The results of the Miami Antiques + Art + Design Show, February 3-5, 2017

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.


The Miami Antiques + Art + Design Show is over. It’s been a modest success, for which I’m thankful. Attendance was light to moderate for the entire show, but enough of the right people showed up to make it profitable. French glass sold best, which has been the usual modus operandi for most shows.

We sold a very similar Walter p√Ęte-de-verre tray at the show

I don’t think the word is out yet that the show is new and improved. It’s much larger and better, so it’s worth a trip from anywhere. I think the show is going to get even bigger next year with the reopening of the second floor. That would be a great reason to visit. We’re signed up for next year in an even bigger booth.

I spent a lot of time on Monday creating a video of the show. I’m not a professional videographer, but I did my best with a complicated video editing program called Serif MoviePlus. Click here to view it. I would love to know what you think. PLEASE send me an email. philip@chasenantiques.com.

This week we’ll move to the Miami-Dade County Fair Expo Center in southwest Miami for the Original Miami Antique Show. It opens to the public this Friday at 12 PM and continues until Monday at 5 PM. I have no idea what to expect with this move to a new venue. I’ll keep you posted.

We’ll have this just-purchased, incredible Daum Nancy Blackbird vase at the show.

We always bring a strong inventory to Miami, but this year is exceptional. You won’t believe the quantity and quality of the French and American glass and lamps we’ll have at the show. We had to rent an additional showcase beyond the eight we already bring just to fit it all. Come and visit the show. It’s always good but this year it will be great!
