Tuesday April 2 Meeting – Our Annual Flea Market and Auction

“Positively, unquestionably the largest and finest such event in Northern California. One that should not be missed by any practitioner of the conjuring art.”

Don’t miss this year’s Flea Market and Auction! It will be on Tuesday, April 2rd. It is always the biggest in the San Francisco Bay Area! Doors open at 5:00 PM for sellers, 5:30 PM for buyers, and the auction starts at 8:00 PM. $15 for a seller’s table and $10 for OMC members. See you there!

Sellers: Remember to bring change, $1 and $5 bills. Also, bags for buyers to take home their purchases and price stickers.

Buyers: You should also bring change as well, $1 and $5 bills. Remember that you cannot pay for auction purchases with credit or debit cards. The Oakland Magic Circle has no way to process card transactions. Some flea market sellers accept credit cards, but most do not.

Apparatus night. We’ve had apparatus magic night before. It means magic using magic apparatus rather than sleight of hand or mind reading.  Bring something. It will be open to everyone. This will not be a lecture.  You can perform, talk about the history, tell of the routine, patter or your improvements, etc.

Also, it is nomination night for officers of the OMC for 2019 .
