The venerable Palm Beach Winter Antiques Show returns for its 28th year January 14- 17, 2010. The show will take place at the Crowne Plaza in West Palm Beach and the entire hotel, from the lobby to the ballroom, will become one big, dazzling antiques fair.
This is a highly diversified show featuring over 50 antiques dealers, many of whom will be traveling from other countries to attend. With an emphasis on period furniture and accessories, fine art and a wide array of items for the serious collector and designer, the show truly offers something for everyone.
“This is a traditional antiques show with a Palm Beach flair,” said show organizer Zita Waters Bell, “and is known by all who attend as a great buying show. The show is vetted and excellence is our priority.” Bell went on to say that every effort is made to have an exclusive show with only the best in antiques. “As we did last year,” Bell continued, “our policy will allow art dating to the mid 20th century. We’ll also have an are we will call ‘A Touch of Vintage. Our recent Vintage Show & Sale was so well received, attendees asked if we could do it again, so we decided to add a handful of vintage dealers to the show.” A portion of the tickets sales will benefit Wellington-based ArtStart.
