FleaBay lots will be posted beginning Monday, September 19, through the night of Saturday, September 24. Most items will be available for immediate purchase through eBay's "Buy It Now" feature, rather than bidding through the typical auction. Once an item is sold out, it is gone.

Early bidding also has already begun for the silent auction lots . Bidding will continue for the silent auction items in Shubert Alley during the in-person event, with lots rotating every 30 minutes between 10 am and 4 pm.

In lieu of the Autograph Table and Photo Booth, Broadway Cares will be offering the opportunity to sign up for a limited number of one-on-one video chats with Broadway stars (to take place at a later date). Details will be announced next week.

The 36th annual Broadway Flea Market & Grand Auction is sponsored by Mark Fisher Fitness, The New York Times and United Airlines.
