I am redoing my will and trying to make life easier for my wife when I pass. I have no one in my family wanting to carry on the magic, so the distribution of that part of my estate is a problem. Is there anyone who buys the entire collection lump-sum or are there other suggestions. I have a huge library of books and DVD's. I have enough magic to open a large store. All is quality stuff. Not wanting to sell right now. I'm just planning and would appreciate suggestions.

Best

Steve

Hocus Pocus seems to acquire and sell estate magic props & supplies:

And vintage magic books dealers like Byron Walker might be interested in your books:

I would ask my wife or somebody to put the items on Ebay.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I use to have a Craiglist alert set up for magic items for sale. Once had one pop up for "chest of magic items." As I looked, there were a lot of Johnson coin products, some nice looking copper cups, and some other high end items....all for $50. I immediately replied asking about the availability and to confirm the price. I thought they meant $50 for one of the items. Got a reply back that it was a wife telling me she was getting rid of her husband's magic "junk" and the price was for all of it. I told her it was priced way too low, and to either reprice it, or at least, take to a local magic shop I knew who would give her fair price.

Kicker is, her husband wasn't dead. She was just cleaning out his closet and decided to get rid of it. He replied on her account that the items were not for sale...lol...

Thanks for all the input. Paul Gross may have the best solution for me.

The distribution of magic after death may be in the lap of the gods.

Call back in ten years and you might get it for $25.

Dan Bradbury of Bradbury Books & Beyond, is another possibility.

There are some wonderful amateur magicians at your local magic club. A call to the club would most likely pay dividends.
