Topic: Where to buy Londono mouth coils
Message: Posted by: dearwiseone (Oct 30, 2014 10:46AM)
D. Robbins stopped carrying the Londono 50ft mouth coils. Anyone know where else you can buy these wholesale?

Thanks!

They supplied me with the India ones and, I really like them!
Message: Posted by: dearwiseone (Oct 31, 2014 09:44AM)
Yeah, they're the ones who got me hooked on the Londono ones. The India ones aren't terrible, but I still prefer the Londono ones. I think the colors were more vibrant and the paper was a little better quality. The price was very close to the India ones.

I can't find Londono 50' coils anywhere anymore. They must not make them anymore. D.Robbins still stocks the 25'.

Maybe we can talk about mouth coils some more.

I tried the Andy Amyx coils. Pro's vibrant colors, because they are plastic they hold up better in the mouth. cons--only 25'

I'm just about to try the 50' ones from India, but I can see what you mean about the colors not being as bright.

Anyone else have some recommendations?

I just ordered Londono ones on e-bay. I also find Cresey's to be very well made, especially the money mouth coils.

Andy Amyx makes his in a 50 foot length, and FAB Magic carries the Londono Coils in 50 ft also. The India ones from Robbins are good but very large. About half again as big as Cressey's. I have used all of them, and it depends how comfortable you are with palming something.
I hope that helps.

Very helpful Jef, thanks.

On a side note, is FAB Magic affiliated with Abbott's in any way?
Message: Posted by: Jef Eaton (Jan 22, 2015 02:57PM)
Oh no, FAB is really trying to bring back the "Magic Capitol of the World" to Colon but he has ticked off a pile of people trying to do so.
I like Rick, he is a nice guy.
I wouldn't ask Abbott's what they think of him though. LOL

Interesting, FAB magic features the biography of Percy Abbott on the front page of their web site!
Message: Posted by: dearwiseone (Jan 23, 2015 02:18PM)
Jeff,
Where did you see the Londono coils? I searched for "londono" and "mouth coil" on their website and nothing came up.

Thanks much!

I'd call Rick. That might be easier.
In regards to Percy Abbott on the site, Percy's daughter was associated with Rick from the start. "F" for Fisher, "A" for Abbott, and I don't know what the "B" stand for.
I heard once it was for Blackstone but I don't know...I'll have to ask Rick about it.

Hi thanks Jef! We carry all of the Londono mouth coils - they are very good and yep made in the good ole USA! We have them listed under our paper category

Message: Posted by: Ken Northridge (Jan 24, 2015 04:14AM)
So...Rick, what does the B stand for?
Message: Posted by: Rick Fisher (Jan 27, 2015 07:30AM)
Well no the B does not stand for Blackstone - yes, the Abbott children have been my business partner since our inception 12 years ago. With their help we wrote a book on the life of Percy Abbott: Magical Years - now in its 4th printing...

Thanks Rick, I understand now. A visit to Colon, Michigan is on my bucket list!

Hi Ken..hope to see you! let us know when you are coming and will give the royal tour :)

$14 isn't wholesale, that's pretty expensive! I'm looking for wholesale quantity and pricing. Anyone have any other source for wholesale Londono coils?

Wholesale pricing is meant for 'dealers' not individuals -

I don't agree with that. Neither do the many wholesalers who sell to me! I'm not a dealer but I buy most of my magic in wholesale quantities.

The term wholesale refers to quantity, not intent. Wholesalers don't care if my intent is to use the item for myself or resell it, they just want me to meet their minimum selling amounts. When I buy mouth coils, I buy 500 at a time. That's wholesale!

Of course they don't disagree - wholesalers will sell to anyone - loyalty to dealers is non existent -- retail license or not..its unfortunate - there was a time when you had to go to a dealer to purchase -

Actually, when it comes to use of the term pertaining to merchandise, it does refer to the the intent to be resold.

Every wholesale I have purchased from does ensure I have a retail lisence prior to setting up my account. There is no way for them to ensure that I retail every item I purchase, only that I meet there minimum purchase requirements.

Not always, it depends on the wholesaler. Here in Oregon, for example, we don't have "retail licenses." Wholesale for many online retailers actually refers to quantity, not intent to be resold. Of course, I only deal with about 4 wholesalers online, so this is just my experience with magic and novelty dealers. In other businesses it might be different.

Hope that helps!

For years I used to buy mouth coils retail. Then I went to the source (Dave Cresey) and he sold them to me wholesale. Now I get them from Robbins wholesale. I use a LOT of them. I don't have a license.

FYI D. Robbins just informed me that they haven't received an order from Londono in over a year and suspects they are out of business. Cressey and Londono out of business. Wow.

Furthermore, I decided I don't like the Amyz coils. The plastic actually cut my mouth.

I think that John Reid is still running Cresey.com and is still selling some stock. He seemed to indicate that their stock is dwindling, and they might not make more (of certain products), in a recent post on Facebook.

Londono, is he even still alive. Londono was use to sell only through Tannen's, I speaking back in the 1970's and 1980's. He had many magic creations he sold through them.

Just checked and Tannen's does not list any of the Londono products on their website.

Yes, perhaps I jumped the gun. Cressey is not out of business but will not be making anymore multi-color which I would imagine is a large percentage of the business.

John Reid owns "Tricky Business" here on Long Island. He is a super great guy. It is true, he is selling off his stock. His store is only open 2 days a week now. It is a shame, but I guess that is what happens when people rather shop on line.

Londono is NOT out of business! We buy from them regularly - all of their products are top notch - mouth coils are the best - and you cannot beat the price!
Message: Posted by: Ken Northridge (Dec 2, 2015 09:19AM)
Any updates on this product? I bought some Londono mouth coils from fabmagic but they were Londondo 'style' mouth coils. There weren't bad but don't pack as flat as the original Londono.

Just an update on the availability of Cresey coils, as of Spring 2016.

John Reid (who owns Cresey Magic) said in a recent Facebook post, on the Cresey Products page, that they still have lots of inventory of Cresey products, including mouth coils. They just stopped making new ones. Click the link to his Facebook page, and read his April 7/2016 post.

And as far as I know, he's not selling them wholesale.

I stocked up on a dozen packs of jumbo coils last year, paying retail price.

Thanks Donald.

Brad Toulouse graciously posted a 3 part tutorial on SME Talk Magic about making your own mouth coils. I took the challenge and its been working well. However, it is time consuming and I'd rather just buy the old Londono coils. Lonondo coils were smaller...and more economical, which makes a difference when you do a lot of shows.

Thanks for the response, Ken.

My post wasn't really meant to be directed at you specifically, so I apologize if I came across that way.

I was just trying to offer information for everyone, about the Cresey Mouth Coils product line.

Hi every1,

whats the difference about Londono ones? don't know this one... only used Cresey and Bazar de Magia.

Im looking for the 50' ones, until now the bazar magia are the ones I used - for me a little big... are the Londono ones smaller, compact?

Thanks!

But forget about it. This thread is one and a half years old and no one has told where I can get them.

These are Londono 'style' mouth coils, not authentic Londono coils. I tried them and didn't think they were as good as Londono.
