The Original Miami Beach Antique Show opens today, January 28, 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-beach-1-2016The Original Miami Beach Antique Show opens today, January 28, 2016, at noon, and will end on Monday at 5 PM. Visit the show and enjoy it at the Miami Beach Convention Center, possibly for the last time (at least that’s what a couple of the dealers are saying). As I’ve said before, The Miami Beach Convention Center will undergo major renovations, forcing the Original Miami Beach Antique Show to move next year, 2017, and possibly more years after that.

Setup was a bit different this year, having been extended to three days from the usual two. Management anticipated problems that never materialized, so setup was smooth, easy and relaxed. I was able to purchase a few very fine items to complement the already fabulous selection I brought. One of them was a real kick to find. It’s an all glass Tiffany Arabian lamp that I’ve never seen in this large, 20″ tall, size. Plus it has four carved insects on the shade. Fabulous!

Monday’s blog will be delayed until Tuesday, so I can tell you the results of the show. It’s one you won’t want to miss.


I’ve been quite busy buying and selling recently, partly because I’ve listed many new items on my website. I need to buy more, so if you have something great, please offer it to me. 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 always strive to offer the finest objects for sale on my website and at every show. I will continue to list more as often as possible. Please click here to take a look.There are many items for sale, sold items with prices and free lessons about glass and lamps. And remember to keep reading my blog.
