It’s back! The Original Miami Beach Antique Show that has been a mainstay for visitors and locals for 58 years is back on Miami Beach. The show had to relocate 20 miles from Miami Beach for the last two years while the Miami Beach Convention Center was renovated. It has returned to an updated, spacious building.
You need a couple of days to walk the booths of the show’s 700 dealers from more than 30 countries. They brought their best merchandise. If you are looking for a vintage watch, or great piece of fine jewelry, this is the show – half the convention center was jewelry booths. Like most antique shows today there were a lot of name-brand designer vintage items – handbags, jewelry, boxes, plus Asian antiques, period furniture, silver, glass and ceramics. Next year’s show is early, Jan. 4-8, 2020, because the Super Bowl will be held Miami in February. This makes it possible to visit Miami over the winter holidays and stay for what is now the best antique show in Miami. You don’t have to just shop the show, there is also a fun flea market on most Sundays in the winter on nearby Lincoln Road. We have found some bargains there!
