LA Antique Jewelry and Watch Show

The Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show, The Original  Miami Beach Antique Show, New York Antique Jewelry and Watch Show and the Miami Beach Antique Jewelry and Watch Show just to name a few. Mostly all of these shows are productive for the dealers that exhibit and the guests that visit. These shows are geared mostly for inter dealer business. However if you are looking to purchase yourself a one-of-a-kind piece and are luckily enough to know about these shows they can be a real treat. Most trade shows are terrible in there first few years or at least there first year. The LA Antique Jewelry and Watch Show was an exception to this rule. GLM’s marketing team did a much better than average job advertising the show. The turn out was much better than expected and will continue to grow with time. The public in this part of the country are looking for a very fine product at a very sharp price but there was plenty of buying and selling to do at this show. Next year should be much better and each year there after as well. At vintage jewelry events such as these it is not uncommon for there to be celebrity sightings as vintage jewelry and watches are very trendy now.

Why Are There Jewelry Buyers On Every Corner?

Jewelry Buyers on every corner

There are hundreds if not thousands of jewelry buyers in major metropolitan areas. Why? Because the more people, the more jewelry, the more jewelry being sold. Boca Raton, Florida is a major jewelry buying and jewelry selling area. There is a very mixed crowd in South Florida. a vast majority of the retirement population from all over the USA ends up in Florida. There are a number of reasons for this, one is the tax incentives involved for retirees. Another is the obvious, the GREAT weather!  Towns like Boca Raton that were very undeveloped 30 years ago are packed full of retirees and young people alike. As the retirees get used to the good casual life in Boca Raton they come to realize that they don’t wear there jewelry anymore because there life style has changed. Its hard to split jewelry amongst children and easier to split money, so they sell jewelry in Boca Raton. We will follow up to this article with more info shortly.
