Antiquing In Palm Beach,Florida

Hi Folks !

     I wanted to describe my antiquing experience in Palm Beach, Florida. My daughter, a Florida native, recommended we visit Palm Beach, or more precisely, West Palm Beach for a unique antique-hunting experience. West Palm Beach is located on the east coast of Florida, just off of Interstate 95.
Historic Antique Row is located along South Dixie Highway, from Southern Blvd. to Belvedere Rd. There are quite a few shops, 40 or 50 according to the brochures.
I have to tell you, this is the place to come if you have a bankroll of money to spend, or if you just want to see how the wealthy shop for antiques. There were some shops that were moderately priced, with interesting items to buy, but many of these shops were a bit pricey (like a corner chair for $1,500 at CEDRIC DUPONT ANTIQUES).  This place is high end, but is worth visiting........you actually have to be buzzed in, and then you are met by a really nice old gentleman who will show you around.  Nice stuff if you can afford it.

 After visiting about 10 shops (there are at least 20 more in this vicinity), we broke for dinner at the CITY DINER, a nice relatively inexpensive place to eat.
4 or 5 more shops, and we were ready to go back to our hotel. Here are a couple of pictures I took while in town.
At Cedric Dupont Antiques
D & G ANTIQUES had a Campaign Desk for $1,950 and a Vintage Crystal Chandelier for $3,800.
