(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.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
