Re: Book listing in the Collector's Forum

Nothing has changed as far as I know. Some sellers like to put stupid prices on things just waiting for an uneducated customer to come along. Go check out abebooks.com for crazy prices.

Re: Caution RIP OFFS of Porper's items

IMHO the demand side of the equation (curiosity/mystery/allure of 'secret') seems in place. With knock offs, Chinese or otherwise, the supply curve is elastic. The demand curve for all magic, limited by relatively small numbers of potential buyers in this niche market, tends to be inelastic and as ...
