I ordered a set of beanbags for juggling and got an extra one from the nice woman who runs the shop.

When I order things from Hank Lee that need extra packaging, he usually uses newspaper. It was nice to see what was going on up there. Oh that Garfield...

I remember the most unforgetable surprise I ever got with an order. I ordered from the Elf out east, and when my package finally arrived on my porch next to my front door, I was taken aback to find inside the box an old crushed beer can, (no beer)some rocks, a lot of dirt and some grass.

But no magic.

Well, what happened is that someone stole the package off my porch, removed the magical contents, and put that other crap in the box in it's stead. Nice guy, eh?

It wasn't the dealers fault, of course.

But needless to say, I was NOT a happy magic camper.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

After I ordered the Twins from Frank, I had a question about the routine. He mailed me the Simon Lowell DVD. Get your at The Ambitious Card.
One of the last living 10-in-one performers. I wanted to be in show business the worst way, and that was it.

I recently got a newspaper in a box that took quite a bit of time to arrive.

Isn't it a shame about the Titanic?

I ordered some assorted stuff from Frank at The Ambitious Card and he gave me a free Halloween chop cup.

I once got a live wasp in a crystal production box I ordered that was sent Second Day Air. Hopefully it wasn't intentional... Smile

Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

I was trying to avoid the legal route, but now that I have a witness...

Back in the days when I ordered from Hank Lee I used to get surprise charges on my credit card bill, if that counts.

Frank is the man. I ordered some stuff from him about a month or so ago, and he included a free Lovell vid. I've gotten some free stuff from L&L and Hocus Pocus, too.

The Astonishment Project did give out popcorn when they first opened, I still have a couple bags.

I got a box around the stuff I ordered once. That was cool.
