The January NYC Big Flea Antiques Market show is changing venues and dates

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.


First and foremost, I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

Dee Dee Sides, CEO & Promoter of the NYC Big Flea Antiques Market, sent an email this past weekend about a forced change of dates and venue for the January show at the Lexington Ave. Armory. She wrote “We received notice from the 69th Regiment Armory and the state of NY that they just discovered the Lexington Avenue Armory has high levels of lead toxicity and they are having to close the facility.”

The Hammerstein Ballroom at the Manhattan Center

The original show was scheduled for the weekend of January 21-22, 2017, but due to the new venue’s hours, the new dates will be Thursday – Saturday, January 19-21, 2017. The show will now be held at The Manhattan Center, in two adjacent ballrooms, including the Hammerstein Ballroom, 34th St. and 8th Ave, NYC. It’s a central location, a block from the world-famous, original Macy’s store. The new hours will be Thursday, Jan. 19th, 1-7 PM, Friday, Jan. 20th, 9 AM – 7 PM, and Saturday, Jan. 21st, 9 AM – 7 PM. No show on Sunday.

We will be bringing really great, fresh merchandise that was accumulated since our last show at the beginning of November. We’ve been buying like crazy in anticipation of good selling at this show and the Florida shows. Hope you can make it. It will be a new experience for us and probably you too.

After the NYC Flea Market, we’ll be traveling to Miami for the Miami Antiques + Art + Design Show, February 3 – 5, 2017. This is the airport show, which will be new and improved, with many additional exhibitors. The changes are happening because the Original Miami Beach Antiques Show will no longer be in Miami Beach, instead changing its name to The Original Miami Antique Show and moving to a new location in southwest Miami. It will all make for an interesting winter season.
