Good evening/morning/afternoon everyone! I just got back from Cincinnati. This week was Spring Break for me so my I drove to Ohio with my parents (sister is at college) to visit the USPCC. This might not excite some of you, but for a kid from southern Indiana where you can only buy Bicycles this was a freaking dream come true. I took some pictures of what I bought. I though I would share them with everyone. The pictures are uploading now but I thought I would go ahead and post. After I checked out (42 decks for $56.50) my mom bought a few decorative decks she got for about 8 cents a deck. She does art stuff and she bought some cards to cut up and use. She also got some Bees and a book of card game rules for my grandparents. My mom told me the lady working there gave her a bag full of stuff and said "Give this to your son when you get in the car to leave." She gave me the bag and in it was 12 different decks that she just threw in for free. They weren't super rare or anything, but it was really nice of her to give them to me. After the USPCC we visited the two magic shops in the area, Haines House of Cards and The Magic Shop. At The Magic Shop I got The Card Magic of LePaul. The guy running the shop was really nice. He was really happy that I was buying a book instead of a DVD, it was pretty funny. He said "Well thank God that you read." a bunch of times. I told him I do mostly card magic and he said the three books every card magician should have are The Royal Road, Expert at the Card Table, and Expert Card Technique. He was a really nice guy and he wasn't afraid to poke fun at himself. He said "I specialize in the Stripper deck and the Svengali deck...mostly because I'm lazy. I'm not even going to mention how old I am." All in all, it was a really fun day trip. We got to Ohio Tuesday night and stayed in a really nice hotel my dad got on PriceLine for really cheap (completely unrelated to the story but I thought I would share). I think everyone should make at least one trip to the USPCC in their life. Kind of like a hajj. Well now that my essay is finished I'll just wait for the pictures to finish uploading and post 'em.
