It's sad that Joe doesn't work there anymore. I wonder why the new owners bought the business...they don't seem to be passionate about magic...

Unfortunately, that is the new reality. With the internet, it has become almost impossible for magic stores to stay in business. Online shops have much less overhead and offer lower prices to draw in their customers. Even large cities such as Los Angeles don't have that many brick & mortar stores anymore.

Good thing to know there is one in Vancouver and to know so many magicians around the area. I have trouble even buying silk or deck of cards.

For cards, there's Costco in Tinseltown. They sell 9 decks of bikes for $11.

A short trip across the sound to Victoria B.C. and you can visit Murray Hatfield's magic shop http://www.magictrick.com/store/

Murray has one of the biggest annual touring magic shows in Canada.


Murray's Trick and Joke Shop (formerly Tony's Trick and Joke Shop), in Victoria, BC, is closing as of August 25, 2013. However, Murray will continue to run the online store at http://www.magictrick.com

Update: Stocked up on a few items today and the shop owner (and his lady partner) has vastly improved his customer service skills and has become much more knowledgeable about magic and what the latest trend is. He is more confident, friendly, and easier to understand. In addition, the shop is stocked very neatly with an abundance of magic for both the novice and the full time pro, along with touristy-type items ie jokes/pranks, plus juggling/yoyo supplies, books, videos and more. He is quick to bring in new items too if he feels there is a demand for it. Warning, he is running a business.... and most likely doesn't prefer magicians hanging out talking shop/showing each other tricks etc - especially when its busy, as it was today! Check it out!

I have to agree. Quincey (the store owner) has stepped up his game. He's a sweet guy who's doing his best to run a business while dealing with magicians who are used to paying 20% less online.
Still no demos to speak of, but at least you can restock and have a look of the latest from Murphy's.

Quincey has treated me right. I called him from New Westminster one night because I was in need of a prop. He gracefully stayed around for me and told me how to get in after hours. Thank you Quincey.
