The Miami antique shows start next week, Friday, January 22, 2016

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.


miami-airport-1-2016(2)The Florida antique shows are about to begin. Yippee! Next week buyers and sellers will converge on Miami from all over the world to transact business, making it an exciting time of year. The first show is called the Miami Antiques + Art + Design Show, but is often referred to as the Airport Show. It will open to the public on Friday, January 22, 2016 at noon. Business is usually very good with lots of action — like Vegas, but without the gambling.

Last year in front of my booth at the Miami National Antique Show Last year’s Airport Show was canceled by the promoter, U.S. Antique Shows, leaving a vacuum. Dolphin Fairs had sold the Airport Show to U.S. Antique Shows several years ago. When U.S. Antique Shows announced a few months ago they were folding the show, Dolphin Fairs stepped back in and started a new show to replace it. It looks and smells just like the original show, but isn’t. Got it?

Antique promoters and dealers are not dummies. What’s better than doing business in warm, sunny southern Florida while the rest of the nation freezes? The following week will bring the Original Miami Beach Antique Show. May I suggest you come to Miami a few days early? Visit the Airport show first, rest a couple of days in Miami and visit the second show. You’ll get first crack at some of the merchandise you’ll see the following week. Need a place to stay or the name of a great restaurant? I’ve got answers, so make your arrangements now, if you haven’t done so already.

I’ve been quite busy buying and selling recently, partly because I’ve listed many new items on my website. I really need to buy more, so if you have something great, please offer it to me for sale. I am paying the highest prices of any dealer. My decisions are quick and my payments just as quick. Just snap a photo and email me a jpeg.

I will continue to list more as often as possible. Please click here to take a look.

We’re still very much in business between shows, especially since there are fewer shows nowadays. Please don’t hesitate to email or call. I always strive to offer the finest objects for sale on my website and at every show. There are many items for sale, sold items with prices and free lessons about glass and lamps. And remember to keep reading my blog.
