Supermarket Magic by Tommy Windsor

Make money performing at stores, malls and shopping centers with a one-man magic show.

If you are of average ability, this book reveals Tommy Windsor's exact plan for booking and performing a short, 15 to 25-minute magic act at stores in your area. The book tells you everything . . . how to book . . . how much to charge . . . how to play . . . sales gimmicks . . . the contract . . . and even reproduces all the ads and publicity the store can use. There are no ads for you to sell. With this, and one suitcase of magic, you can make $850+ per day, right near home, and still hold your regular job.

And, only in this revised and updated edition, you'll learn a powerful incentive that can overcome a store manager's reluctance to book you on the spot. Plus, an in-store bally that guarantees a nice crowd will be there, on time, before the show starts. This is an uncrowded field that is just waiting for you to take the opportunity and reap the rewards.

"I have been using the ads in [the book] for a sample, explaining that a magician in another area was making a big success in the supermarkets. The first place I went to snapped it up before I could get through talking. I sold them a three-day show." - Jay Vincent

"This is a practical, explicit, detailed plan and is well worth the price." - Lloyd E. Jones

"Valuable information. Highly recommended." - Paul Marcus

"Priceless material, worth many times the original cost to any magician interested. Every possible phase is well covered." - Sam Aaronson
