The Original Miami Beach Antique Show

The Original Miami Beach Antique Show is the largest indoor antique show in the world showcasing more than 900 established dealers from 22 countries, and an additional 100 new exhibitors every year. It is one of the longest running shows in Florida and has been going on for 51 years. It brings together some of the best dealers in the world with their fabulous and unique collections featuring merchandise and antiques from the 17th to 19th centuries.

The Original Miami Beach Antique show takes place at the Miami Beach Convention Center in early February. It draws in thousands of collectors, curators, sellers, buyers, owners of galleries, regular art and antiques aficionados and wealthy consumers with high-end taste. There are usually around 20,000 attendees during the popular five-day event.

In addition to admiring art and purchasing, shoppers are encouraged to bring one item for appraisal by a Worthologist, who help people to value, preserve and sell their valuables. The Worthologists are present at the show thanks to one of its platinum sponsors, WorthPoint, and they will provide the item the consumers bring unbiased and expert opinions and evaluations and assign it a fair market value.
