NOTICE: I've started indexing and pricing this stuff. Finally. I expect to post the list before the end of February (this year.) Please check back, or send me an email to get on the notification list.

If you've found this place, congratulations. It's not actually ready to be published. But, since you're already here, you may as well take a look at this list.

This list represents an impressive number of boxes of magic tricks and books I recently purchased. They largely made up the inventory of two closed magic shops. Once I cull out the things I intend to keep, I'll publish an updated list with prices. Consider it an Internet version of a local magic club's "flea market".

Until then, feel free to email me with your wishlist and we'll work something out.
