Look around, depends on the DVD, some are available largely from the individual, some are sold in limited distribution. Some get them directly from L&L if they are L&L products, others use distributors, I get a lot from Denny and Lee's and from Dennis Loomis, just good service from those folks and Dennis sometimes has a bit better price on L&L videos than most. Generally best place to get them is from the subject of the video at one of their lectures, often a nice discount. I buy all my Daryl videos from Daryl at his website. Same with books. If the author is offering them for sale, I buy from them, not so much because they are cheaper, and sometimes they are the same price, but that way the author makes a few more pennies per book. and that keeps books and videos comming. So many videos out there now, by so many artists, on so many subjects, and so many sources. Many of us try to utilize the brick and mortar magic shops simply to help keep them in existence.

If I can buy items from the author or originator of the specific media I do. Otherwise I try to visit my local brick and mortar magic shop to find what I'm looking for, or even just to pick up a few tips from the people hanging around. A trip to the "Shop" is always more fun than ordering something online. If I cannot get what I'm looking for through the "shop" then I start to look online for other options.

I can definitely agree with Photius' recommendation. I ordered some books from Dennis' site and was surprised how fast and efficient his service is and his prices are indeed competitively low.

I second that. You might save one or two bucks buying on-line, but you will miss the great fun and experience at the shop - meeting other magicians, getting support and so no.

You can get some great deals on DVDS and books buying right from the posters on the magic Café. Look at the selling section of the dvds and books and also look at the good buyer list too. But I also prefer to buy mine from the author and get it personalized!

May humble opinion. Try to get things from your local magic shop. In a world that is revolving around the internet I know its hard not to buy online. And for some things you just may have to. But if you don't support your local brick and mortar store, it probably wont be there for you when you need it most.

I have to agree, I always buy from my local magic shop, the price is a bit more than the internet but the advice I get means I get a dvd I am interested in. I can also ask for help on some effects on the dvd I am having trouble with.

I'd buy from my magic shop however the owner isn't really too respectful to his customers. In fact one time he actually pushed me out of the way to get to another customer. Not a shove but an unconcious push on my arm, get out of my way style. I was pretty shocked. My friend and I weren't too impressed.
