I'll certainly add my support to Bamba's comments on Jheff's Marketplace of the Mind. Good prices and very fast service.

I remember reading why there are a few countries missing from the list in Magic Depot. Let me see if I can find it.

Ah, here it is.

Where We Ship: The Magic Depot has a global cast of customers, but we do not ship to every country. Some locations, like Nigeria, have record high credit card fraud. We do not ship to any location that has a 60% or higher fraud rate. We only ship to the locations listed on our “Create Account” page. If your country isn’t listed in the drop-down box, we cannot ship you any magic!




Bummer.. If an online store can't ship to a certain country because of credit card fraud, maybe they should just block out credit card payment to that country instead of taking the country off the list. ;D
imagine the possibilities... endless...

I only bought once from Hanklee and never did again.
I ordered some children's magic material and service was bad.
I was charged with a big extra shipping cost, took too long to arrive.

About Hank Lee few years ago, me too I will not order from them again because the books I received from them were old and really disappointment me a lot. Smile

The Magic Warehouse is a great shop. If you haven't ordered from them, you should give them a try. They have super fast shipping overseas and always have mostly everything in stock.

I´ve purchased to various sites, like Tiendamagia, Magicbooksbypost, Magic Wrehouse, World of magic, H&R magic, Kaufman, Genii, e-Bay, Abebooks, Davenports, International Magic, and magician´s sites like S. Beam, Lorayne or M. Powers. I´m happy with all of these places, but if I have to name only one, my option is H&R.

AGREE!! http://www.themagicwarehouse.com is my favourite/best online shop, Howard is always helpful and kind. The shipping cost is also reasonable (also for International order). After 3 years being the customer, never had any problems with this shop. Highly recommended!!

Well - technically - although Hank Lee's is available for internet shopping, they actually have a store that real people can actually visit. I think you have to give some credit to businesses that invest in the old-fashioned, higher overhead way to do business.

Regardless, the only problem I've had with Hank's in almost two decades was one time when a package I ordered got lost in the mail. After waiting a reasonable amount of time I called them and they promptly sent another one to me.

I don't doubt some people have had less than perfect transactions with them - as I mentioned before that happens, but I can't reasonably complain about the service I've received.

I certainly can't say that about two other dealers I've done a fair amount of business with - but I won't name them.

Chacun à son goût.




Although Hank Lee's is an actual store he does provide service over the internet. this type of service must be able to provide safe transactions, up to date inventory, and fast-reliable email responses. the email response is the internets form of customer service. From the person to person dealings I have had with hank lee his customer service is horrible so I don't see why his email response customer service would be any different. I choose to purchase my items elswhere.

Magic Depot rocks. Great customer service - great shipping conditions and frequent special offers for registered customers.

I can fully recommend them.

H and R Magic Bookshop (without a doubt)

http://www.magicbookshop.com

They are the best, have absolutely have the most comprehensive inventory. They actually have read most of them. Richard is a fantastic guy!

They ship immediately by priority mail. They know me by name!
They have been draining my wallet for years (but I love it) Smile

Magic Books by Post is a very long-standing and reputable mail-order company. They have a very large range; many of the books they stock are not readily available elsewhere.

I've been meaning to post this for a few weeks...

H&R Magic has given me some of the best service I have ever had from an internet magic dealer. I ordered a book from them (Roger Klause-In Concert) and it arrived the next day. I live only a few hours away, but still....to receive an order in the afternoon and get it shipped same day...it was great.

Richard Hatch and company have always been competively priced, fair, honest, and just plain nice guys to deal with. They also have a huge inventory and they are EXTREMELY knowelegable on the subject of magic. They are A+++++ in my book.

I would also like to say something about Earth's Largest Magic Shop which is owned by sleight of hand expert David Malek. David is an awesome guy and a very talented magician. His magic shop has a large stock with some hard to find and unique items and he is competively priced. I ordered Steve Forte's book from him and he had it to me very, very quickly. I have also bought some DVD's from him. He also gives very honest reviews of his items. He is also A+++ in my book.

MJM has been very good to me recently. They list what items are in stock, they give discounts to returning customers, they have fast and responsive customer service, you can find out the weight of each item (for international shipping, that's very important), and when they have the items in stock, they ship very fast. Nothing but good experiences from them so far.

I think that Madhatter is perfect!
They search products for you, they have great prices, a really good customer service and fast shipping! What else do you need?

In defense of Hank Lee, they have a great list of products, competitive prices (during sales especially) and service is usually at least decent (although they claim to price match and get truly defensive when you try to get them to really do it). MJM is distinguished by value and service, and Daytona Magic is a good value when they're having sales, as is the Magic Depot, although I find their stock a little less imaginative, especially in books. The big dealer I've had bad luck with is Hocus Pocus. They misadvertised, sent me the wrong item (and broken), were huffy about taking it back, and then rescinded my "membership" price break. While they have great products, I found their service iffy and full of attitude. In books, Lee's stock is as good as Hocus Pocus' and they still usually offer customer service.
