Topic: Magic Shop in Southern California
Message: Posted by: jackofspades11 (May 1, 2011 12:05PM)
I know this forum is for card tricks and so on, but I didn't know where else to post this question... Does anyone know of any good magic shops in the Southern California area? Preferably as close as ocean-side as possible.
Thanks,
Jack

In Westminister, there's a magic shop called Ken Sand's Magic Galore and more that I frequent. It's semi-close, maybe an hour up the 5 north from oceanside?

That's right: about 60 miles.

Maybe two hours when traffic's bad.

[i]Brad Burt[/i]'s shop in Santee (Northeast of San Diego) is a bit closer: about 45 miles from Oceanside.

There's "3 Generations of Magic" in Vista/San Marcos, off of I78 (around 10 miles from Oceanside):

3 Generations of Magic
741-B Olive Ave
Vista, Ca 92083

Website: http://www.3generationsofmagic.com/

I like them a lot; I've bought lots of books there.

The Magic Apple in Studio City.
It is worth the drive.
Or...if you ever find yourself in the LA area.

Brad Burt's is not really a "shop" anymore. I believe that is his house that he sells magic from. Be sure to call him to make sure he is home before you head over there.
