As Christmas is fast approaching - yes, just 7 weeks to go now - I think it's time to think about interesting gifts. I've already posted a blog about my Magic Workshops, so here are a few unusual pressies that are really easy but very visual tricks ...
If you're looking for some magical christmas gifts, then I just may be able to help you.
We currently have some appearing candles in stock and here is a video showing one. They basically appear from nowhere and you can light them.
Also in stock, we have the magic colouring book which turns blank pages into black and white pictures and then into colour.
Most of my magic and illusions are on my YouTube channel which you can subscribe to on David Pibworth Productions. If you watch me doing something that takes your fancy then just contact me, and if you're local, come and pick it up from Olney and I'll show you exactly how to do it.
"There's even one on there where I appear to cut off my arm so worth a look."
One of the most curious but best-selling things that we stock over the Christmas period is fortune telling fish. Do you remember them? They used to come in crackers but don't seem to now.
While they are by no means magic, they are fun and children love them, and we import them by the hundreds for Christmas, so if you do want any, then give me a shout.
"Believe it or not they are only £2.50 for 24 of them."
I'm not in panto this year. I'm taking a break to spend the time with my daughter at Christmas rather than being away for 4 or 5 weeks as I usually am.
I may find a market or outlet to promote our goods, so keep an eye out, call me on 01234 241357 or add me on facebook where I let people know what I'm up to.
