Broadway Bazaar is Broadway's handmade home for unique, rare, and bespoke memorabilia from your favorite Broadway shows and beyond!
The creativity of The Great White Way goes far beyond the footlights. Many actors, stagehands, musicians; even front of house personnel, express their creativity in various ways outside of the theater and now they have a place to share their items with others. BroadwayBazaar.net caters to a specific demographic. We aim to satisfy the scores of likeminded individuals with a passion for “all things Broadway’”. In addition to offering the general public the chance to purchase items handmade by their favorite Broadway star(s), BroadwayBazaar.net will also offer rare Broadway show memorabilia irresistible to the Broadway collector.
