Effective Today(Monday March 30th,2009) Inner Planetary Products Will Be Closing Down For Most(Possibly ALL) Of 2009.

Due To My Physical Disability, I Have 2 Surgeries That Will Be Conducted This Year(2009).
With The Hospital Time,Recovery Time,And Preperation For Further Surgeries in 2010,I will Have Very Little Time To Donate To The Friends And Family Of IPP.

I Would Like To Say Thank You To All Of You Who Helped Make IPP One of The Greatest Times In My Life.It Has Been A Joy,Privlidge,And Honor To Work With All Of You.

I Will Still Spend Time On Cloudy Nights,And Look Forward To Staying In Touch With All Of The Wonderful Members Of Cloudy Nights I Have Been Blessed To Meet And Get To Know.

And,Again,Thank You All,For Helping Make A Dream Come True.

No Todd you don't thank us. We thank you for making our dream come true. It was your affordable prices and top quality products on IPP that made our collecting meteorites a dream come true. It was your honesty and your dedication to be sure your customers satisfaction came first. It was you and IPP that made "Rocks from Space" the success it has become.
NO Todd we thank you, Thank you sir.
We will be waiting to hear very soon that IPP is back.

Your friend and pal,
Dick

IPP so far:

has given away hundreds of meteorites,
have almost given away with very low prices thousands,
has given joy to all of us,
has blessed us all beyond expectations,
I cannot wait until the IPP Grand Reopening.

Good luck Todd. Hope to see you back in business soon!

For those of you who don't know Todd, he is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I started getting interested in Meteorites and he took the time to make sure that I was informed about all the different kinds and answered each and every question I had thoughtfully and quickly. He donated a bunch of meteorites to give to my Fiance's school. He is a world class guy and will be missed while he's away. Hope to see him back soon, better than ever.

Thank You Sincerely For The Extremely Kind Words,Thoughts,And Wishes.

It Has Been An Honor And Pleasure To Watch Each And Every One Of You As Your Passion For Meteorite Collecting Kept Growing.
And,Indeed,An Honor To Help In Each And Any Way Possible.

Meteorite Collecting Is A Passion,And One I Loved And Wanted To Pass On To As Many As Possible.So,Profit Was Never An Issue,Just Enough To Keep The Company Going And Being Able To Offer New And Exciting Specimens.

As Things Stand Now,I WILL Be Back Open Around The Middle Of May.Though As I Continue To Start Having The Fire Burning In My Heart For The Hobby Return,I May Be Back Slightly Sooner.

But In Either Case,My Friends and Family Here At Cloudy Nights Will Be The First To Know.

Again Thank You All,I Am Truly Moved And Greatful To Have Friends And Family Like Yourselves!
