally any cast-signed Falsettos things would be cool to have. I'd pay you back for the item and for shipping - but like someone else said, not too crazy.

I know it's super unlikely (and probably impossible) that the show's merch would be sold at the flea market so if anyone has cast-signed Falsettos stuff I'd be down to buying it from ya. If you were selling.

I'm hoping to find some set/costume designs that I can frame and add to the DOLLY shrine I have in my hallway.

How common are prop pieces at the flea market? II'm not in NYC but a friend of mine is going and they offered to pick up some things and I'm hoping to get some props from Wicked or if they have any out, Anastasia.

Thank you for starting this thread! Great comet has made such an impact on my life and I unfortunately did not have the chance to see it before it closed. If you could find any great comet things and I mean anything, please PM me and I'll gladly pay you back and shipping as well. Thank you!

I have gone the last 3 years.   Each year, Wicked has had a booth with various props and costumes pieces for sale, but at ridiculous prices.     One year they had taken the old curtain and from a billboard display and made items from the materials.  Those were cool.

My friend bought the dining room table used in Pippin!   Got to have Thanksgiving dinner on said table that year.  :)

I wouldn't say every table has them. A couple of years, Mormon has been selling the chicken held by the butcher in Hasa Diga, and Phantom always has the notes from the Phantom sent to Andre and Firmin. But you can't bet that everyone (or even most?) will.

Doesn't PHANTOM also always have used ballet shoes?

Yes, and old masks.

You could totally get something from Wicked. They always have costumes. Not sure about what constitutes props for that show but of all the shows, Wicked is your best bet for something besides the stuff that's already sold at the merch tables. Be prepared to pay handsomely though. I haven't seen many props from the other shows but you never know. The easiest is shows where the "prop" is a slip of paper. I would love it if the cast of Comet had some extra "letters" that they hand draw.

1) What are the prices like in general?

2) How much do the used ballet shoes from Phantom run?

Stuff can run for less than a dollar to a few hundred dollars.  Sorry I can't be of much help there.  It depends on the item,  table,  and how much people are willing to pay.

I've heard that great comet is selling curtain panels embossed with the logo. I'm dying for one and a letter if they're selling those but I don't live in NYC. Let me know if you're willing to pick something up for me, I'll pay for it + shipping!

Same here. Would love Great Comet stuff but I'm not remotely close to NYC. If you're attending, It would be a huge favour if you could pick something for me. I can pay for shipping and everything, of course. It would mean the world to me!

Do they ever announce nice anything they're selling before time? I have someone that is going to pick me up one of the GC curtain pieces, but I have no idea how much it will be. $20? $50? $100+?

You might find some information if you haunt relevant Instagram, twitter, facebook, etc. accounts. Probably not prices, but you never know.

Great Comet confirmed the curtain pieces (which are presumably pretty small) are $25

Does your contact know how many of these curtain items will be sold at the table that day?

wondering if they will be going fast?

as well do you know if they will be selling play bills and /or window cards signed or unsigned either with or without Josh's picture on it. Any other collectibles?

Any information would be appreciated.....

If anyone has a Brittain Ashford as Sonya letter from the show they would be interested in selling, please PM me.

Also, for those asking to have items picked up for them. There is a Facebook Great Comet group with a spreadsheet of people who are going to the flea and would be willing to pick up for others, just FYI.
