    Suggestions to buy magic related stuff from Amazon

    Magic Shops in utah????

    I agree, there is nothing like going in and seeing and touching the items you are considering to buy. Also, being able to talk to someone who can demonstrate the product and answer questions. I too miss this...but time moves forward! I fear that younger generations will have no idea how to...

    Sounds like fun, but very challenging. I recall when I was 15, walking around a room of mostly 17 year old girls would of been enjoyable but very stressful for me... On top of that doing that for 1-2 hrs. is a long time with only 2-3 routines, unless the routines are multiple tricks that...
