I will do my best to publish a new post every Monday.
We haven’t exhibited at any antique shows since February, 2020, when we were last at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC; the happy idiots. We had heard of a virus in Wuhan, China, but it didn’t have anything to do with us. Right? Within a couple of weeks we were on total lockdown.
We’ve been out and about since we had our three shots, but always with masks at all indoor activities. We shop at stores, we went to a Broadway show, etc., but not indoor restaurants. So with a bit of trepidation, we will exhibit at our first show in almost two years at The Original Miami Beach Antique Show, January 20 – 23, 2022. We’ll wear masks the entire time we’re in the venue and hope that our guests will do so too.
Business has been pretty good during the pandemic, so I’ve been busy buying and selling. We have an incredible assortment of wonderful new items for the show. I expect people will still fly in and drive in from afar, but I’m not sure about the attendance. It may be strong as people have been itching to get out and do things, or it may be weak, if people are still afraid. I’ll surely let you know in a future blog.
In the meantime, I’m very much looking forward to going to beautiful, warm Miami, in the middle of the winter, to do business and have some fun. I hope you’ll join me.
Let me know what interests you, even if you don’t see it on my website. I’ve got lots of items that I haven’t listed yet and I know how to locate what you desire.
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.
