Chris Cross has been dealing in Second-hand Vintage Magic Props, Books & Apparatus for the past few years and since the COVID-19 Global Pandemic has heavily impacted his bookings and public shows, he has decided to concentrate on selling unique magical items to performers and collectors all over the World! 

During Lockdown Chris Cross purchased The Card Collection and became the owner of the entire business (and all stock) and is now officially the proud owner of one of the longest running Magic Dealerships in the Country!

Chris will continue to stock a lot of what The Card Collection has always stocked (Decks, gimmicked cards, roughing fluid, Magician's accessories, Etc.) However, the business will branch off into 3 sections now under the new name “The House of the Enchanted Rabbit Magic Supplies” (or “Enchanted Rabbit” for short!)

The 3 PRIMARY sections will be:

- Enchanted Rabbit EXCLUSIVES

- The Card Collection Range

-  The Vintage Magic Emporium


We will continue to trade at conventions once the pandemic has disappeared and we look forward to meeting all of our customers in person! 

Whilst it will take a few months to get the stock all organised and this website up and running properly, for the time being, Please LIKE our page and if there’s any supplies you need or anything you’d like to say to Chris Cross, then don’t hesitate to get in touch! Here:


“The Card Collection” business was established in 1969 by Clive Leewarden and has been loyally serving magicians for 52 years... you may well have stopped by their stand at a convention and purchased some of their famous gaff cards, as well as collectors decks, gaff coins, sponge balls, dice and all sorts of accessories, tricks and gimmicks!

Clive, along with his wife, Anne, have been attending magic conventions around the U.K. since the 1960’s up until 3 years ago, when Paul McCaig took the wheel for the last couple of years, after Clive retired. The stall was last trading just before COVID-19 at Blackpool 2019...

Here’s to the next 52 years of serving the magic community - we look forward to seeing you at a convention very soon!
