This show was in Wayne, NJ for the last 2 years due to the closing of the school that housed our original show. Unfortunately, we were faced with monumental flooding in the area both years during our show weekend. We had to make a change.
Thanks to Bob Horn, we were able to get back into the building in Clifton where we held our show for many years past. It is a great location and is preferred by our faithful dealers and our customer base.
We hope that everyone will join us in March to welcome back "THE CLIFTON SHOW". We are planning a few additions to the weekend to make the show even more special and enjoyable for everyone! We'll keep you posted.

March is approaching quickly. We are in high gear to make the return of the "Clifton Show" the best ever!

I will post updates as the dates get closer.

Hope to see everyone there!!

Just a reminder that The Clifton Show is only 2 weeks away! All of our dealer spots are full and we're ready to go! This year's show will be great and we are hoping for good weather and a wonderful turnout.

Hope to see you all there!:-)

Now that the location has changed, we shouldn't have to go by boat like the last 2 years... Just hope it doesn't snow this time!
Jeffrey D. Wilson March 08, 2012 09:57PM
Yes, Herschel... No snow or rain this year... Actually great weather all around!!!

Additional vendors:

R.Horn Minerals
Bryan Davis Minerals
Schulz Minerals
...Plus a several more. We have a total of 24 dealers this year. This will be a nice show with some exciting new dealers and lots of new stuff!!

See you all in Clifton!!!
Hershel Friedman March 09, 2012 04:48AM
Yeah, high of 57 for Sunday. I don't think we have to worry about snow this year. Sure glad they changed the location though, otherwise we would have had epic flooding again this weekend. All you folks in Wayne should be thankful for the change...

The Clifton show was an OVERWHELMING SUCCESS this year!!! Especially on Saturday, we had RECORD attendance! It was the most amazing turnout I have ever seen at ANY mineral show. I was blown away by the public response. Our dealers were AWESOME this year and it showed. I am so pumped to start planning for next year's show:)-D

THANK YOU for everyone who attended and made our 23rd Clifton Show a success.
