Re: Schoolcraft coins, Card College set, and Eric Jones DVD

I have been waiting for over a year for a resolution to an order I placed with Circle City Magic in June of 2009. The item was out of stock, but when I placed the order I got the usual confirmation notice in my email saying the order had been processed. It didn't include any notation that the item w...

Re: Central Illinois Magic Get-Together

If you haven't committed to attending this convention yet, you have just a couple more days to decide. And the NOAA weather report for Saturday, April 25, is mostly sunny, high in the lower 80s. Very nice.

Re: Rings 'N' Thing II going belly up

So, Greg, what you are saying is that it is perfectly acceptable to trash reputable magic businesses all over forums if you need to suck up to a crook to complete a deal! No, sir.

The princesswood cups were a disgusting endeavor, and basically a self-proclaimed ripoff of Brett's cups. What made it worse were the people on the cafe, seeing 2 sets of cups that were virtually identical, professing that there was no resemblance. That really told you who was who and where they st...
