1. Trick Shop Magic
2. Penguin
3. Hocus Pocus

And sometimes I will buy direct from the creator, like Sankey or Mike powers in the past.

For those who are interested…

Giving one point to each company each time it was mentioned, here are the 5 most popular places that Magic Café folks have bought their magic in the past 5 years.

#1 Hocus Pocus
#2 Magic Café
#3 MJM
#4 Denny & Lee
#5 Magic Warehouse (Tie)
#5 Penguin (Tie)

Thus proving… I have too much time on my hands.

It all depends what I'm looking for. I always stop by the Café first to see if anyone here has it for sale.

If no one has it here and I know who created it I go direct to them. These include Losander and Creative Magic. Both gave me great service.

After that I'll do a Google search for what I want and see who's got it going cheapest.

I don't support any one particular store. Although there are places I won't shop.

People I've used more than once in the past and would use again include:

Alakazam UK
Penguin

International Magic

First and foremost, I will always buy at a local magic shop:

1) Barry's Magic Shop - Rockville, MD
2) Denny and Lee's - Baltimore, MD
3) Fantasma - New York, NY

Then as a last resort ... only if I can't find what I'm looking for at the local store AND if it can not be ordered by the local store AND if I really, really need it ... then I order online.

1) Theory11
2) Ellusionist

I have nothing against the online shops but I will always support the local brick and mortar shops first. We have lost too many good stores (e.g. Al's Magic Shop - DC).

The Magic Warehouse- I normally order online eventhough they are in driving distance. The shipping is low enough that it saves me more money than driving there and I almost always have it next day.

C'mon guys! Support the brick and Mortar shops while they still exist. Unless, of course the prices are WAY out of line. I mean business IS business...

Hocus Pocus or the actual manufacturer/creator of the effect, like Porper, Lassen, Craig Fillicetti, Wellington Enterprises, etc.
