It’s a great time for antique enthusiasts to hit South Florida.
With the Miami Airport Antiques Show and The Original Miami Beach Antique show landing in the area soon, there’ll be plenty of blasts from the pasts to get your hands on, including treasures at the brand new Miami Antique Extravaganza.
Take a trip to through time Jan. 24, 25 and 26 when the new show heads to the Miami-Dade County Fairgrounds for its debut. The event will showcase more than 400 vendors—that’s a whole lot of antiques and collectibles. But don’t think it’s the same old, same old stuff as your every-other-week local antique market. This show will feature both nationally known, as well as international vendors selling estate jewelry, designer vintage, mid-century furniture, glass, watches, coins, art, even vintage textiles.
You can catch a preview of the bygone era goods on Friday morning from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for $25. And just in case this wacky weather we’ve recently been experiencing gets any wackier, the show will mostly be indoors at the Arnold Hall and Coliseum, with 100 additional vendors located outside. Be sure to bring any knick-knacks that have taken a whack, as glass and crystal repair, jewelry repair, silver plating and free art and coin appraisals will be available on site.
The Miami-Dade County Fairgrounds are located one mile off the Florida Turnpike at exit 25 (US 41 Tamiami Trail). To find the hours of the show for each day or to purchase tickets, log on to http://www.miamiae.com/.
