Industry Update: The Annual Baltimore Summer Antiques Show Recap

Raymond lee Jewelers recaps the 31st Annual Baltimore Summer Antiques Show

The Baltimore Summer Antiques Show 2011

Last week we gave you the break down of what to expect at the 31st Annual Baltimore Summer Antiques Show, and today we’re thrilled to share that this show attracted thousands of attendees. Collectors, dealers, and connoisseurs from Beijing to Brussels packed the Antiques Show to purchase from the more than 550 luxury goods and antquie exhibitors.

The Palm Beach Show Group, also the producers of the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show, presented this four day, indoor show. In fact, the Baltimore Summer Antiques Show is the largest indoor antique show in the country.

According to president and CEO of the Palm Beach Show Group, Scott Diament:“This year marks a milestone of record-breaking dealer participation,” said Scott Diament, president and CEO of the Palm Beach Show Group. “We completely sold all of the space in the Baltimore Convention Center.”

Thankfully, Hurricane Irene did not impede the show’s success; “Not only was ‘Irene’ storming, but the buyers were storming too,” said Gus Davis of Camilla Dietz Bergeron. “There was a lot of enthusiasm and the serious buyers really came through and bought. We had a great show.”

Exhibitors reported record sales, high profile customers, and fantastic amounts of museum-quality art sold.

In addition to the art and antiques, guests also attended the antique book fair, and the free public lecture series. These sessions featured Wendy A. Cooper, Lois F. and Henry S. McNeil senior curator of furniture at Winterthur Museum; Robert Mintz, Ph.D., associate curator of Asian art at The Walters Art Museum; and Miller Gaffney, principal of Miller Gaffney Art Advisory. Also presenting lectures were exhibiting dealers, including Jeff Bridgman of Jeff R. Bridgman American Antiques; Janet Drucker of Drucker Antiques; Matthew Baer of The Ivory Tower; and Timothy Stevenson of Carlson & Stevenson Antiques and Art.

Jewelry shows can be a very interesting and entertaining outing for the family. If you are looking to see a huge selection of jewelry and or antique jewelry, antique and jewelry shows are a great place to visit. There are a few different antique shows, jewelry shows, watch shows and antique and jewelry shows we recommend. You can also visit our company (Raymond Lee Jewelers) at most of the shows we will be discussing. D.M.G. Media has a group of shows that are found in Florida, New York City and  Las Vegas.

The Original Miami Beach Antique Show is in Miami, Florida. This year the dates of the show are Feb. 3-7 , 2011. This is one of the largest and in my opinion best antique shows of the year. At this show you will find a huge collection of art, antiques, watches, diamonds and jewelry. This is really one of the best collections of dealers from in and outside of the country.

The Las Vegas Jewelry and Watch show is in Las Vegas June 3-6 2010. The show is in the MGM Grand Las Vegas and opens one day before JCK. This show is not open to the public and only open to the trade. This is a really fun show, lots of cool stuff. A lot of dealers come out to the Vegas show just because its in Vegas. There are many jewelry shows to visit all at the same time.  The New York Jewelry and Watch Show is in New York City in the Metropolitan Pavilion. This is Dmg’s smallest show by far, but really has a great collection of jewelry and antique dealers. Because this show is in Chelsea it has some great walk in traffic. This show is open to the public. It is a must see, especially if you live in the city.

Lastly, The Miami Beach Antique Jewelry and Watch Show is in October. This jewelry show is in the Miami Convention Center minutes from the famous South Beach. This is a much smaller show than Dmg’s other Miami show. It is a good show though. Because this show is smaller, dealers are motivated to sell. This show is mostly jewelry and some watches. The Palm Beach Show is an up and coming company with a great line up of shows and very knowledgable staff. The Palm Beach Show Group has 4 shows throughout the year. They include, The Baltimore Summer Antiques Show, Palm Beach Jewelry, Art and Antique Show, Ft. Lauderdale Art, Antique and Jewelry Show and Dallas International Art, Antique and Jewelry Show.

The Baltimore Summer Antique Show is one of the oldest shows in the country celebrating 30 years. This show is a really nice venue. Lots of interesting one of a kind items to see. The Palm Beach Jewelry, Art and Antique Show is February 18-22 2011. This is a great show with great merchandise. Mostly high end and unusual items at this show. Last year this was one of the busiest shows in South Florida. Ft. Lauderdale Show is brand new and this year is the first time it will be open. Should be a good one. We have not attended the Dallas show as of yet. Look here for more information on upcoming jewelry events. You can visit Raymond Lee Jewelers at most of the events discussed in this blog.
