I will refrain from mentioning the name of the business since the name has been appropriated (possibly unknowingly) by a member of the Café and I wouldn't want to embarrass him. Especially since posts have been made on the ethics form. ;) In any case I had a trick that I decided I would sell to the general public and make my fortune. At the time there was a periodical called The Magic Magazine, not to be confused with MAGIC. It was sold on the newsstands to regular folk and had a paid circulation numbering into the tens of thousands. It may have been more I forget. In any case the advertisement cost a bundle compared to the regular magic magazines. What happened? I sold two. I tell this story to point out how small the magic fraternity actually is. Since Cupmagic has not put much in his profile, an ever increasing annoyance to me, I am not sure which country we are talking about. However if I can make the assumption that teens are basically the same worldwide, don't fret. This is just a fad and fads tend to fade rapidly. There will be some who stay and those will become the magicians in the future. The rest will quickly forget the secrets they knew as those also tend to fade. In the bigger context, most of your audience will not become jaded by the magic shop owner’s penchant to sell, sell, sell. Magic has survived for almost as long as humans have walked the Earth, one store owner will not make a bit of difference in the end. Frank Tougas [/quote]
