About Hard To Find Magic

Hard To Find Magic

Welcome to Hard To Find Magic

Are you looking to add to your collection, replace a hard to find piece of apparatus from your act, or just want some unique magic from days gone by? My goal is to provide a source for your magic needs and wants. I’m Mike Rose and I have been buying magic to use in my shows for nearly 50 years. Like many magicians I often bought a piece of apparatus intending to use it but ended up storing it away (often forgetting I even had it!). It’s time to thin the herd! I plan to add items to this website frequently and often (did I mention I have a LOT of magic?!). Please take a moment to send me your name and email address and I’ll send you an email whenever new items are added to the website. Your information will never be sold or traded to any other entity, your privacy is safe with me (as are the magic secrets you’ll be buying!).


Click it and it is yours!

It should not be necessary to say so but I’m going to say it anyway. This is not an auction site. Each item has it’s own "Add To Cart" button and when you click that button the item is put in your Shopping Cart. Then you simply checkout selecting either the PayPal or secure credit card option and the item is yours. There are no pesky “Buyer’s Fees” like auction sites. Heck, I even pay the shipping in the USA. So that amount you see listed for each item is the full amount you pay, period (unless you are located outside the USA, then get in touch and I’ll quote you shipping).

Say “goodbye” to buyer’s fees and “hello” to Hard to Find Magic. Nice to meet you!

“Over the years, I have purchased several choice items for the Cups and Balls Museum from Mike Rose. I’ve never gotten a bad piece of apparatus from him.”

Jerry Dunn


“Hard To Find Magic is a welcome addition to the roster of quality magic dealers. The hard-to-find Pressley Guitar CSB set I bought is flawless and was priced fairly. Mike even pays the shipping. Highly recommended.”
