Not Such Sensational Shopping

The Miami Antique and Estate Jewelry Show,
It is better in theory than in reality.
Worse than standing on your feet nonstop from 11:00am to 8:00pm
Prices are high, really high
As if the financial meltdown had never happened
As if there hasn't been revolution in the streets of Cairo
As if we are all living in the pre 2009 go-go days
As if everyone has a Chinese billionaire client in their back pocket.

Not that I haven't seen some beautiful things, I have
Exquisitely beautiful things
But I'm thrifty so that I can bring the best prices to my clients
I will buy a little here and a little there but that's all.

Miami is lovely and warm...I wish that I could sit on the beach!
