Antique aficionados, lend us your ears: The Original Miami Beach Antique show is upon us.

Touted as the world's largest indoor antique show, the notable show takes place Jan. 30 to Feb. 3, 2014 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Now in its 53rd year, U.S. Antique Shows showcases 1,000 established dealers from across the globe, featuring Renaissance to Art Deco era collections such as fine art, American and European silver, antique jewelry, 17th-19th century furniture and more.

U.S. Antique Shows is also a proponent of continuing antique jewelry education and will premiere The Original Miami Beach Antique Jewelry Series prior to the start of the show on Jan. 30. The jewelry conference, Jan. 28 to 29, will include educational sessions from notable jewelry experts as well as a complementary tour of the David Webb Exhibit at the Norton Museum of Art and the Vizcaya Museum & Gardens.

There's a feel-good factor, too. In order to continue with the show’s ongoing philanthropic community efforts, this year’s charity raffle will benefit Autism Speaks. The non-profit organization is the world leader in funding research and increasing awareness of the causes, prevention and treatments for autism, along with advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. Raffle tickets will be available to win prizes — think Rolex watches, Miami Heat, special antique pieces and more!

Show times are Thursday, Jan. 30 to Sunday, Feb. 2 from 12-8 p.m. and Monday, Feb. 3 from 12- 6 p.m. Admission is $20 to attend all five days. For more information about the show or to purchase tickets, call 239.732.6642 or visit here.
