Craft Store Conjuring by Dave Arch

In the absence of a brick-and-mortar magic store in your area, you no doubt already have discovered the inspirational riches for the magician that exist within the walls of a Hobby Lobby.

From 2019 to 2023 Dave Arch authored a column in the IBM's Linking Ring magazine sharing one of his ideas each month. This ebook is now a compilation of those columns as well as enough extras to bring the total to 90+ different ideas from nearly every section of the store and every magic genre.

Sooo…disappointing. Mostly just feels like a walk though Hobby Lobby or Michael’s. I don’t need this book to do that and see all the potential. What I would like is how to go beyond these initial thoughts I’m self would have to fully fleshed out tricks. This book does not provide this, despite a long list of potential. I would have given it one star, but sometimes the author does make a real suggestion. However, that is rare and nothing special.
