Any orders placed between now and Monday will be processed on Tuesday the 22nd.
A good way to remember when MJM Magic will be closed is to look at the US Government's holiday schedule. Since we rely heavily on the US Postal Service to ship out all our packages every day, then if they are closed, we aren't able to ship out the majority of our daily orders. Therefore, we usually give everyone here a day off as well.
As always, rain or shine, holiday or not, our website is ALWAYS functional and open for taking your orders. We simply won't be here to process, email, and ship anything until the next business day when we arrive back to work!
If you have any further questions, just contact us through our website (www.MJMMagic.com) and we will be happy to answer them for you.

This week's freebie happens to be the booklet, "Easy Magic Tricks Book - Over 50 Tricks."
In this 'Easy Magic Tricks' book you will learn over 50 tricks that you can perform using objects that can be found around the house. These tricks are easy to learn, fun to perform, and will simply amaze your friends and family!
It retails for $4.00 each, but we're giving them away for free!
Here's how you can qualify:
1. Place an order over $25.00
2. ASK FOR IT!
That's it! You must do both to qualify!!! Simply spend $25.00 in our store, and then ask for the item on the checkout screen of our website, and we will throw it into your order for FREE! That's almost a 20% value for free with all qualifying orders!
Here's the list of clarifications and exceptions:
1. This doesn't apply to any orders placed prior to 2/17/11 at 8:00am, nor can we extend this after we have given away all of our units. Sorry, no exceptions. Thank you for understanding.
2. The promotion only applies to SINGLE orders. You cannot place two separate orders of $15.00 and then get the $25.00 freebie.
3. The $25.00 spent cannot include shipping, tax, or discounts. An order of $20.00 with a $5.00 shipping charge doesn't qualify because you are only spending $20.00 in merchandise. Likewise, an order of $25.00 prior to using a 10% discount coupon will not apply because you are not spending the full $25.00 in our store.
4. If this item is added to your shopping cart automatically, but then you fail to meet any of the above rules, we will manually remove it from the final order if you don't spend the minimum $25.00 after shipping or discounts are factored in.
5. This item is not given away with Gift Certificate purchase orders. I.E. You can't just purchase a $25.00 Gift Certificate and expect to get the freebie. The gift certificate needs to be spent on merchandise in order to qualify.
6. Only one freebie per customer please.
7. You must ask for it on our Checkout Page by mentioning it in your Order Comments! It's not automatically included unless you ask for it.
8. Once all supplies are gone, the promotion will abruptly end.
As usual, if you have ANY other questions about this, please contact us by using THIS FORM: http://www.mjmmagic.com/store/contact_us.html

So this year, I did something simple and creative.......which to me is more important than just spending money on something.
I ended up making an Origami Heart out of paper, and writing a nice little love letter inside. I then squirted a little cologne into it (like we used to do in elementary school) and folded it back up! It costs nothing, but requires you to actually MAKE something and put a little effort into it.
If you want to make one too for that special someone, here's the same video I used to make mine:

LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
Steve Dacri, a veteran magician whose "close-up" illusions could make foam balls appear in your clenched fist, died Friday after a long bout with colon cancer.
The Boston native moved to Las Vegas in 2003, after years of commuting from Los Angeles to work at Caesars Magical Empire, a bygone attraction that offered a rare stage for close-up magic on the Strip.
Dacri and his wife, Jan, worked for most of the decade to find a workable vehicle for a niche of magic that gave him 38 years in the trade. His close-up genre took root at Hollywood's Magic Castle nightclub and played best with audiences of 50 or less.
His was a sleight of hand utilizing small objects -- playing cards, handkerchiefs and the signature foam balls he called "Martians" -- rather than the large illusions that are the basis of most Las Vegas magic acts.
"When magic can happen in the audience member's hand ... that's the magic they remember," he noted in February of last year.
Dacri's post-Empire work in Las Vegas included shows at The Orleans, O'Shea's, the Imperial Palace and the Four Seasons at Mandalay Bay, where he offered a dinner show so exclusive it was $300 per ticket.
His last Las Vegas run was at the Las Vegas Hilton last year. The February opening was postponed by the discovery of a tumor and removal of a section of his colon. "I was sitting in the hospital going, 'Boy I'm so glad I have a show to look forward to,' " he recalled.
Ever the trouper, Dacri last summer submitted to a promotional stunt that involved a dunking in the Hilton's swimming pool to retrieve two playing cards.
Dacri also maintained the website and digital magazine VegasInsideTips.com.

Normally I don't like to hype a bunch of preorder items, but I have personally seen this one and it's going to be HUGE!
Imagine this. You take a regular metal nail. You hand it to the spectator to examine. They can FEEL that it's real. Now check this out.....NO SWITCHING! The nail begins to bend in the SPECTATOR'S HAND by your mental powers!
Well, not really by your mental powers, but the spectator will THINK that's the reason!
You can even do a follow up routine where the nail straightens back in their hand! WHOAA!
Never before have we seen a nail bending routing that:
a) didn't require a switch of some kind with a prebent nail, or
b) one that didn't require you to conceal some bending device, or
c) one that actually bends the nail in the spectators hand!
Like I said, I had a meeting with the supplier about this one, and they personally showed it to me! I'm really excited to carry it here at MJM Magic, and we ordered a bunch of them! If you preorder it with us using the link below, you WILL be guaranteed to get it the day they come out!
If we presell all of our reserved batch, the link will be dead, so if you still see the link being active, click on it and preorder because that means they're still some left!
We don't know the exact release date yet, but hopefully it won't be too far off. Either way, we will be first to get it and we look forward to shipping this one out!
