They were out of Texas in the late nineties. Around 1998 they were gone. Anyone know what happened to Bob??

Last I heard from a magic shop from there in Dallas that knows him is that he closed down and went back to work for a grocery store chain there.
I know how he felt. I tried to pick up the mantle when he disappeared and was run out of business too.
The only difference between he and I is that he became so disgusted with the whole ball of pathetic non-loyal patronage that he assumedly swore off magic all together.

Doug I thought you had The BEST site on the net. The best customer service and you really wanted to help the magic community. It’s our loss that the Vanishing Art didn't last longer!!!

I had heard that he had a dispute over the business with his girlfriend, who was claiming some ownership interest in it, and that contributed to the demise of the business. I have no idea if what I heard was correct.

I liked the site and I liked dealing with Bob. When he stopped updating the site, I checked back every so often, probably for a couple of years, to see if he was back in business, but no luck.

I also checked back. The site was up for years after he was done. It was the first magic site I ever visited and it brought back great memories. I got the Doc Eason set from him and still have those videos.

He should have left a good-bye note for his loyal customers, though.
