My New Magic Website Is Up And Running!
Welcome to Magic and More ...
POSTED BY DAVID PIBWORTH ON 16/05/2017 @ 8:00AM
Well, it's been a long time coming but it's totally been worth the wait. My new magic website is finally up and running. It's called Magic and More, which means there's more than just magic ...
My new magic website is up and running.
Do have a look at it for me at www.magicandmore.co.uk. Apart from magic tricks, we do various props for theatre, mainly for the stage show of Allo Allo, and curiously - or perhaps not - the Fallen Madonna with the big boobies is one of our top sellers outside of magic.
We even export them to Australia and the USA. We have the canvasses made locally which are an added bonus as I like to deal locally if possible.
"The other prop that sells consistently are cigarettes for the stage."
Although an actor is allowed to smoke on stage under the exemption rules, one does have to get special permission to light up and, to be honest, it's far easier just to use prop ciggies as they're cheaper than real ones and can be used again and again. I suppose we've found what might be called a niche market, albeit a relatively small one.
So I'm looking for niche markets as they're fun and financially viable. I'll be updating the site all the time as we have a lot to get out there. I'll keep you informed on this, and other things I'm involved in so do keep going back to see what we have for everyone.
And I'm truly pleased that on the home page, we managed to find the old video of me doing the Tommy Cooper Bottle routine which was done a good few years ago and we thought was lost.
People love it, I love it and, of course, if you want to buy the Tommy Cooper 'Bottle/Glass ... Glass/Bottle' routine, you know who to contact. Yep, me. Do visit www.magicandmore.co.uk and let me know what you think.
Until next time ...
