Topic: 580: Gabe Fajuri - Going, Going...Gone!
Message: Posted by: Scott Wells (Oct 13, 2020 03:46PM)
We spend a lifetime of collecting (or accumulating) magic paraphernalia (books, props, posters, gimmicks, etc.) but in the end…where will it go? Who will look after it? Who will care for it or make sure it is handled/disposed of properly?

This week we talk with Gabe Fajuri, owner of Potter & Potter Auction House, who is one of the premiere auction houses that specializes in sale of collectibles and antiques of all types, including paper Americana, vintage advertising, rare books, coin-op, playing cards, gambling memorabilia, vintage posters, prints and magicana - antiques and collectibles focused on magic and magicians.

In this episode, Gabe admonishes us to think about our magic collection and begin to do something about it now. That means perhaps cataloging what we have and, if we have anything of monetary consequence, talking with an attorney about how we want our collection handled after our demise or who we want to have it or handle the artifacts.
