Here is an effect with an unusual appeal ... for the discriminating magician ... for the performer who wants a
trick with sustained interest and a surprise finish. In
effect, the performer displays a wooden tray upon which
are two square wooden tubes. These tubes are both
shown empty and replaced upon the tray. To the
accompaniment of some inconsequential patter, the
wizard proceeds to produce a handkerchief from one of
the tubes. He then deposits the handkerchief in the
other tube. This is repeated six times. Finally, the performer indicates that magic is all a
matter of imagination and to prove this he calmly shows that the first tube never contained any handkerchief and there was certainly none put into the second ... the tubes
are empty! No trace of any handkerchief is left at all. The effect is entirely self-contained
and can be performed under any conditions ... even entirely surrounded. No skill or
sleight of hand is needed. The apparatus is beautifully made and finished. The tubes
fold flat. Complete with patter and instructions . By the inventor, Robert Harbin.
For those who would like to try our Access Point downloads but do not want to risk any money we have added Vanish Magazine 7 (pdf format, 154 pages) for one cent that you can add to any order you place. Please allow time to get this order processed since I am sure there will be many orders.
What are Access Point downloads? Access Point Downloads are videos or books that are transferred electronically from our website to your computer through the internet in a safe and very easy to use format (like Netflix). We will also keep the Access Point products you purchase in a personal “library” so if anything happens to your computer we have all your products saved for you in one place. You never have to look for them. ALL your download videos and books are available 24/7 with a click of a button on our site.
We obviously could offer this free in our freebie section but we wanted you to be able to go through the actual Access Point process, IE getting the email with the download info and such. If you have ever wanted to do Access Point downloads but just couldn't quite pull the trigger, try this out.
On April 23rd Abbotts hit the 1000 mark in downloads. When we got to 999, we uploaded the first Abbott catalog which we scanned in from one of the few remaining ones from 1934. We thought it was appropriate that this first catalog almost 80 years ago be the 1,000 download. Surely Percy and Recil could not have imagined digital downloads when they published this (according to history, Percy Abbott needed cash for this first catalog which prompted him to partner with Recil Bordner for $1,000), but now folks all over the world can print out this first catalog which is about 25 pages or so with a centerfold middle.
A little over a week later we hit 1100 downloads, we want Abbotts to be your one stop shop for Downloads of all type.
To help keep track of these downloads we have a special pdf file which we update whenever we update the site - Download Catalog.
Abbotts In OZ
Abbott Bouquet at 1:26 mark
Currently two motion pictures have Abbott items. In Burt Wonderstone you can see the Abbott ads in their notebook. In Oz, The Great and Powerful you can see an appearing table and firebowl to flowers, both purchased through Abbotts. Best of all, the bouquet of flowers that Oz produces for Theodora was one of Abbotts Indestructible Bouquet. This marks the first time an Abbott prop has been featured "over the rainbow"!
