The 12th annual Broadway Flea Market will be held Sunday, Sept. 27, according to a spokesperson at Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The Sunday date is a departure for the yearly event, usually held in Times Square's Shubert Alley on a Saturday. The availability of city permits was greater for Sunday, explained BC/EFA. Other than the change in day, however, many of the other Flea facts remain the same. As always, a Grand Auction will be held. There will be the usual "celebrity table" full of Broadway, Off-Broadway, sitcom and soap opera stars with their John Hancocks at the ready. The event will last 10 AM to 7:30 PM.

It is too early to say which stars will be in attendance or what will be auctioned, but items on the block last year included walk-ons in several Broadway shows and New York-based television programs. Of course, all proceeds from the Flea Market and auction will go to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Last year's event raised $484,000.
