As a kid, when I first developed an interest in Magic, I lived in a small mountain town in Colorado. I was lucky as I got to spend a few weeks every summer with my Grandparents in the 'big' city of Denver, Colorado. Over time I found two "good" magic stores where I could shop for magic tricks, usually the owners would demonstrate the tricks, it was a boys dream come true. For many years, I saved every dime I could earn, shoveling snow, gathering pop bottles, washing dishes, etc. for my summer trip to Denver. Those early years got me hooked on magic and going to magic stores and shows. As I got back into magic a few years ago, I naturally began to search for magic stores in my area. I only found one, it is located in Wichita, Kansas. They put out a good catalog and have an online store and I have purchased a few tricks and props from them. Recently, I traveled down to visit the store on a Saturday. Their website indicated they were open on Saturday at 1pm. I called to make sure, but no one answered. I decided to go to the store anyway. They were closed. Obviously, Magic Stores are slowly disappearing do to internet pressure. Yet I still find a need to visually inspect, touch and hold a trick or prop before I spend money for it, especially those that are fairly expensive. As many have mentioned on this website, we all have a drawer full of tricks that we wish we had not purchased. Seeing them, in most cases, would have avoided this waste of money for me. Luckily, I am going to Las Vegas and I wonder if anyone of you can tell me where I can find a true magic store. The internet indicates that in Vegas there are lots of 'magic stores', but I fear they are more 'trash and trinkets' than true Magic Stores! I hate going into a magic store that has one wall of magic and the rest is T & T! Can any one recommend a store in Las Vegas that is all about MAGIC?
