CHRIS CROSS & THE ENCHANTED RABBIT
Chris Cross is The Great Magician of the North and has performed his Magic, Contortion & Escapology Acts Worldwide for many Celebrities, Corporates, VIP's and Royalty.
Chris has been dealing in Second-hand Vintage Magic Props, Books & Apparatus for the past few years. However, since the COVID-19 Global Pandemic and its heavy impact on the LIVE Entertainment Industry, he decided to concentrate on selling unique magical items to professional performers, hobbyists and collectors all over the Globe!
Over the past 12 months, Chris Cross has purchased the remaining stock of The Card Collection dealership, as well as Derek Lever's personal magic collection and Taurus Magic Supplies - along with all associated rights to the Jack Hughes World of Magic, Ken De Courcy's Creations and others. Combined with his already existing used magic for sale, this has taken THE ENCHANTED RABBIT from strength to strength, it is now THE LARGEST Used Magic Dealership in the UK...
We've sold our items to many UK touring circus's and shows, Television (Apple TV & Channel 4) and also sold to celebrities and famous names in magic - including DYNAMO, The Twins FX, Pete Turner, Andy Nyman and other stars of Magic. In the past, Taurus Magic and The Card Collection also sold regularly to Tommy Cooper, Ali Bongo, Patrick Page and David Nixon - to name a few!
We are primarily an online business, but we do look forward to meeting you all in person at conventions or at our little shop, located in High Spen, Tyne & Wear. 15mins from Newcastle-upon-Tyne city centre or 15mins from The Metrocentre. Open most Tuesday, email us if you're planning to visit.

TAURUS MAGIC SUPPLIES
Derek Lever and his wife Anne ran the largest used magic dealership in the World, until the American market overtook them. They were certainly the largest in the UK. Derek also was the organiser of the famous Blackpool Magic Convention. They also sold exclusive brand new items under the dealer name "Taurus Magic Supplies".
In Spring 2021, Cross purchased the remaining stock of Taurus, all of the used magic they had and also all rights to their tricks and stock. This included the Jack Hughes World of Magic books, props and more.
Taurus Magic has now been merged under the Enchanted Rabbit banner and has helped to grow ER into the largest used magic dealership in the UK today.
THE CARD COLLECTION
“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!
