Here is a sneak peek at the new Magic display at the Colon Historical Museum. Lots of wonderful and one of a kind items to be seen here! Monk Watson's vaudeville hats, Percy Abbott's vent figure Joey, Blackstone memorabilia, Sally Banks' wardrobe trunks and so much more! This and the other exhibits are being worked on by a host of volunteers - it's been fun working with them all! The new displays will be ready for next summer just in time for magic week!

It was great having undergraduate students from Michigan State University here today. They are filming a documentary on magic and of course - came to the Magic Capital Of The World - where else :) A great group of men who have a real passion for their art. We are anxious to see the final copy.

It is always a fun time of the year especially when you can share it with your granddaughter! Yep, Lily is almost 4 years old now and Halloween is so much fun - especially at the magic shop. She loves greeting the customers and showing them her 'latest' new trick. Al gets a kick out of her especially after he finishes a project and brings it in and she shows him 'her' latest new effect :)
Business has been over the top lately here at FAB Magic and we have some big announcements forthcoming - cccchhhanges ! All for the better and solidifying FAB Magic as one of the premiere magic companies in the world. Thanks to all of you for your support and oh by the way - Lily says 'thanks' as well :) Watch for more used magic this weekend.

Here is wonderful photo of Harry Blackstone Jr. signing an autograph(s) in the Jerry Conklin home. Yep, that's Jerry C on the right (ca 1970's) - We believe that is Jeff Boyer & Jim Fitzsimmons who are the lucky recipients of Harry's signature. The Conklins have hosted annual parties at their residence during magic week for over 25 years!
Both of these wonderful gentlemen are now gone but the memories live on. Thanks to Cindy Conklin for providing this neat picture.

Meet "Joey". As I work with the Colon Historical Society to improve the new magic displays, you find 'treasures'. This is one of them. "Joey" was Percy Abbott's ventriloquist figure and he performed with him overseas and here in the United States. As I held him I couldn't help but wonder if he could really 'talk' what stories he could tell about the people, places and events that have shaped his existence. If only 'dummies' could talk - and then again - maybe they can.
'Joey' used to tell Perc - " Be careful what you say or I'll spit in yer eye!" and then without warning 'Joey' would proceed to spit a stream of water into the audience. I can just imagine the reaction.
Our new website www.colonmichigan.org is a tribute to treasures like 'Joey' and the other jewels of this community. Won't you come visit?
