I am now publishing once a week, on Monday.
I was unable to post a new blog last Monday as we were in Europe on a buying trip. Next week I’ll post about some of our purchases.As some of you know, the Original Miami Beach Antiques Show is finally moving back into the Miami Beach Convention Center after 2½ years of construction. The show usually runs from Thursday to Sunday, but the promoters were forced to change their dates to Sunday – Wednesday. That upset some dealers who canceled their spaces in a mini-rebellion. The promoters got the message and decided to open half a day on Saturday. The latest news is that the show will open a full day on Saturday. So now the show is near-normal, with a full weekend followed by two weekdays. I hope some of the dealers who canceled will reconsider with the new dates.
Now the official new dates are Saturday, January 26, 2019 to Tuesday, January 29, 2019. The dealers will have three days to set up, Wednesday, January 23, 2019 to Friday, January 25, 2019.
Here is the announcement from the show promoters with the official hours.
Please note, our adjusted show dates and hours below:
Saturday, January 26: 11:00am – 8:00pm
Sunday, January 27: 11:00am – 7:00pm
Monday, January 28: 11:00am – 7:00pm
Tuesday, January 29: 11:00am – 5:00pm
*The show will no longer be open on January 30, 2019. The last show day is Tuesday, January 29, 2019*
No shows until January 18, 2019, when we’ll exhibit at the Miami Antiques + Art + Design Show at the Miami Airport Convention Center (MACC). It precedes the Original Miami Beach Antiques Show.
I’ll be listing new items soon, especially Tiffany desk set items, which make great Christmas gifts. Look for them soon.
I recently listed some of the new items on my website and will list more every week. Click Philip Chasen Antiques to take a look. I will make every effort to actively list new items as often as time permits. 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.
