We are helping with a liquidation sale. There's literally tons of material, including hundreds of slabs, fossils, barrels of rough rock, and equipment.

Everything is priced to sell quickly, cash or checks from SDMG members only, bring your own buckets. No Early Birds.

My 5 year old son is really looking forward to this, he just finished his first batch of stones in the rock tumbler that we gave him for X-mas and is now looking for rough stones everywhere. We'll be down on the 3rd :D

Went today and it was amazing, came back with a huge pile of rocks for almost nothing. My son sat down in a pile of small chalcedony and quartz pieces for almost an hour picking out his favorites, he could barely contain himself :)

Most of the haul and a happy jr rockhound

Yep, I picked up a bunch of cabbing stuff for when my grandchildren or other kids come over. Next week is going to be even cheaper they say. I may have to go back for more!

Too far away for me to come, but really good to see people enjoying their hobby!
