There are no magic shops close to where I live so I have always ordered online. Vanishing Inc was my first shop and is still my go to store. I ordered Charming Chinese Challenge after seeing Joshua Jay lecture 9 years ago.

Al's Magic Shop, Washington D.C.

I know Al has passed, but I don't know if it's still there.

Bought a few select props, and several books on kids magic, for my first show at a one-time visit to Tannen's in NYC. That started my career in 1980.

But after that, I discovered Chinatown Magic in nearby New Milford, CT. Owner, Keith Breen, was always happy to show me something new at each visit.

Mine was Barry's Magic Shop here in Maryland.

Sadly, closed like so many others.

I also loved Denny and Lee's. Denny passed away, so it is also closed.

Magic Warehouse is still open here in Maryland....

My first "magic shop" was "Pappnase" in Munich near to the "Sendlinger Tor". They sell primary costumes and juggling stuff, but there I get my first TT including a short demonstration.
But my actually "first magic shop moment" this year when I was viting Nuermberg: "Nürnberger Zauberladen" where Guy Peters had a real plenty of time for me showing me amazing stuff and had plenty to tell.

My first trip to a magic shop was Romig magic in Ferndale Michigan. They were still in the upstairs shop at the time and we went so my mother could buy a few tricks to get my brother to do at a family member birthday party. He never did the tricks as I recall but it spurred on a life long enjoyment of magic for me. At the time I had been bitten by the ventriloquism bug and they had a couple full size vent figures on the shelf, it was the first time ever seeing a "professional" vent figure. I would make many trips back there over the years, even more once I could drive. I also recall going to Fox Fun & Magic owned by Roy Kissel. My first visit with Roy was to see a vent figure and when I commented that I felt the cheeks were quite red he very gruffly said, "well what are you going to do with it? It has to be seen from stage!" As a young wanna be ventriloquist I was a bit afraid of how he had replied so gruffly and we left. I would later return to buy magic from him and he was not as harsh in tone, but like others have said, he was direct, and even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear, he told you how he felt about it. Those were the days.
