Billy Leroy Bids Tent Adieu on March 9 (Plus: ‘Baggage Battles’ Trailer)

Speaking of iconic antiques-and-oddities purveyors, Billy Leroy has set a date for the goodbye party that will precede the teardown of his tent, which, a couple months after closing, is still standing next to the new mural at Houston Street and Bowery. While in Los Angeles shooting the sixth episode of his forthcoming Travel Channel show “Baggage Battles,” he told The Local, “The party is Friday, March 9 and we bury the tent the next day.” Check out the new teaser for “Baggage Battles” above: as previously reported, it premieres April 11.
