Hi everyone!   Many of you already know me (or at least know of my company)!   I just wanted to say that I am honored to be here, and to help contribute whatever I can to this wonderful forum.

My name is Jeff Mash, and I'm from Northern California.   I'm currently on the cusp of turning 42 years old.   Married for almost 15 years, and a father of two daughters.

My love for magic stretches back to when I was a little kid.   Reading Mark Wilson's complete course in magic book, and practicing with magic sets.   That is, of course, until one fateful night when my little brother sleep walked from his bed, and urinated all over my props.   That damn stream of yellow ammonia destroyed everything I had, and I didn't touch magic for decades afterwards.

True story.

But in 2004, it came back full circle.   I was working as a Software Engineer and Customer Service tech for a Silicon Valley company, making a fantastic salary, but like most people in the workforce, I was unhappy.   Long hours, horrendous commuting in traffic, and not able to spend enough time with family.

So in August 2004, I decided to take a chance and I started MJM Magic.   Back then, there weren't as many online magic stores around (only a handful of the current ones still exist).   However, my goal was not to overtake any store, nor to hurt any brick and mortar places.    My goal was to provide magic with the best possible service I could give, as well as spend more time with my family without being miserable working for someone else.

Fast forward to 2017, and MJM Magic is the top 7th magic company in the world......and we do it all with a small team and family owned service.   Whenever I travel, I ALWAYS make it a point to visit any local brick and mortar shops and make a purchase there, just to show my support for anyone who shares the same love that I have.

So thank you for 1) welcoming me into your forum and 2) for anyone who has made a purchase at MJM Magic.  It really means a lot.

So glad that you're here! I'm from the Bay Area (San Jose). I believe that I've spoken to you over the phone at one point.

Welcome to the forum! I look forward to getting to know you better.

Rudy

Crazy! That's my old hood. I went to Oak Grove (and Gunderson) and lived off of Snell.
I'm sure our paths must have crossed.

What a trip.

Hahaha, I too went to Oak Grove.  All four years.   Graduated in 1993.   It would be crazy if our paths crossed and we didn't know it.  I also went to Davis Jr. High before that.

Welcome Jeff! I've shopped at MJM. I bought some hard to find stuff at good prices. The communication was perfect and delivery was super speedy.

Hi Jeff

I just purchased some downloads - pretty painless process and very good prices.   I was looking at your shipping rates for physical objects and I wanted to say thanks for laying out a bunch of different options - some of which are actually pretty reasonable!  (Some TMF members may have noticed that I occasionally complain about the shipping charges when Canadians buy from US companies - they frequently far exceed the value of the purchase.)

Welcome to the forum.

Hi Robin - Thank you so much for your support and your order.   It's always nice when we see forum members stopping by and choosing MJM to fulfill their orders!

As for shipping, I wish it were even cheaper for Canadians.   The Post Office continues to raise prices every year like clockwork.  However, we do tend to insure ALL international packages, so if anything is ever lost or damaged, it's a no hassle process to resolve that for them.  Like you said, we do offer a wide range of options though, so we let you decide on what kind of shipping you prefer (standard, priority, etc).

And of course, since you purchased downloads, there is no shipping so you never have to worry about paying anything more than the cost of your product!

Thanks again for the verbal support and kind words about your experience with MJM!

It's a nasty habit for sure.    It could be worse though.   He could be dropping a deuce on it!   So thank God for small miracles, I suppose.
