New Arrivals & the Holidays are Almost Upon Us

The year has flown by at an alarming rate and soon the Christmas season will be upon us.

This time of year also brings about the latest-and-greatest from Tenyo Magic, and November is when they always release their newest items. In fact, they’re due to arrive here any day!

The Tenyo Company of Japan has been selling magic tricks since the late 1940’s. Magicians around the world eagerly await the new Tenyo effects each year, captivated by the clever ideas, well-made props, and well written and illustrated instructions.

Magicians often purchase TWO of every new Tenyo release: one to perform and one to save as a collectible! Like the world famous Beanie Babies, Tenyo will occasionally “retire” certain effects, creating instant “Collectibles”.

For 2014, Tenyo has released the following: MRI, Money Shock, Ghost Card and 4D Printer. Our favorite is MRI.

52 Shades of Red by Shin Lim is another awesome mind-bending effect from the fertile mind of one of magic’s best new thinkers.

Shin lim has performed with this gaff deck in front of thousands of lay audiences around the world. For years he has considered this his secret weapon. He is now sharing it with the magic fraternity. It has to be one of the most usefule gaffed decks in existence. It is so advanced that you will appear to do miracles with your bare hands.

Prepare yourself to harness the greatest gaff deck ever produced!

Bulldogs Do It Again

Betty and I attended the Fresno State Bulldogs game last Friday night with our son Cole.  Cole’s firm purchased tickets for their employes, so we got to go see the undefeated Bulldogs (8-0) defeat Nevada. Tickets are NOT easy to come by and it’s not an activity we ordinarily get to enjoy, so we were glad to be invited.  It’s definitely brisk football-weather here in Fresno, so we bundled up and enjoyed ourselves. Thanks Cole!

Truckload of Illusions Breaks Down Enroute!

One of our customers called the other day to confirm that he was making the trip down to Fresno from San Francisco to bring several sizeable stage illusions for consignment. His surprise phone call this morning was NOT to advise us of his ETA, but to tell us he’d broken down on the Pacheo Pass and required some assistance.

So, I’ve dispatched my son Max and friend in a truck to the rescue. Hopefully, they’ll be back here soon and we can see what kind of surprises lay in store for us, which is my FAVORITE part of the job!


On this Veteran’s Day we are mindful of the ultimate sacrifice many have paid for our country. And most importantly, we are grateful that there are individuals that answer the call to serve in order to protect us.

To those of you who have served, or are currently serving, we are indebted and thankful to you.

Until next time,
