Are there any consumer products that use magic or claim to use magic in their production or manufacture? What would they be? How would the
public feel about them?
My little sorceress in Runequest is in a weak cult that tries to do "power behind the throne" stuff. They have a magic cauldron with illusion powers; sight, smell, taste, texture. For diplomatic work, they make a big batch of oatmeal, and then have magic
users with restaurant experience manipulate the oatmeal to become rare fancy foods for guests.
They don't want anyone to know about it. They worry about what kind of disinformation/spin doctoring to do if the secret gets out. One reason to keep it secret is that any cliche player character would think an expensive magic item that has zero combat
power is foolish.
She is making her own magic item, bit by bit, that gives stat bonuses. If you are entering a tournement you could hire her for +4 strength, dexterity, size, and appearance. She really hopes she can do constitution some day. The fighter buying the service
will feel great. The opponents haven't found out about it yet.
