You are so correct! Choice makes the difference when it comes to FUN. Cremation or burial? That's why all FUNerals begin with FUN. And it's not just my opinion, 8 out of 10 cadavers agree.

Got mine also. Love it, but not going to carry it in my pocket. Most people probably don't realize what effort is put into just finding the stuff. The picture don't do it justice. Well done! Thanks for offering this.

Only 10 left for sale, and then poof! Steve vanishes for another couple of years.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

46 sold; only 1 left.

I guess 3 were sold outside of ebay.

Who is going to get the last one?
Jack Straw from Wichita, cut his buddy down
And dug for him a shallow grave, and laid his body down
Half a mile from Tucson, by the morning light
One man gone and another to go, my old buddy you're moving much too slow
We can share the women, we can share the wine

Sorry to break up the fun here...and it is fun...but I finely had an opportunity to explore this exquisite set of props and have to share the love.

Mr. Peebles has hit another home run. Albeit a small home run (everything fits in a small matchbox...not the larger "strike on anything" boxes), which still succeeds big time in making a huge impression. As tiny as this kit is, Steve put as much caring and love into it as his now legendary "The K**ing Game." Every detail has been thought out with great attention to researching the right and accurate props, aging them correctly if, and as needed, and then adding his own personal touches with his annotations that completely brand the prop as his. This is a small detail, but a huge advantage.

Unless he has mastered some incredible handwriting duplicating machine, I am assuming Steve handwrites (actually prints) on all of these props, which must take a long time, with a lot of missteps along the way. And if so, well, the results are worth it. For me, the hand printing makes this prop a killer. His unique style of printing is that of the "every person," which makes using these materials so easy and organic...smeared, aged, innocently penciled printed messages...so perfect. And so uniquely his. Even our most cherished bizarre magic creators haven't yet achieved this comfort level of hand-written reveals.

Aside from me fawning over the graphic design details, Steve has again shown us how taking the proper amount of time to research and collect the right elements from the past, will yield great returns in the future. His instructions are relatively brief, but informative. Yet the number of effects that can be performed with this miniature illusion show is very impressive. Seasoned Bizarre Magicians will have a field day with these props and discover countless possibilities from a seemingly limited set of resources.

For me, opening up this delightful tiny offering was like opening up my first magic set. I imagined so many big tricks, and then saw a lot of small pieces and parts and feeling a bit let down. Upon further examination, I discovered an unending amount of awe and amazement.

Thank you Mr. Peebles

Here's an idea: Give away a worry doll to your volunteer to use in the traditional manner when s/he gets home

They're cheap as chips on Amazon

I got mine yesterday and I'm very pleased with it and my interactions with the creator. Very prompt responses when I messaged them about an issue with the address I provided. As for the item it's one of those great things that you totally could have come up with it yourself, but you didn't
