Let the Move Begin

You never realize how much stuff you have until you move. Both Mike and I are in the unenviable position of looking at the things we've acquired over the years and wondering where it's all going to go -- Mike in his new house, and us in our new building. Although the building itself is massive, there is still the task of packing, organizing, sorting, and moving it all into its new home. We're about a month and a half away from the final move, but we'll be moving all the way up until then, little by little. The great news is that the phone numbers and email addresses will remain unchanged, since we're only moving a few blocks away, within the same zip and area code. We're so excited to move into our new home, and we'll be sure to keep you updated every step of the way. We want the new Hocus Pocus to be the best it can be, thanks to you, our loyal Hocus Pocus customers.

You can help us move! That's right; rather than moving as much as we can, we're offering it for sale! Simply click the banner below and it will take you to a special page we've created just for you. This event goes on until Tuesday, February 28th, so don't delay:

Last week, we mentioned the fine products from mentalist Andrew Gerard. There are now 4 new products and more to come from Andrew. There's also a new section of the web site devoted specifically to Gerard's products entitled, "Andrew Gerard Prod." Simply click on it and you will have full access to his complete line! Highly respected amongst the professionals in the field, he has chosen to release his pet secrets exclusively through Hocus Pocus to the magic fraternity! There's been a huge buzz on all the chat boards, and Andrew's products are flying off the shelves!

Along with packing this week, we have received a gluttony of new products, all of which appear every day on our site! However, at home I'm happy to say that everything is finished with the exception of some tile work in our kitchen. We finally began unpacking the boxes at home and returned things to the shelves, cabinets, and refrigerator! Hopefully, within the next 24-48 hours, our family life will be back to normal again. It's been a long 4 1/2 months... I agree with Betty though; it was worth it. The house looks like a completely new home, and I couldn't be happier with the final results.

It's been great seeing friends come in from the World Magic Seminar this week. Amongst those, Gerardo Parra will be visiting us next week all the way from Chile! He comes to see us at least once every year, and we look forward to his visits! He has a ton of energy and is always smiling and joking. He's like a kid in a candy store when he comes here. Wait until he sees our new location!

Well, it's back to work; the phones are ringing off the hook, and my email is ringing every minute. Until next time,
