Some Like It Hot

Summer arrived this week with a bang — it was 106 degrees on Tuesday and we felt every single one of those degrees around here. It was just so hot and such a change from the 70s that we were enjoying just a couple of weeks ago.  Some like it hot, I prefer it to be a little cooler. UNLESS, I’m talking about the HOT new line from Phantom Magic that just arrived this week…

Not So Slomotion

Every now and then a new product comes along that is so good, so unique, so advanced and just SO EXCITING. This week we took delivery of two items that fit this bill. I cannot tell you how excited I am about our new relationship with Joe Litvinchuk and Phantom Magic.  Hocus Pocus is the new exclusive distributor for Phantom Magic and this week Joe delivered the first two items.  WOW!! I can’t say enough about Slomotion and The Omega Exchange. Seriously, I’ve been playing with them all week and am still overwhelmed with how clever the workings are and how the Omega Exchange is so finely crafted. In the first 24 hours, we almost sold out of our entire inventory. Joe scrambled and sent us additional stock so that our inventory position wasn’t compromised. The response has been HUGE for these items. Take a look at the videos below then click here to read more…Seeing is believing.

Andrew Mayne

This Monday, Andrew Mayne is lecturing at Hocus Pocus in Fresno. Andrew is one of the most CREATIVE MINDS IN MAGIC today and we are honored that he is lecturing here. We haven’t had a lecture since last November, but there was no way I was going to pass on the opportunity to host Andrew Mayne. I wish you could all be here because this is not to be missed!

 Magic Live

We haven’t been there in awhile, but Hocus Pocus is back! I’m looking forward to having a booth a Magic Live in Las Vegas (August 14-17). We’re already starting to pack up our product and, really, the hardest part is editing out – unfortunately, I can’t bring everything, but what I am bringing is pretty exciting. Stop by the booth to see demonstrations and just to visit. I would love to meet you!

Not So Private Estate

It would appear that more and more people are hearing about our Private Estate selection at Hocus Pocus. We have had two more estate acquisitions in the last two weeks as well as individual items arrive every day from around the world. I now know that we will never finish putting Private Estate items on the website because the arrival of new antique, vintage and collectible product will never end. What started out as a side business now requires a major chunk of my day, every day. It’s an amazing business and one that I thoroughly enjoy.

I would just like to take a moment and THANK all of you for all YOUR SUPPORT of Hocus Pocus. There are many businesses out there that you can patronize and we appreciate you letting us service your magic needs. It is because of people like you, our Hocus Pocus friends and customers, that we get to be in a profession that we love. THANK YOU!

Until next time,
