The Miami Antique Show was extremely amazing and fun in so many ways. Around every corner there were the most beautiful things you’ve ever laid eyes on! From the rows and rows of antique rings, to a booth full of huge fancy colored diamonds, to unbelievably priced art, beautiful Louis Vuitton trunks, and of course the antique furniture. My boss and I were on a mission to find some gorgeous antique engagement rings and some diamond earrings.  We also enjoyed the local flavor like the Art Deco District (we stayed at the Cardozo hotel), great seafood (Joe’s Stone Crab), and partying at the Clevelander.  This trip was dedicated to finding some great jewelry for the store, so unfortunately I didn’t buy anything for myself.  But seeing as it was my first time going to the show, I now know that the trip is totally worth it!  I can’t wait to go again.
