I was just wondering if anybody has heard of these guys?

http://www.blackboxwholesale.com

Saw them in a kiosk at our local mall. Their packaging looks great, but the poor russian girl trying to pitch was just awful. Looks like they are pitching svens, stips, and IT kits. Their prices seemed a bit high, $40 for a dvd, deck, and some printed stuff in a nice box. They were also selling a magic kit for $150 that seemed to have a combo of the above, but I'm not really sure. The prices seemed a bit high to me for an impulse buy, but man it sure makes me feel better about asking for $10!

Anyway I was just curious if you guys had heard of them

Thanks!

I don't know where, but I have heard of them before.

Very overpriced. $40 for a Svengali Deck and DVD? I don't know about anyone else, but I do $10, and that's with a 2 card monte. At $40, I don't see wholesale being reasonable. I hope it is at least Bicycle cards. In gold.

I have spoken to the guys selling 'Mr. Fuzzy' at the mall once. They tried to demo to me and I said 'I have cases of them at home.' They were confused and asked if I sell them, and how much. The guy almost fell off his seat when I said $4. They were selling them for $15.

A Google search brought up a video of them revealing the levitation kit on Youtube. Not just someone who bought it and uploaded it, but Black Box themselves. Nice.
