On the Road to Allakazam


Who’d have ever thought that when I was five years-old watching the TV show “The Magic Land of Allakazam” that I would ever imagine calling the stars of the show my friends? I’m excited because tomorrow morning, Betty and I will be heading south to spend the day with Mark and Nani Wilson. While we’re there, their son, Greg, will give us a guided tour of the new upstairs museum he created filling it with memorabilia of his parents’ long career in magic. He’s also completely remodeled their massive warehouse, and I can’t wait to see what he’s done. While we’re there, we’ll also be finalizing the special 50th Anniversary Allakazam product we’ll be offering exclusively here at Hocus Pocus. I have the finished sample that I’ll be bringing with me to show the Wilsons and we’ll send an email out within the week with a special promotional offer for it. If you’re an online member, you’ll get advanced notification before anyone else, so stay tuned. I’m very excited about this new project as I’m sure many of you will be as well. Of course, I’ll be taking photos for next week’s blog along with a full report.

A big thanks to all of you who participated in our Private Estate/Collectible event. Of the 229 items posted, over 85% sold in less than 5 days! We’re actively preparing for the next list, which I have all good intent of sending out before the end of this month. This will be the third list sent and there will be even more great items that are hard to find, in some cases. Remember to get first dibs you must be an online member to receive your advanced notification.


As you may have noticed, we now have Paul Harris’ Little Man available on our site for pre-order. I spent last week with the distributors and got the inside information on this product. Trust me when I tell you, this might just be the best thing Paul has ever released! A lump of clay that becomes alive could very well be the closest thing to real magic you’ve ever seen. Judging by the many pre-orders we’ve already taken, many of you agree. Imagine how your spectators will react! As a bonus to all who pre-order, we’re offering a bonus $100.00 gift package. For more information, check it out HERE!

The holidays are here! In less than 2 weeks, we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving, and Christmas will be here before you know it. I’ve created a special category called “Holiday Magic Tricks.” There, you’ll find a great selection of specially selected items that are perfect for your holiday shows. I’m particularly excited about the new Razamatazz Magic holiday effects as they really know what works well for kid shows. The artwork and graphics and quality of products is more than impressive and a great value. We’re very honored to be their exclusive dealer.

Speaking of the holidays, many of you have already started planning ahead and have kept us extremely busy. We’re gearing up and making sure that our inventory levels can accommodate the upcoming holiday rush.  Anything we can do to expedite your orders or holiday gift buying, just let us know.

So it’s on to Allakazam we go. See you next week.

Until next time,
