Just picked up Greg Wilson's "Dishonest Abe" for $17 - very happy, as it's sold out otherwise, and the props alone are worth the money.

On the other hand, I also picked up Paul Green's "I Knew It All the Time" last week via the Open Box, and the jumbo cards were discolored and not particularly attractive. Maybe you take the wheat with the chaff buying seconds, but the ad copy does say "like new."

Well guess what - Mr. Green saw my post on here and sent me a brand new "I Knew It All the Time" set out of the blue. I offered to pay him but he wouldn't take anything. The set is sooo much nicer than the ones I received through the Penguin Open Box - clean and white, spanking new. Big fan of Mr. Green before this, but what an incredible gentleman.
Now appearing nightly in my basement.

You can't wait too, too long or someone else will jump on it. I was interested in a certain item that came up for sale and it dropped quite a bit. I thought I would wait for it to drop just a little bit more, but I was too late. Someone else jumped on it before me. This happened on 2 occasions.

You can practice on items you don't plan to buy. Think of a price that you would pay for the item and see if you would have been able to buy it for that price. Smile
How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb? Regardless, for magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.
