About Us

Magic Methods was founded in Ohio in 1969 by Mr. Jerry Mentzer. Jerry transferred to Greenville, SC in the early 1970's to continue his career as a mechanical engineer with Union Carbide. The Magic Methods business was acquired by Eddy Wade in 2014 and moved from it's Greenville, SC location to it's current home of Belmont, NC in 2016. 

Jerry Mentzer was Eddy's friend & mentor during Eddy's formidable years in the Art of Magic. Jerry taught Eddy many of the routines and effects he still performs today. To give Eddy a way to earn a bit of spending money, during his young years of growing up, Jerry allowed Eddy to help manufactoure and package many of the effects Magic Methods sold through (in the 1970's & '80's) an actual printed catalog. Each summer, Eddy attended several annual magic conventions with Jerry, helping him set-up the dealer display and demonstrating the items for sale.
