I'm just curious, but what kind of magic shops do you guys have around you? I have 2 (could say 3) but I don't like any of them. They are all magic shops/costume shops/joke shops/fun shop etc. Shop #1, well, isn't much of a shop anymore - they no longer have a magician to demo magic, and no more room for magic, so they barely carry anything more than some TT's and some flash paper Shop #2 is huge - but 90% of it is costumes. There is a small section of magic stuff and only on certain days do they have a magician demoing tricks. Sometimes they have lectures as well. The reason I don't like this place is because they are flat out rude. I was in there a week before Halloween and the manager told a customer she could try on a certain costume. Then, she yelled at the customer for trying it on because apparently she wasn't supposed to - the manager had messed up. The lady tried to tell the manager that she was given permission to try it on and the manager got in her face and said "Lady you are wrong. Do NOT talk to me like that or I will throw you out of here. This conversation is over!" and then she walked off. Shop #3 is pretty neat, but they don't have hardly anything. Everything they have is little stuff like change bags, plastic cups and balls, nickles to dimes, just little cheap tricks I guess you could say. And the guy that demo's the stuff isn't very knowledgeable. We ended up talking and I showed him the Biddle Trick. He had NEVER seen it and was FLOORED. Also, I would ask him what coin magic they had, and he would show me something with cards? He kept on doing this and I'm not sure why? Anyways, those are the magic shops near me! I'm curious about what is around everyone else! Hopefully some of you are more fortunate than I!
