The Original Miami Beach Antiques Show opened to the public this past Saturday at the newly renovated Miami Beach Convention Center. Opening day, Saturday, was a good day with excellent attendance and interest and with commensurate sales. What a difference a week makes.
Sunday started very slowly. There’s never a good reason to open at 11 AM on a Sunday, but most promoters think they know better. As the day went by, attendance picked up considerably, as well as interest and sales, including French glass and especially Tiffany lamps. We sold six Tiffany lamps in one day. Wowza!
The show is already a success with only two days of business. Hopefully we can do some business on Monday and Tuesday, as well. Ordinarily I post once a week on Monday, but I will post again this Wednesday with the final results of the show. So tune in on Wednesday.
No shows until October 20, 2022, when we’ll exhibit at the Baltimore Art, Antique & Jewelry Show. Two weeks later we’ll exhibit at the Antiques + Modernism Show in Winnetka, IL, starting on November 4, 2022.
