Lifelong Magic Aficionado & Magic Book Enthusiast

Firstly and most importantly, I love what I do!

I’ve been interested in magic, predominantly card magic, gambling exposes and card cheating from a young age. I was born in London, England and remember spending many fond hours at Davenport’s Magic Shop in Charing Cross. Two of my first books were well-worn copies of “Expert at the Card Table” and “Cardshark” by Darwin Ortiz.

Fast forward a few years after a lengthy spot as a professional chef and a freelance antique book dealer, I met my wife and subsequently moved to America. There, I formally launched a small business focused on helping people consign antique books at auction.

Regency Antique Books is a small family-run business based in Phoenix, Arizona. I am the owner, Chris, and my wife Holly is a design and marketing professional.

Magic has always been part of my life in one way or another – I’ve never completely given it up. After spending the last five years expanding my antique book dealership, I’ve decided to use this companion website to pair two great loves of mine – the art of magic and the love of books.

I noticed a gap in the market for a business that offers customers a professional eBay consignment service for selling magic or gambling related collections specifically. You can entrust us with your magic liquidation needs and have confidence that our focus is to honor and pass on this beloved art form by selling your items to the next generation of budding magicians or collectors.

When you consign with us, you’ll receive a professional service from start to finish. With my knowledge and contacts in this field along with the professional tools and skills on tap at Regency Antique Books, we can guarantee you a “magical” experience (sorry, couldn’t resist!)

We offer very competitive rates and charge a flat 30%. Unlike other consignment services, this rate includes all fees (10% eBay fees + a 2.9% PayPal fee), so there are no surprises. Just a good return on your items. 

We welcome all our new customers and look forward to working with you!
