I am planning a trip to New York City the weekend of the 2019 flea market this year. I am very pleased to see the list of tables that will be offering collectibles and memorabilia this year ( just posted on the BCEFA site )as the list usually comes out quite close to the date of the event. I have been going for the past few years and I am always very pleased with the rare items that I find at the different tables. Having seen and enjoyed Moulin Rouge and Hadestown on my most recent trip I will be spending some time at both those tables and I am eager to see what they will have up for sale.For those of you that are going this year and for those not able to make it I will be happy to look out for items for you fellow broadway lovers/ collectors.You can either post your wish list here or send me a personal message. I will be able to text you that day if I see anything that you wish so I can let you know what the prices are like. I personally enjoy collecting opening night gifts and Tony voter memorabilia as well as promotional items.I have many duplicates items that I purchased in previous years so if anyone is interested in trading items in their collection that weekend please let me know.I will be checking this site regularly I will be happy to respond to any of your questions or needs. Looking forward to a sunny day on September 22 which happens to be my birthday !
If you happened to find a pre-Broadway playbill (Atlantic Theatre) for The Band's Visit, I've been on the lookout for one for quite a while! Also pretty much anything Come From Away related, especially rare items that they don't sell at the theatre/online.
northlandfan, you are a very kind soul. I live in Mexico so I always enjoy Flea vicariously through people's posts. I can't think of something specific I want off the top of my head (or, well, I want everything) but if your list isn't full of requests, I'll definitely message you.
Ooooh I'd very likely be interested in the Tony Voters book! Do you by any chance remember what the price was?

Any shows previewing the stuff they're selling? I'm not up to date on all the social medias.

And lately it’s been more clear how they manipulate the lineup in order to get people coming multiple times. I don’t think Andre De Shields being separated from the rest of the Hadestown cast is coincidental. I just love rummaging for old Playbills, running into various stars (I’ve had some great encounters over the years), and then getting a ton of cheap stuff at the end of the night when it’s basically a fire sale (though that’s been less and less each year)

To the poster who asked me who I would be interested in-maybe a few legends thrown in the mix to add some excitement. I'd definitely pay top dollar to meet a legend.
If anyone is planning on being at the flea market this year please message me here or privately as perhaps we can meet and increase our chances of finding specific collectibles at the various tables. The crowds can be crazy busy at times.I would be happy to look for items you’re interested in while I am looking for my own that day and vice versa! Thank God for teamwork and cell phones!
Cool! Looking forward to going for the first time. Lucky it's on at the same time I'm visiting New York. I've got a 3pm Hadestown that afternoon, so I will just go earlier to the flea market. :)

Sure, most of these people are on stage regularly and you could probably see them at the stage door but there are plenty of fan favorites. I imagine they'll raise a lot of money. I'm sure the way people are split up also helps manage traffic. Anyone remember which tables always sell the T-shirts and plastic cups? I know I'll definitely be getting something so I want to hit them last so I'm not carrying them around all day while browsing elsewhere.
