Quicker than the Eye is the online shop for Potter & Potter Auctions. We sell vintage magic memorabilia, used and collectible magic props, stone lithographs and vintage posters, antiquarian books, and virtually anything else related to magic and its history - as well as collectibles related to magic's allied arts - playing cards, gambling, fortune telling, circus and more.
The shop was founded in 2017 when we realized there was no sizable online store that offered this kind of merchandise - anywhere - that many items are not really "auction worthy," and that our significant inventory wasn't going to sell itself!
Since then, we've grown the shop into the largest repository on the web in the category. And we update it weekly with objects that simply can't be found anywhere else. From ephemera and apparatus, to antiquarian books, photographs and posters, Quicker than the Eye (or QTTE, as we call it) has become a go-to source for the odd, unusual, out-of-print, and collectible.
Miki joined the team in 2019 and handles all day-to-day operations in the shop, from cataloging to customer service to photography, and more. Though she’s not a magician, she enjoys discovering all things magical and odd in the QTTE office.
New items are added to the site weekly, usually on Thursday, and we also maintain an ever-growing inventory of tens of thousands (yes, you read that right!) uncataloged items in our warehouse. Don't see what you want? Feel free to contact us with any special requests or inquiries.
Thanks for stopping by!
