Default Anyone collect historical magic stuff?

I really want to find an interesting antique magic piece for my home. I'd love to get like an old magicians table or a magicians trunk, a large trick box, tricks that display well or even a larger old prop. I've been having a really tough time finding something. I mean, I have found a couple of things but I have to imagine that I am not searching for them correctly.

I'd also be interested in some older magic collectibles like items owned by famous magicians, their tricks, stuff like that. But I just seem to be really bad at searching for it. Anyone know some good collectible shops or something that sell historical magic stuff?

Thanks in advance!

Justin

Nothing specific. The show simply showed all sorts of weird stuff, including antique magician stuff. If you can email the store, you might get some leads in your area.

Thanks!

I was finally able to find the right section on Ebay so I was just searching wrong. I really want to find something interesting looking for an accent piece in my house. Something that will spark conversation. There are some really cool vintage disappearing dove cages that look like older antique cages which are hot right now anyways... except these can make the bird disappear lol

One of those boxes used for cutting someone in half could make an intersting coffee table. Put a piece of glass over it and possibly add some short legs to get it at the right height.

Head and legs sticking out of each end optional.

lol... This is very similar to what I would want to do except I already have a unique coffee table so I am looking for something to make a bar or something.
