Ho Ho Ho! It’s Almost Christmas

We’ve really busy. In fact, busier than we’ve been in a long time and I am very pleased about that! We’ve had a record number of packages go out this week, which is VERY gratifying to me. We thank you for your orders.

We’re definitely into the Christmas spirit as today is the Hocus Pocus Christmas party.

We have a special lunch delivered from A.J.’s, our favorite Armenian restaurant in town. The food is truly great and we do a gift exchange, which is always fun to see what people get each other.

A great lunch by A.J.'s for our Christmas Party!

Great Tricks For Christmas Or Any Time!

Although I mentioned several of these effects on a previous blog, I cannot resist but to mention them again as they are so very good.

You’ve got to check out The Final Cut by Scott Alexander & Bob Kohler, the finest Signed Bill In Lemon effect released to date, and 52 Shades of Red, , multiple effects with a card deck that looks like real magic.

The one flying off the shelves at the moment, and that will be difficult to get once the minimal stock we have on hand is exhausted, is Pocket Money by Wayne Dobson.  Check out the video below.

Another Working Magician Visits 

We had a visitor in the shop yesterday, San Luis Obispo magician Rich Ferguson, who was in town performing at one of the casinos for a holiday party.  Rich is a very accomplished and award-winning entertainer, who’s opened for Leno and Jimmy Kimmel, appeared on Ellen as well as countless corporate gigs.

Rich Ferguson stopped in to pay a first-time visit.

Rich had never been into the shop and was very impressed with our showroom and collection of all things magic. I suspect he’ll be back again soon. It was good meeting you Rich. Come back any time!

If ever you’re in our area, please stop in and spend some time with us. We welcome all visiting magicians.

Until next time,

Paul
