Topic: Please recommend a magic store in Toronto
Message: Posted by: perlimpinpin (Apr 3, 2008 06:33PM)
Hi

I'm from abroad and will be visiting Toronto starting Saturday for a few days. I'd like to go to a magic shop and maybe buy a few items, but I am not sure what the 'best one' might be.

I would prefer a place where I can browse (esepcially books) and where they have not only the newest books, DVDs, close-up items but also some oldies (and why not rarities ?) - maybe a bit like the old Hank Lee shop in Boston or like Tannen's used to be.

Could someone give me a recommendation ?

Best regards
Daniel

The Browser's Den of Magic. Best magic store anywhere. SW corner of Bathurst & Eglinton, just east of Eglinton West Subway station:

Both places are very good. At Browsers, [b]every[/b] Saturday, [b]all[/b] day, there are people sharing magic at the card table.

Good choice... Den rules!

The Den and Morrissey's are both great to deal with in their own unique ways.
I believe Morrissey's is the largest brick and mortar magic store in the world.

Morrissey's is FAR better.

I couldn't disagree more. So perhaps a good idea to visit both shops Daniel.

When I'm in TO I like to visit the Browser's Den.

... Morrissey's is good too. But I find it hard to get to.

I live and work in GTA, and has been both. You may find the price and the stuff they carry slightly different, but both are pretty good. Since I am driving, I personally prefer to go to Morrissey more JUST because the parking is free, where the Den is more convenient to public-commuters since there is a parking fee for the plaza where the Den is at, unless you get a stamp from a shop then you can get half hour free.

But since they are geographically close to each other, about 1 to 2 blocks away, you can visit both pretty easily. Which I did a lot just for fun.

Browsers Rocks... I used to go to Morrisseys until one day I brought some friends and I asked the son to demo a trick and he flipped out on me for no reason... then we went to browsers and blew 300 bucks each on pretty much packet tricks...
