In every case of selling a magic effect it is encumbent upon the SELLER to give you the full information on what you need for the item you are buying. If something takes some Magician's Wax then they should tell you that and give you the very reasonable opportunity to order some, find it elsewhere or not buy the trick that needs it. You have every right to be angry with your purchase. Best,

Update:

I went back and the owner of the shop gave me a nice 'normal' wallet with lots of places to hide the secret to the trick.

When I mentioned my ire at arriving home to find that I could not perform the trick without a wallet that meets certain needs, the response was "wow, I hadn't thought of that since everyone has _A_ wallet, but maybe not one that works." Anywho, I have now ordered a gimmicked magic wallet too, but the one I got from the store works VERY well too.

Tks
Jim

Obviously the owner of the shop is first rate. He went out of his way to make you, the customer happy. I would be very happy to continue to do business with this establishment. He knows how to build up a clientelle.

I had bought Twisted sisters by John Bannon. I also bought Queens Out Of Control by Gerry Griffin(sp?). Imagine if all I got were the instructions on how to perform these card effects and not the neccessary items to actually do the effects.

I feel strongly that if the neccessary items to perform an effect are not included with the product then something like "Instructions only" need to be included in the advertisement/description of the product.
Magic is a vanishing art.

Gotta agree with Brad here. Magic is different than almost any other product in that you're purchasing secrets and methods. It is not returnable or exchangable just because you don't like it or want it..or even because you can't do it because you don't know the slights or have the props.

The dealers do have an obligation to identify and inform regarding additional props, or incomplete instructions. It's their business, the're supposed to know what they are selling!! It is also their responsibility IMHO to NOT support those inventors, suppliers or manufacturers who choose to NOT supply such information in their packaging and/or promotional material.

I don't really grumble over dvds so much but if you buy a trick and its incomplete I really think that you should be informed earlier....its a pity that there are many dealers out there that has little care for their part to sell the product..magic is always filled with misleading and insufficient information..and its not cheap..deal with that!!!!
