Best Magic Shop - 2001
House of Magic
As with every eerie feat of prestidigitation, there's more to House of Magic than meets the eye. It may look like a particularly schlocky gag shop dripping with rubber hamburgers and joy buzzers, but look closer and you'll behold a fine selection of paraphernalia for the professional magician, including sleight-of-hand apparatuses and the implements for yet grander illusions. How-to books and instructional videos are available for the beginner, and in addition to ventriloquists' dummies and multicolored handkerchiefs you'll find a case full of handsomely carved antique magic tricks a-dazzle with mystery.
