Review of Magic Shop

I am not one of the many performers that buys the latest and greatest every time they come out. As a matter of fact, I can think only of four items that I have purchased in the last two years that fit into that category and I use them all in my repertoire.

I bring that up in this review because Wolfgang Wollet (the owner of carries a lot of older items - books, DVDs, effects, etc. as well as the newer items. This stems naturally from buying the inventory of shops that have been in business for a long time and which have gone out of business for whatever reason.

Though this is not a brick and mortar shop and I do have my shops to which I am loyal, I have one more to add to that short list and it is

The site is quite large and there are many, many items available. Just the other day I was blown away by the listing of books that were on the site - over 1,200 titles and that was not the entirety of his stock!

One great feature of the site is that it shows you whether an item is in stock or not, how many of each item are in stock and for certain items, whether it is a special order item. For special order items, there is a notice next to those products also telling you the approximate shipping turnaround (usually no more than 3 or 4 days). As with any dealer, if you do not see an item listed, he may actually have it or be able to get it, so you can call or e-mail to find out.

Since this shop is still relatively new at the time of this writing, I am sure many magicians have not heard of it yet. I have placed two orders so far (one DVD set to complete a collection, and two books) and I have to say the customer service is top notch! I had a few questions regarding the items and Wolfgang responded in less than ten hours and the prices for most of the items as far as I can tell are about as good as you are going to find.

The turnaround for shipping is very prompt and both orders got to me, half way across the country, the day after it was shipped via basic shipping. Yes I realize that once the product leaves the business, as with any business, it is out of their control, but still...

I know I will be going back to this dealer for future items because, to sum it up, the product selections are fantastic, the prices are great, the customer service is second-to-none and I am very happy thus far. Highly recommended!
