I always buy things from Penguin Magic.
Even with $23 FedEx shipping to the UK, it's still cheaper than ordering in the UK.
And probably due to luck, my Penguin orders never got hit with import tax.

Heck, my favorite magic stores are the Café and SME. Can get pretty much anything I want at an unbeatable cost. The community ships fast too.


I agree 100%. Tons of great sellers and deals right here on The Café. And Stevens Magic Emporium is a discerning seller that only offers quality effects. Great personal service.

I'll throw out another thumbs up for Hocus Pocus. They've always done fine by me, and I like their huge range of products and collectible props.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

Penguin has a wide variety but even Amazon has tricks for cheaper shipping costs.Smile

I looked at buying a $35 book from Penguin, but it was going to cost $27 to ship it to NZ.

I now just buy books from bookdepository.com (free shipping), and look for magic with "everyday items". The cost of shipping makes magic incredibly expensive in New Zealand...

Penguin Magic is great but I also appreciate Murphys Magic for the Interviews they have on Tuesdays.

I have the same problem as Rob from NZ, here on the island of Majorca the shipping costs are prohibitive. It can cost more than the item you are buying.I recently was going to order from SEO, its was an origami effect, they wanted something silly for shipping so I ordered the same thing from Meir Yedid and the shipping was free ! Guess where I WI'll be ordering in future.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

Warning: We will run out of new tricks in

I am constantly amazed by how Penguin Magic just blows most sites out of the water. Sometimes it's in the little things. I received a package from another online store and they used USPS bubble shipping envelopes as packing material. That just seemed dishonest. I was so turned off. Other websites make it more difficult to download. I think for anyone setting up a website, they should study Penguin and how they do business. I heard Acar say in an interview that they studies all the major websites for months before creating Penguin.

All together I think penguin does it best but I also can recommend alakazam and magicbox.

I probably already said Penguin earlier in this thread, but I also love Laflin Magic; the family is really very nice. And Silk Magic Tricks is another of my faves.

Penguin. For one thing, I'm supporting the local economy.

Lot's of Penguin fans here! I add my fandom of Penguin as well.

Their customer service is definitely excellent. I have only had very few MINOR issues, but they never cease to go above and beyond to make sure everything works out.

Also, that video they send of them packing your stuff is really cool!

Penguin: fast service, even to Australia, and good shipping price through fed-ex. Madhatter: pretty fast considering where they ship from, and shipping is also a fair price. Certainly cheaper than buying from a shop in Oz.

I price shop, including shipping. Penguin usually wins and they ship fast. Things that can go in a flat envelope ship free.
