Ever had anything cool thrown in with any magic product orders from any website?

I have had two instances which were very cool and fun... both from Penguin Magic. Years ago they included a Born To Perform bumper sticker with my order. Last week, they included a blue raspberry Tootsie pop.

Anything like this happen to you?

I ordered a magic kit from escape artist Ms. Morgan. The kit was very nice, and I got an autographed picture, 2 mini handcuffs (key chains really) and a bumper sticker.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

There is a computer supply company that always throws some candy in the box. I thought that was a nice touch.

Extra goodwill for a company for only pennies worth of candy or whatever - now that's a bargain.

I got a sweet leather chop cup from Frank at Ambitious Card a few years back when I ordered a pouch. I still use it.

Wow, that's pretty great!!!

Computers and candy... the perfect combo Smile.

I have heard of The Astonishment Project once throwing in a bag of microwave popcorn with an order. Penguin Magic usually throws in M&Ms with random orders but seeing as it's far too hot for them now, they've switched to Tootsie Pops.

I was working for a magic camp, and we ordered a gross (144) of many tricks (crazy cube, ring on coil, Svengali decks etc). In that order, we received 144 breakaway wands, and 144 "Magic TV" tricks. Although, I think we were charged for them.....

I always consider re-usable bubble wrap, packing peanuts and shipping boxes to be a nice bonus.

I miss the days when everything was packed in newspaper. I always enjoyed reading about what was going on in other cities.

I got a sweet bonus when I ordered from Outlaw this year.

And living beings remain in cyclic existence,

When I ordered a bunch of stuff from frank one time he added a custom carrying case for my mogar knives as a gift . Very nice
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

If you order from Bob Solari, you will always get something fun, extra surprises with the order.
