Scam Stuff founder Brian Bushwood is very close to locking down the perfect location for his company’s new headquarters in Austin, TX, but he needs a little more cash to seal the deal – which is why he’s putting everything on his site at deep, Black Friday-esque discount for the next three days.
You can get the devious Outlaws Vault (pictured in above) for $104.07 (nearly $50 off the list price), a full set of the Brian Bushwood Book Test for $549.97 (55% off the list price, the lowest it’s ever been), or get yourself a snazzy lock-picking set for $7.77.
Scam Stuff is still a small shop so there’s a good chance some of this gear will sell out before the long weekend is out, so if you see something you want, grab it now here while supplies last.
It’s been over a year since our favorite mustachioed magician, Steve Valentine, embraced the all-digital future with his excellent Magic on the Go magic tutorial streaming service, but he’s still got a whole bunch of DVDs and other products cluttering up his studio. Thus, he’s been holding a sale to clear out the last of his stock.
A few standouts: His C2P (Cards 2 Pocket) DVD set, which includes 22 hours of material over a whopping seven discs, is down to $100 from $150. His well-received, three-disc Cloth set, which will teach you how to perform the classic “card thru hanky” trick, has been reduced from $50 to $30. Booked was on sale, but is now sadly out of stock.
If you’re after something more tangible than a DVD, you can also pick up five decks of his limited edition VALENTINE playing cards for just $30. The decks are printed on Tally Ho stock by USPCC and come with a host of magician-friendly secrets.
You can see everything that’s on sale here, but be quick, the sale ends on Sunday.
MJM Magic is a simple site, so it’s fitting that its current sale is as straight forward as it gets. For the next three days and 18 hours (give or take an hour or two depending on how long it takes to edit this article), over 500 tricks, decks, and tools will be on sale for 50% off. MJM also offers free shipping within the USA for orders over $50, a cool reward point system, robust price match options and a daily draw for a $10 gift card for everyone who’s spent more than $25 on the site.
The sale includes all kinds of magic paraphernalia, but the items currently in my gift basket are:
Monarchs are a solid entry-level “nice deck.”
I’ve settled on Bicycle Blues for my cack-handed attempts at card magic because so many gimmicks and effects are designed with these cards in mind.
Cheesy? Yes, but I need something to go with that sequin-covered waistcoat I bought on Amazon at 3am.
You can see a list of everything that’s on sale here.
Steve Valentine has been hard at work on his digital streaming magic instruction service Magic on the Go, a platform that puts tons of tricks and real instruction right at your fingertips, wherever you are. That said, he’s still got a bunch of physical DVDs and gaffs kicking around in his inventory, and he’d like some help making them disappear.
Valentine’s just launched a flash sale on his website where you can save up to $50 on all of his material. You can grab a brick of five Valentine playing card decks for $30 (normally $50), the Tom Stone-endorsed Cloth DVD set for $30 (normally $50), or get C2P, a seven-DVD set of expert card magic instruction for only $100 (normally $150).
All of this and more is available on Steve Valentine’s website until supplies last – as of this writing, his mind-reading magic trick Booked! is already out of stock, so if you see something you like, grab it while you can.
As always, you can subscribe to Magic on the Go for $29.99 a month, or $120 for a full year of streaming magic goodness.
David Blaine’s latest deck of cards, Stoics, hit the market today and word on the street is they’re great. One deck will cost you US$15, but for just 24 hours, you can pick up an entire brick (that’s 12 decks, for the uninitiated) for just $90. A quick bit of cutting-edge-journalism (elementary maths) tells me that’s a saving of $90 off the regular price of $180. Fifty percent, in fact.
The brick comes in a simple black box. Covered in art paper and stamped with silver foil, it’s a nice contrast against the stark white tuck boxes within.
The cards themselves are largely understated and mostly standard save for the usual Blaine quirks we’ve come to expect – I’m not sure any other magician could get away with putting his own face on the King of Spades. The card are printed by the Expert Playing Card Company on JN Finish stock, which, according to the deck’s shop page, is the closest you’ll get to the feel of those insanely expensive Jerry’s Nugget decks.
You can get a deck or a brick of Stoics at the David Blaine Shop.
