****The Parent Assembly auction has been rescheduled to Thursday, February 1 (after its previous postponement due to weather).***
The event will be held at Fantasma Magic, 213 West 35th Street, #401, New York City, 8 p.m.
Rare tricks and books, videos, decks of cards, specially donated magic collectibles, and numerous bargain items are among the magic materials that will be on the block at the auction presented by Parent Assembly #1, Society of American Magicians. The auction will be held at Fantasma Magic's new store (see details below).
This year, in addition to the many items expected to be sold by Parent Assembly members, the Auction will feature specially donated tricks, cards, and books for which the entire proceeds will benefit the Assembly. For example Tannen's Magic has donated a "Mysterious" selection for which their shop is well-known, Steve Cohen has contributed autographed decks of special cards that were given to audience members at the 5000th performance of his show Chamber Magic, Doug Edwards is providing vintage magic tricks complete with instructions, and David Kaye, George Schindler, and Herb's Magic have all donated other merchandise and memorabilia.
Anyone is welcome to attend to bid on the magic tricks, books, videos, supplies, magazines, memorabilia and more that will be on sale. Aside from the possibility of finding the perfect item for your act or collection there often is exciting bidding action to add to the evening's fun.
For 115 years Parent Assembly has promoted the art of magic and served as a nucleus of camaraderie among members of New York's magic community. Come join us this Thursday for an exciting event that supports the organization's activities.
