West Palm Beach may be best known for its white sand beaches, world class restaurants and gorgeous luxury real estate, but residents know this city of palm trees and sunshine is also home to some fabulous antiquing opportunities.
The West Palm Beach Antiques Festival, running July 1-3, is the premier destination for anyone looking for antiques, collectibles and decorative accessories like jewelry, pottery, glass, furniture, china, porcelain, paintings and much, much more.
For years now the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival has been a staple of the city’s culture events. It is a show where everyone – dealers, artists, collectors, browsers – are truly in it together, talking and sharing stories and embracing a shared sense of community.
You’ll get the chance to meet the merchants as they’re setting up before noon on Friday, when you can find premier items at negotiable prices. Best of all, the 3-day Early Buyer passes are available for $25, while each 1-day pass goes for $10. Not only do you get to jump on deals early, but you can save money while you do it. Early Buyers
Want to know a secret? If you’re a buyer who would like to get an early glimpse at the incredible array of antiques and artistic accessories on offer at the festival, there’s a way to see everything before the crowds arrive. It’s called the Early Buyer VIP 3-Day Pass.
Dozens of local artists and dealers join the Antiques Festival every month. This July, Bob LeBlanc, an art dealer specializing in vintage oil paintings, gets the spotlight. Selling from his own store since 1975, LeBlanc’s collection contains works of the “highwaymen” variety, as well as vintage hand colored prints of Florida, Harris, Barnhill and more.
