I.B.M. British Ring Convention 2023
07–10 September 2023
Although not attending as a trade, we will have an informal (delegate) presence at this year’s convention in Eastbourne (UK).
If anyone attending would like to save on the cost of postage for any imminent orders, please get in touch; we should be able to arrange a suitable rendezvous with our man Paul, who has kindly offered to take orders with him.
If this is of interest, give us a shout BEFORE placing your order and we’ll make sure you don’t get charged for the postage!
We will need to cut this offer off a few days before the convention of course, to enable packing and travel time; last day for these orders will be Monday 4th September 2023.
One of our small team working on the project to bring Supreme products back to the market is “magician & maker of things” Frank E Haschka.
Frank has been looking after props in the current Supreme custodian’s private collection for many years, and more recently been drafted in to create and manage this website; not to mention take all the photographs of our wares.
Although Frank has been with us for quite some time, it’s only recently that we’ve been able to get him over to the Supreme warehouse for a proper look at the extent of the project…
Here’s what he had to say:
A very rare privilege indeed…
As one of the very few invited behind the doors of a mythical warehouse – and the first actual magician – I was absolutely blown away by what met my eyes as the shutters went up.
I’ve been working closely with the keyholder for quite some time on a project to bring this massive collection to market, yet even after all this time have only just set foot into the treasure trove.
It’s breathtaking. Absolutely breathtaking.
This first image shows the racks on initial entry. There are just under eight hundred boxes on these racks alone; if you’re counting, it’s two deep. Each box may hold one piece of magic, a part of one, or perhaps a hundred small products.
There are a lot more racks, on two floors. There are tens of thousands of boxes here, with pristine items within them that have been carefully stored for decades and are now being organised, catalogued, and gradually made available again to the magical world.
I repeat… Tens. Of. Thousands.
Oh, and this isn’t the only warehouse!
As you can see, this is a project that may last a little while yet!
