(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — U.S. Antique Shows recently announced that it is changing the date of the 2021 Original Miami Beach Antique Show from January to March. The decision to adjust the show dates was based on continued concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, including travel restrictions both domestically and internationally, as well as ongoing restrictions on large group gatherings. Originally slated to take place in late January, the new show dates are Friday, March 12, to Tuesday, March 16, 2021, allowing for a show that runs over the course of a full weekend. OMBAS will again take place at its original home in the Miami Beach Convention Center.

“Our community is incredibly eager to come together again in person. After consulting with many of our long-standing exhibitors and attendees, as well as our advisory board, we made the decision to secure dates in mid-March in order to ensure maximum success for the event for all customer types,” said Gannon Brousseau, executive vice president of the Emerald Jewelry Group. “The demographic of both exhibitors and attendees of the Original Miami Beach Antique Show is international; moving the dates to March will ideally allow for increased participation for overseas customers seeking to travel to Miami.”

Now in its 57th year, OMBAS showcases antique and vintage jewelry, watches, furniture, art, home décor and collectibles from over 700 vendors hailing from over 30 countries. The event, which is open to the public, also features several educational opportunities, including its popular Jewelry History Series, Appraisal Day, and complimentary guided educational tours. OMBAS will once again be held in the Miami Beach Convention Center, which recently underwent a $620 Million renovation. This state-of-the-art facility now boasts LEED Certification, which indicates a high level of indoor environmental quality, a striking new exterior, and beautifully landscaped public parks, allowing for an all-encompassing show experience.

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
