2020 is the end... for our website.
Several of the items, including pouches, will still be available elsewhere and on most of the main magic websites.

You can still contact me and sign up for the newsletter which will give info on where the products will be hosted.
If you purchased something it will get delivered.

My interests have changed and what started out as a 1 product website (the leather cylinder)
ended with over 80 original products and more work than I care to manage.


Thanks to all of you for your support over the years and happy new year.

Thank you Frank! I will cherish my pouch, and my busking servante. I wish you the best. Always enjoyed your website.

Dang that isn't the best news of the New Year!

I wish you well in your new direction and ventures. I love the various products I bought from you over the years (especially my pouches)! Thank you for the quality and range of your worker's products.

That's terrible news, but I wish the best for you, and your family Frank.

With the end of theambitiouscard.com comes the end of my ball making as well, my daughter has learned some of what I have to teach, but she went her own way with it and can't make an account here.

If anyone has purchased a set from me via The Ambitious Card and needs a replacement or questions answered I am still available here. I don't log on often, but will know if I receive a PM.

It was an accident that became a lot of fun, thanks to everyone who purchased a set or more, and I can say magicians all around the globe are playing with my...
well they ARE just about everywhere.

Special thanks to Frank S. for everything over the years, I am sad to see the site go!
Of course, thanks to Bill Palmer, as he was the guy who directed me to Frank so many years ago, and for the museum that I loved to look through.

Not sure if I've played with your balls before, but am sad to see the end of Frank and The Ambitious Card. I've bought a lot of things from him over the years. Always great to deal with.

The original pouch I bought from Frank over 12 years ago is still in fine shape despite vigorous usage!

Looks like I'd better take great care of it, as it might be hard to get another one...

Best of luck to you, Frank. Thanks for your great products over the years.

Products will still be available thru the shop.
Trying to find a way to make that happen.
I’ve given them permission to continue to make the products we offered.

Thanks everybody.

Thank you for the great service and props. My Jimmy Talksalot pouch is still in top shape after maybe 12 years.

I wish you the best. I still have the custom pouch you made and am sad you never offered it as an official product.

Thanks everyone.
i'm working with the shop so they can set up to take things over.

I'll still be available to help them as needed.

I'll miss them.

I am really sorry to hear this. I never had the money to order any of your stuff, but it all looked like high-quality merchandise.

Best of luck in whatever direction life steers you!

The shop is quickly trying to create their own website offering the same great products.
I support their efforts and have worked with them for many years.
Stop by and say hello.

If you don't see the products you're interested in, reach out to them and I'm sure they will get them up sooner than later.
I'll continue to help them get set up.

Hello Frank

Well, we've never met, and I'm not even a customer (sorry...) but I've read your great posts on here over the years and want to say that the art we love is all the better because
You're a part of it.

I'm more or less retired now, but it has been my privilege to know some of the greats such as Ken Brooke, Pat Page, David DeVal and a few others who make this journey so worthwhile.

I consider you to be one of the greats, and wish you all the best for the future.

Riley

I only just saw this thread. Very sad. I have bought the Killer chopcup and Ballistic pouch previously, both excellent products.

I own 2 of your LePaul Wallets, LOVE THEM, they hold a full size envelope, ordering a 3rd from Carlos so I don't have to reset so fast.
Wish you the best of luck Frank!

Thanks Mike! Great wallets. Glad you like them.
