Tabasco Magic

Someone looking at his newly built home, after the scaffolding has just been removed. That’s the feeling I had when this new web shop was launched. The windows and doors are in the right place, a few spots still need to be plastered and some walls need that final coat of paint. We’re putting an effort into removing the last imperfections: an incomplete text, a missing translation or a faulty search engine… But just like rolling out the red carpet outside a new establishment accompanied by the smell of fresh paint, so too does a new web shop present itself: shiny, untouched but still intriguing…

Tabasco you say? The pepper, the sauce, the coastal land that is Mexico? No, sir, Tabasco Magic! Magic for magicians? Hot magic for (hot) magicians? Yes! Not another dealer? Yes! More tricks? Yes! Same old tricks? No! More card tricks? No! More knickknacks? No! Magic tricks to tick off fellow magicians? NO! Here’s why:

Because we have been part of this unusual but fascinating scene for many years, we feel the urge to finally present our fellow magicians with interesting, amazing, ingenious, good looking and reliable magic tricks and accessories.
There are already so many, I hear the elders say. Of course there are, many more than we can even imagine! But a place where things are tried and tested to see what their effect is and how useful they are before they are offered to all? Where ideas are exchanged and tried out and where new effects can come into being…
The apparel does not make the man and much less do the accessories make the magician. The device does not make or break the magician, but the magician himself. He is the master of ceremony, not his gloves or shiny shoes, no matter how magnificent they look. But still…
On the other hand, a real magician doesn’t work with faded cloth or crumpled tricks. A real magician has style and class and although he knows that the one creating the illusion is himself and not the attributes, he is not an every day actor who works with merely his voice and body. He is always carrying something: a deck of cards, a pigeon, a banknote belonging to a member of the audience…
And it is for that magician, for you, that we started this adventure. We want to get the slightly more special magic trick off the higher shelf and present it to you. The choice is yours, we can only offer. There is not that much at the moment, but we don’t aim to become a big company. We DO want to be able to offer you a couple of hundred products… and even that is a lot! Quality as opposed to quantity. And whether or not we will be able to continue obviously does not depend on us.
A TOUCH OF QUALITY: that is our credo. It has nothing to do with vanity, but with a clear view on our beloved world of magic and illusion!
