how does it get so late so fast? i feel like a broken record cause every post seems to be made at the 11th hour, close to midnight every single day.
jw is packing for an early flight so i’m about to shut down and lend a hand. in the meantime, i’m posting pics of the antique show at the miami beach convention center. it’s a block away from where i live so it was easy to check it out and stroll through. i was going to blow it off but thought better of it, after all, who knows what ever lies behind convention center doors? it was so worth it!
it would have been easy to create my perfect suite in one fell swoop. sorry for the blurry phone pics.
believe it or not it was mainly jewelry but there was plenty of frenchy candy too tucked in between some FaNtAsTiC jewels.
i wouldn’t mind this little lingerie chest for myself.
even some of the home decor was bejeweled like this sapphire frame. florida ladies sure were fabulous.
below is one of a few favorite booths. this one was run by a woman from buenos aires, and she had gorgeous stuff. everything from this baroque headboard to fortuny antique shoes. www.sp-antiques.com.
(le aforementioned fortuny shoes)
i became obsessed with sonny ideker’s collection of rare and antique books. he let me dig in and really study them all. it was heaven spending time with these precious gems. some were from the 1600s! (email: email@example.com)
i guess the white sets were calling to me
i may go back tomorrow and get this one if the fates align and it’s still there.
ok that’s my cue to scram, have a great night!
