American Buffalo

We had an exciting day here at The Coop today!

A set designer for the smash hit Broadway play American Buffalo came in and did some shopping. They bought some great antiques to be used onstage, including that gorgeous old wooden rocking horse you’ve all had your eye on.

American Buffalo stars John Leguizamo, Haley Joel Osment of The Sixth Sense, and Cedric the Entertainer.

American Buffalo can be seen at the Belasco Theatre, 111 West 44th Street, Between Broadway and 6th Avenue, New York, NY. 

This wasn’t our first experience with a set dresser. We’ve had quite a few designers come into the store in the past who’ve snapped up everything from bed linens, to pitcher and bowl bathroom sets, to kitchen canisters, furniture pieces, lawn ornaments and vintage hats. These items went on to be used in tons of commercials, plays, movies and print ads.

If you’re a set designer, come on in and check us out. Please introduce yourself to the folks at the registers, let us know what you’re buying props for, we’d love to link your movie or commercial here on the site!!
