I didn't know where to write this, but is anyone else having troubles using Angelo Carone's site http://www.tenyoworld.co.uk/ ... ?

If so, Angelo, what's happening ... ?

I haven't been able to get to the Tenyoworld home page for a while now either although the individual pages are still there such as http://www.tenyoworld.co.uk/Effects%20Index%20Page.htm and http://www.tenyoworld.co.uk/gallery.htm

Now I have to report unfortunately a negative transaction.

I have never posted a negative buying review such as this on the café and if it is against café policy it should be immediately removed.

Your “mileage may vary” of course, but I don’t want anyone to have a repeat of the buying experience I had with Ebay/online seller Steenschmidt from Denmark. First off his prices are enormously high compared with anyone else I’ve seen on or off Ebay.

A google search with my son for Tenyo Crystal Pyramid should never have even landed me on an Ioffer page for what I now know is “Mystery Pharaoh”, apparently a Chinese made version of the genuine Tenyo Crystal Pyramid. If you didn’t know that this or any other Tenyo item was produced by another company, you of course wouldn’t be expecting or looking for any disclaimer stating it was SIMILAR to the real Tenyo item. In similar fashion while watching a magic card trick you wouldn’t be looking for or expecting a DF card if you didn’t even know one could exist.

I didn’t know a Chinese version even existed, and as the seller obviously knew this…he didn’t warn me about it until AFTER the item was shipped. Then the item arrived damaged…a wire necessary for the modus operandi was sticking out. Did the seller know about this in advance? Or was it damaged due to the soft bubble wrap envelope it was sent in? Not one Tenyo item we’ve bought over the past months has EVER been sent in anything other than a box. For all the high priced items this seller ships this is especially surprising and is inexusable for an overseas shipment.

Yes I did receive a refund, but only after paying about $10 to return the damaged unworkable item to the seller in Denmark. Oh and by the way, where was the “free trick” that was also advertised on the Ioffer page? That never arrived either!

So, I’m sure many have had positive dealings with Steen Schmidt, but I can only make future buyers aware based on my personal experience

What annoys me is my headline on ebay like "Fabulous Magic trick (NOT TENYO)"

Hehe yes indeed Stereo, there are a few people advertising like that in the hope of attracting more potential buyers. Very lame imho.

Most positively correct, Sir!
Besides you clearly will need some days to acclimate to the look of these bulks and masses of boxes piling up in my hangar!

Will you really take the risk? Then come to my house, to my haunted house....

Just finished a very pleasant transaction with Nicolino. I HIGHLY recommend buying Tenyo magic from him. Here are some things I noted:

Fast shipping
Very well packed
Excellent communication
Items exactly as described or better
No nonsense
Flexible
Knowledgeble
Trustworthy

I'll definitely be buying more magic from you Nicolino!

I also want to commend Nicolino for a fantastic Tenyo transaction completed a few months ago. He was extremely gracious and willing to please at all times and above all else ethical and honest. Would do business with him again and again. Despite it being an international transaction (Germany to USA), mine was complicated by the United States Postal Service without fault whatsoever to Nicolino. Can you believe the item was lost for 2 months, even though we both could track it to Boston (where I live)- and yet the Boston post office lost it for 2 months. Not surprising, even though they claim through rain, snow etc.

2 months later, the package shows up in excellent condition! Superbly packed, still sealed- the item still in perfect, unused mint condition.

Way to go, Nicolino you get an A+. Looking forward to a future transaction.

United States Post Office, your grade is far worse. Not looking forward to a future transaction, even though I get many each week.

The moral of the story: One can choose his/her vintage Tenyo supplier who provides outstanding service. The same cannot be said for the more than two-century old governmental organization.

Cheers,

D
