Hi there,

My Name is Ted Bogusta, I have been a fan of Magic for over 25 years. The 2 areas that interest me most are Magic History and Close-up with cards.

A few years ago, I purchased Martinka & Co, aka Flosso Hornmann Magic Shop. The place was once owned by Houdini and dates back to the 1870s. It's kept me busy ever since.

I am currently working on a magic auction of over 100 vintage and new magic items, which will run from Sept 16-22. The sale will include original Kellar, Thurston and Houdini items, as well as New Books, DVDs and hard to find titles such as Frank Garcia's Encyclopedia of Sponge Balls.

You have a nice community here and I look forward to having some coffee and joining in on the discussions.

There is nothing that remains so constant as change. Don't end up like concrete, all mixed up and permanently set. Smile

Welcome aboard, Ted.
You write: "A few years ago, I purchased Martinka & Co, aka Flosso Hornmann Magic Shop. The place was once owned by Houdini and dates back to the 1870s."

And then you add: "It's kept me busy ever since."

You figure? Smile

Seriously, I would certainly assume so! Glad you have time to track us down.
Looking forward to your posts.

Peter,

hehe. I guess that slip reveals I would not mind going back and spending some time in the late 1800s. It would be a challenge to choose which show to see first, Herrmann, Kellar, Houdini or the many other wonderful acts of that period?
