That's why people are willing to pay $30+ dollars for a few pieces of paper, or molded plastic (for example). It's the secret they're purchasing, and what they really want. Sure, effects that involve a lovely piece of apparatus is a nice thing indeed, but never do I hear, "Hey, that's a cute plastic box in the showcase. How much? $50? I'll take it!" It's always after they see the effect, unless they're already familiar with it, do they even consider spending that kind of money for it. That's also why most (if not all) magic shops don't offer refunds. We'd have people buying and returning books or manuscripts constantly. I think if I ever get into manufacturing my own effects, I'm only going to sell those that involve difficult to reproduce (for the average person) props, so that way if the purchaser decides to sell it, he has no choice but to sacrifice his/her ability to continue to perform it. They may know the secret involved, but oh well. We all know many things that we'll never utilize. Magically, Jack [/quote]
