ABOUT CURIOUS PIECES

I’m Simon, the owner of Curious Pieces. I’ve been involved with magic since I was a child (I’m almost 50 now) and I love creating bizarre and storytelling pieces of magic apparatus. Curious Pieces is a labour of love and I doubt it’ll ever be the sort of shop where you can buy tons of apparatus. In fact most of what I make is a one-off although there may be one or two pieces where I have created a few versions. That means you are almost guaranteed to have something your audience hasn’t seen before.

I use a lot of vintage stuff and antiques to create my apparatus and many of the electronic pieces I sell, incorporate apparatus from other creators.

I don’t sell anything that isn’t in stock so there wont be long delays before your oder gets shipped. I do operate from Cape Town at the tip of Africa so shipping can take a while depending on whether you choose regular mail or courier. Everything is expensive to post from here so most of the shipping is heavily subsidised by me.
