My busy Summer of performing has begun to wind down, so I will be able to spend more time at Don's Magic & Books getting items photographed and listed. I just finished about 45 shows at Fairs, City Festivals, Camps and Corporate events.
Then, last Monday, while playing in my disc golf league, I finally hit an ACE!
225 feet! My disc hit the ground about 15 feet in front of the basket, skipped up and went directly in!
Here's my challenge: If any of you play disc golf, and meet me at a convention, let's go play a round. If you win, I'll give you a one-time EXCELLENT discount on your next purchase; I'll make it worthwhile for you. If I win, you have to shake my hand at the end of the round. That's all. Why would I do that? Because I want to know my customers for more than how many orders you've made. I want to get to know you, and playing disc golf is always a fun way to spend time with people.
Thank you to everyone that responded to my email question about NEW vs. USED magic books. I learned that some magicians like magic books regardless of condition (writing, highlighting, etc), some want immaculate books (I have some, but my overall goal is to keep used magic books circulating), and some of you don't have a preference.
All I ask is that when you see something on my site, read the description, and look at all of the photos so that you know exactly what you're buying. My goal has never been to deceive you into buying something you don't want, or to trick you into buying used copies when you think they are new. That's not who I am. I want you to be satisfied, and come back again. I want you, as my valued customer, to know exactly what you are getting, and that's why 99% of the time I don't even use standard pictures of the books, but instead take my own photos of the ACTUAL book you are purchasing, flaws and all.
I also received some nice feedback from overseas subscribers. Please know that if I could, I would be sending these books all around the world. However, I am one person, that prints your order, fills it, wraps and packages it, and pays for postage. And please know that I take no offense at all if you are able to purchase from other magic dealers that are able to give you free or discounted
international shipping. Please support them, because in the end, it makes the magic community stronger and more sustainable.
It has been a whirlwind Summer, and I am glad it is winding down a little. I am not a good multitasker, so performing around Minnesota, while trying to keep up on listing and selling books, has been overwhelming. Now, I can dedicate the needed time to get some of the 3000 remaining books I have listed for you.
Around October 1st, I will be having another "Plus 1" sale. Every $20.00 purchase qualifies you for one random FREE BOOK or BOOKLET that I'll add to your order. Then, for every $20.00 more that you spend, I'll throw in ANOTHER FREE BOOK or BOOKLET. Basically, a $100 purchase will get you 5 free books or booklets! A $200 purchase will get you 10 free books or booklets!
Stay tuned….because I'm starting to gather the titles for the sale. (Sorry, but no special title requests)
Stay safe everyone!
