I am now publishing once a week, on Monday.
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 the Labor Day weekend, when we’ll exhibit at the Baltimore Art, Antique & Jewelry Show, one of the best shows of the year. In the meantime, we’re still very much in business. Please email or call to buy, sell or trade.
I 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.
