I know most people already know about the great finds you can discover at Wal-Mart, but I just wanted to add mine.

I was looking for a nice rope for the Guinn Ring and Rope Routine which I am learning. At first I didn't see anything thick enough in the fabric department. They only had ribbons, and some decorative string. Then I discovered a goldmine of ropes in a corner of the department. The had a rack of beautiful colored ropes, which I think are used for curtains. The piece I got is a deep velvet red, well-made, and braided. It goes perfectly with the gold ring which I also found in the fabric department at Wal-Mart.

Thanks for the tip Danny. After reading this I headed on down to the local WalMart and bingo, there they were; the great finds you described. Like Dan from Memphis, I too needed that elusive rope for my Ellis Ring.

Thanks, I will also check that out. What is the thickness of the rope? Is it thin enough for Ringleader? Or would it work for Tabary's Rope Routine?

Shane,
The rope is about 1/2" thick. I don't perform Ringleader or the Tabary routine, so I don't know if it works for those.

I couldn't find it in the local Wal Mart fabrics and crafts section.

Sorry you had trouble finding it Larry. I guess not every Wal-Mart carries it. At least one other person on this thread was successful in finding it (so I know I'm not crazy!). Did you ask an employee if they can get some in? I can send you some from my Wal-Mart if you want to try it out. Let me know if you want me to do that.

They have a lot of great stuff at walmart.

cards, rope, adhesive, ... tons of stuff the magician wants.

I think we over look walmart a lot and think we need to purchase everything from a magic shop.

You can find the rope (actually drapery cord or sash cord) at most fabric stores and larger home improvement stores.
