I reside in Sydney Australia and will be travelling to New York over the Christmas period and will be staying in Midtown Manhattan. I want a winter Christmas for once. Can anyone give me advice as to magic shops I should visit in New York. I am interested in Mikame or Viking magic.

Google both Tannens and Fantasma magic shops.They are just a few blocks from each other.Also look into Monday Night Magic.Great magic every Monday night.

Enjoy your stay...its a fun city.

Thanks Don. I will visit both magic shops. I have had a look at their websites and they have an extensive list of magic items.

David,
If you're getting into NYC by train, Fantasma is literally across the street from Penn Station. Magick Balay is behind the counter almost every day...and some days, you'll see David Roth just hanging out. Tannen's is just a short taxi ride away...and has great guys, like Rich Kameda, working there. Either place, you can't go wrong.

Thank you Steve. Looking forward to visiting both shops. We only have one actual magic shop in Sydney. At the moment I get my supplies from either Stevens Magic USA who are great and very helpful. Their delivery to Australia is excellent. The other supplier is Mehow Magic, who are an online Australian supplier and because they are only 15 minutes from my house, he allows me to pick up and saves me delivery. He is also excellent.

I will also be going to Las Vegas for new year and hope to see some magic shows.

I am now travelling to New York, Las Vegas and San Francisco from 20 December 2015 to 10 January 2016 and very interested in visiting Magic Shops in these cities. I have the details of Tannens and Fantasma magic shops in New York and Denny and Lee in Las Vegas. I am unable to find any magic shops in San Francisco (city area).

I am a collector of Mikame and Viking magic.

Any information would be helpful in making my USA visit magically enjoyable.

Just a tip on Denny and Lees shop this is not as close to the main strip as you may think and you will only be able to get there by driving. If you are in Vegas also be sure to visit the Gamblers General Store and Spinettis Gaming Supplies for a great choice of playing cards and books.
