What A Week It’s Been

What a week it’s been!

We have been so busy jumping from one project or promotion to another and, it was all so much FUN!

My good friend, Tim Mannix, arrived from L.A. at the beginning of the week to help re-set the showroom with our newest Private Estate acquisitions and to prepare to be one-half of the Hocus Pocus “tag-team magicians” for our “Magic Marathon” on a local television station’s morning show. On April 1, April Fool’s Day, we arrived at 4am for set up and then performed for five hours beginning at 5am. Tim and I took turns performing live for the broadcast. We did everything from close-up card effects to producing doves. You can see Devil’s Pitcher performed and then watch the newscaster, Clayton, disappear in a magic cabinet by following this link, http://www.kmph-kfre.com/ , click on “Great Day”, then click on “Catch Clayton”. Watch the videos:  “Clayton’s Mind Blowing Magic” and “Clayton Disappears.” Also, check out the video below that Tim and I did together.

On top of our TV performance, we were running our April Fools Event, which as everyone knows was anything but a joke. We started pulling merchandise to fill orders at 4am and did not stop until 3:30 in the afternoon. I think we set a record for the number of packages shipped in one day. We’re just not young enough for this anymore! Where are the kids when you need them…I know, I know, school takes precedence…

This week I want to use the blog to announce the teaming up of Hocus Pocus and Jay Leslie as the Miracle Magic Company. Miracle Magic’s focus will be on designing and producing a limited edition, luxury line of fine magic products.  All items in the line will be produced one time and one time only; when they are sold out, no more will be produced. If you are a collector or performer of fine magic then you will want to get in on this. I previewed the first item, The Golden Disk of Amun-Re, 3D, last month at our Big Event. The time and high-quality workmanship put into this item is unbelievable.  Follow this link for more on Amun-Re, http://www.hocus-pocus.com/magicshop/?product=12826

This coming week, on Monday, April 5, George Schindler will be lecturing here at Hocus Pocus. We’re expecting a full-house for this outstanding magician, showman, and teacher.  I can’t wait to finally meet him in person! Follow this link for more information about George and reservations for the event.

And, finally, I want to acknowledge our Fans on Facebook. We have only had our Fanpage for a few weeks and there are almost 400 of you. Thank you!

It’s now Friday and we’re winding down for the Easter weekend. Betty and I, along with our kids, will spend Easter Sunday at my mother-in-law’s house with the rest of the family and celebrate the day with a traditional Armenian Easter meal. My mouth is salivating just thinking about the great food! But, don’t think we’ll be just sitting around and relaxing because it is time for our annual game of Easter Egg Wars, a tradition in Betty’s family for generations. You probably don’t need or want to know all the details of Egg Wars, but in the end we have the world’s greatest egg salad made by my mother-in-law. I’m really looking forward to Sunday with the family and all the love and enjoyment that brings. I wish you a wonderful weekend with your loved ones, also.

Whether it’s Easter or Passover to you, enjoy your weekend with your family. I will.

Until next time,
