Are You Ready?

Can you feel it? Are you ready for the holidays? We're just a few days away from Thanksgiving, and then the official Christmas Season kicks off in high gear! Many of you have already begun your early Christmas gift giving/shopping. The Post Office has already started two package pickups per day to insure the fastest possible delivery of your orders. Everyone here is ready for the big push. The warehouse is packed with inventory, and Mike is putting up new products at his usual lightening speed! Now would be a good time to print your wish list and subtly leave it in places for loved ones to "accidentally" find it. Hint, hint.

My very first magic set (which I still have to this day, complete in perfect condition)

In my young years, one Christmas, I received a Martian Magic Set. This was the only gift that I really cared about. I studied it and perfected all its tricks and showed every single relative, neighbor, or anyone else I could get to watch. We carry many magic sets here at Hocus Pocus, but one in particular that stands out is the Extreme Magic Set from Fantasma.

Priced at $59.95, we believe this to be the best magic set value we have to offer. Here's our Christmas offer: mention the blog when you place your order for an Extreme Magic Set. If you buy one for $59.95, you can get a second one for half off -- $29.95! Not only is this a great Christmas gift and oversized stocking stuffer, it's the perfect gift for anyone, young or old, any time of year.

Recently acquired a fairly large sized private collection which included several very rare Jack Hughes items. Mike listed some of them on the site yesterday, and all of them sold in less than 24 hours. One of the rarest items listed today is the Jack Hughes Snake Basket. Much sought-after but rarely offered, this one is complete with all the parts, accessories and instructions. Although I've had these in the past, this is the second one I've ever had that was complete. Whether you're a performing magician or a collector, you will cherish this very rare and unique collectible. Some lucky someone will grab this very soon. Do yourself a favor and check it out HERE while it's still visible online. We're always looking for quality used magic to purchase or to trade. If you have something you are interested in selling or trading, please contact me at or call me toll-free 800-407-4040.

Exciting News

Spoke to Bob Kohler early in the week, and two brand new products will be available within the next 7-10 days, and they are DOOZIES! Bob has asked me not to release the names of the products yet, but I can tell you that one in particular has been in the works for at least 2 years! It's a signature routine from a very well-known comedy magician that I'm sure most of you have seen. Bob was generous enough to share one of the early prototypes with us last year, and we've been chomping at the bit for its release ever since! The wait is almost over, and I'm sure that you will be as excited about them as we are! Both items should appear on our web site in the upcoming days and will be available for shipping in plenty of time for the holidays, so stay tuned.

School's Out

Today is the last day of school before the Thanksgiving break for my youngest son, Max, and my oldest son, Cole. Cole will be coming home early next week to celebrate Thanksgiving with us. Last weekend, we spent Saturday and Sunday decorating the entire inside of our home for Christmas, and this week, Cole, Max, and my future son in-law, Jonathan, will be setting up all the outside decorations. It's been like a high-tech, highly engineered project. Between Max and Cole, they continue to draw out plans as to where everything will go. I'll post photos when all is completed.

So until next time,
