***Note to interested dealers for the 2013 shows:***
Our "Little Show" has grown alot since we first began 2 years ago. The fall 2012 show was our biggest ever, however, we did experience some dealer "overcrowding" issues on Saturday. This, in turn, also depleted our available customer parking and caused us to place dealers in areas not condusive to foot traffic. The club has discussed the situation and we have agreed that we will be limiting our show to 32 outdoor dealers, plus 4 UV dealers in the barn, which will allow everyone a spot in the horseshoe and courtyard with no overflow.
Pre-Registration REQUIRED for the Fall Show, and will begin on SEPTEMBER 1st!!

Set-up time is still 7:00am. Remember, Bring your own tables (chairs and tent if desired). We do not provide tables for setting up. Our set-up fee of $10 per table per day is still in effect.
As the Glenburn looms in the background, dealers make their final preparations to their booths just before the show opens to the public.
Eager customers swarm the tables as the show gets underway.
Al doing his thing as customers check out the selection.
A steady stream of shoppers made this show a great success!!!
Thanks to all who help out, who set up as dealers, and who stop by just to shop, to help make our show a success.
THANKS to the Borough of Riverdale, Mayor Bill Budesheim, June Carelli & Carolyn Masone from the Riverdale Land Trust and for providing us an exceptional venue for our event!
