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.

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!

...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!!!

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.
