To all my terrific customers!
Just got this note from our pal David Oliver. I am asking every one of you as a favor to one who has always been a friend and mentor to all magicians, Denny Haney, to please do what you can to help one of the few truly great magic stores in this country.
From David Oliver:
I have known Denny Haney, of Denny & Lee’s Magic Studio in Baltimore for over twenty-five years. Denny is one of the most knowledgable magicians I have ever known, as well as being one of the most giving. He always helps young magicians starting out, and older magicians looking for information or tips. His background in magic is astounding, and he is one of the few who is universally respected in the industry. He’s just a GREAT guy. He’s run into a bit of financial trouble, and can use the help of every magician out there. This would be a travesty for all of magic if his remaining place had to close. He’s not looking for a hand-out. But any and all purchases TODAY would help him to avoid certain closure. Please read below, and do what you can, no matter how small. And please repost to any and all of the magic FB pages you belong to. Let’s help one of our own! Thanks! – DO
This. From my friend, Rick Maue.
MAGICIANS & MENTALISTS: Please take a minute to read the following:
One of the best magic shops on the planet is facing an immediate emergency…and you can help. Denny Haney, of Denny & Lee’s, has spent the past few months reorganizing and downsizing (including shutting down his Las Vegas location). He has been able to basically get even with his creditors. But, in the process of clearing up just about all of his bills, he has gotten behind on his rent. In short, he has handled more than 50% of the rent situation, but he just got word this morning that he has to come up with $10,000 in three days, otherwise he will be evicted.
Please understand, Denny has made great strides in streamlining the business. With almost no remaining bills, and all of his stock paid for, EVERY sale is 100% profit. That said, I am asking every magician and mentalist I know to buy something from Denny TODAY (or tomorrow) in order to give him a real chance at making his recent restructuring efforts pay off.
In short, through the years, Denny has helped too many magicians and mentalists to count. If he was forced to close, it would not only be a tragedy for him, but it would also be tragedy for our art form. So, please, buy something from www.dennymagic.com today.
Finally, PLEASE share this post Facebook and/or send it out through any mailing lists you may have.
Thanks so very much.
Thanks for doing business with us.
