This free event takes place in Colon Michigan. Beginning at 9 am the Flea Market is open and every hour on the hour will be a 15 minute auction up to 2 pm and then the rest of the auction will take place. The Flea Market and Auction are FREE to attend, you only need to pay if you want to sell magic, tables are available at $30 each (allows you to also put 3 items in the auction) and can be purchased online at the url below.

Once again, professional auctioneer Larry McMechan will be handling the auction for the sellers.

This year a few changes, as you can tell by the title Abbotts has dedicated this event to the memory of Hank Moorehouse who created and produced it for 3 decades. You can see Hank telling the history of the event (plus a few hundred pics of past flea markets) at the url below.

Due to the amount of magic Abbotts has accumulated over the last year, they have organized it into lots. I did have a chance to get some of the info on what will be in those lots (Abbotts will have a completed list at the event and I will post it here hopefully in a few days) and you can view what I current have at Abbotts facebook page below.

Also, the Colon Historical Society will be having a Magicians Graveyard Tour at 2:30 pm (at the end of the flea market) weather permitting. If you would like a map and description of the tour they are available at Abbotts or you can download one at the link below.

I personally think this will be the best flea market and auction ever for Abbotts. I have seen what Abbotts has and they have been boxing it up and organizing it for weeks. There are probably a half dozen or so illusions not counting what is coming from others. Lots of coin magic from what I saw. They will have over 500 books at the $5 table, most for under a buck (see Tops article below) and the amount of magic is staggering, you can see some of it in the youtube link below.

Remember that Abbotts is only one or two tables in this event. There are many other people selling magic at tables. I personally am looking forward to a couple collectors coming in displaying their merchandise. This is (IMO) the best investment you can make in magic, I have been coming to this for 7 years now and have always done well (I have also gotten some great Halloween values here including 3 talking thru boris skulls).

See you May 11th, bring the family, this is a very laid back event and you will enjoy it. We look forward to spending the day with you.

We will have several magic collectors setting up tables/booths.

Neil Fosters Cane will be at the Flea Market. As I understand it this cane was made for Neil and it featured important moments in his life. One of the Collectors coming from the South is bringing this. Here is a pic

Also, another collector coming from the West sent us a picture of one of the items he will be bringing to this event, an original Carter poster. http://www.magicgettogether.com/carterposter.jpg

We did a trial run, setting out 1 box to see how much room it took up (1 box = 2 tables, we have about 10 boxes), I took advantage of this and snapped some pics to give you an idea of what will be at the $5 table besides books (Many of the $5 bags have several items in them.). Remember, this is about 1/10 of one of the booths, there will be many more booths. This event is a great place to bring the kids, give them $5 or $10 and watch the fun they will have.

the pics are high res so you should be able to zoom in if anything catches your fancy.

Stick around afterwards if its nice and enjoy the famous magician graveyard tour (weather permitting). I have not seen the Colon Historical Society version of this event so this will be a first for me (Al the Only does the Get Together tour and really deserves credit for bringing this tour to new levels, of course Karrell Fox started this tour - you can see Karrell giving the tour at http://www.magicgettogether.com/lakeside.html ).

It was pointed out to me that I did not give the address for the Colon elementary School for our GPS visitors, it is below.
328 State Street Colon, MI 49040

Abbotts will have a few illusions/illusionettes at the Hank Moorehouse Flea Market, I snapped a pic of some of the props and posted them at http://topsmag.com/Newest_Tops/?p=7519

Extended forecast for Colon on Saturday is a chance for showers with a high of 61. Although the weather will not affect the indoor Flea Market there is a free magicians graveyard tour that takes place right after so we are hoping for good weather for that event.

And a special thanks to you- I had a terrific time- and I brought home two large boxes of stuff I'll probably never use (but at least the price was great!). 6 books for $5, hard to beat that! Thanks again to Abbott's and Greg, had a wonderful morning in Colon.
