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.

We started setting up the Miami National Antiques Show, today, January 23, 2013. We didn’t finish, but it went smoothly. One more day of setup and then the show will open to the public on Friday, January 25, 2013, at noon. I’m cautiously optimistic the show will go well, but I’m also a realist. My results at this show haven’t been stellar in recent years, but I brought a really great selection, so the show might go really well. You’ll find out when when you read Monday’s blog.

I walked the show floor, so I’ve got a good idea of the quality of the dealers at the show. It’s super. There are some really outstanding displays. I assure you, if you make the effort to come a little early to Miami, you’ll find some great items for sale at the show. You’ll get first crack at outstanding merchandise, before these same dealers show their wares at next week’s big and important Original Miami Beach Antiques Show. FYI, it was 73° degrees today in Miami. What was your temperature? -10°, 0°? Just get on a plane and come down here right away. Ten-hut!

I will be posting videos on YouTube of my lecture on French Cameo Glass to the Metropolitan Glass Club. I need some time to edit the videos. When they’re ready, I’ll put the link on my website and here in my blog.

  1. Hello, Phillip. I have four Galle vases and I would like to confirm their authenticity. I am happy to pay for your advice. I understand that you charge $150 for the first and $75 for each thereafter. Please confirm and let me know how to proceed. Thanks.
