Setting up at the Miami National Antiques Show, January 25, 2012

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. Monday’s post will be about the results of the Miami National Antiques Show.

We're just starting the setup

The Miami National Antiques Show started setting up yesterday and continues setting up until 5 PM today. By tomorrow, there will be a dazzling display at the opening of the show, which opens to the public on Friday, January 27th at noon and continues until Sunday, January 29th at 5 PM.

There's plenty left to do, but we'll get it all done on time

Although the show is smaller than it used to be, it still has high-powered exhibitors with spectacular items for sale. Many of the dealers will go on to exhibit at the Miami Beach Convention Center Show next week, but not all. A visit to this show is a great way to get first crack at many of the items that will be for sale next week. You’ll like what you see.

The third show of our Florida circuit starts next Thursday, February 2nd, with the important Miami Beach Convention Center Show. If you decide to visit only one of the Florida shows, make sure it’s this one! You’ll thank me. It’s huge and filled with the best dealers and a fabulous array of merchandise that you won’t find anywhere else. The big bonus is the weather. The temperature has been in the 70s and 80s every day. No more excuses! Make your plans now.


Wonderful Gallé dragonfly vase, just in

Look around my website. There are many items for sale, sold items with prices and free lessons about glass and lamps. I regularly add Tiffany vases, lamps and desk accessories, as well as French cameo glass by Galle and Daum Nancy and Louis Icart etchings. Here’s the link.
