[Second Hand]

In this subtopic, you will find unique pieces from my own collection that I have decided to sell, or one-of-a-kind memorabilia and objects related to magic that have fallen into my hands and that need a good home.

If you want to know more about an object or if you have some questions which are not answered by the description please contact me. And if you think any of the items are priced unreasonably then feel free to send me a counteroffer and negotiate with me.
