Sadly one of the best, Al's Magic Shop closed in 2004. The only one I can find nearby is Barry's:

Yes...Barry's Magic Shop. This is from their website.

"If you are in the Washington, D.C. area, please stop by and visit our magic shop at 11234 Georgia Avenue in Wheaton, Maryland."

You might want to contact IBM and SAM and FCM to see if any clubs are in your area. That will be a good way to share information up front. If you can not find a magic shop near you, stay with the internet.

You have some terrific resources in your area. Barry's Magic Shop recently moved to Rockville, MD. Their new store address is 5544 Nicholson Lane, Rockville, MD, 20852 and phone: (301) 933-0373. Barry is a great guy and should be most helpful. You also have a terrific options in north Baltimore with Denny & Lees Magic Studio. Both stores offer outstanding support and a regular schedule of top shelf lectures.

Barry's is the place to go.

Their new shop is HUGE and it is brightly lit with lots of marvelous books, DVD's and tricks tantalizingly displayed. The new magic theatre in the store is big as well. Plan to go there to see great lectures and shows!

The real magic is family!

I go to school in D.C. and Barry's is the way to go. Probably a larger selection than any magic store I have ever been in.

Thanks a lot again, I went to Barry's today and spent about 3 hours and I was like a kid at a candy store and they were all very helpful, I met Barry and he showed me a couple of tricks and I had a great time, I will be spending a lot more time there.

Great store and great people

I'm surprised only one person mentioned Dennys!! Shame shame:0)

Being a former employee of the Denny & Lee Studio-- I'd say go there. Soon to be the worlds largest magic shop; already is and has been, but needless to say... things are going to get a lot bigger here in the months to come. I'm not going to leak it here on the Café; out of respect for Denny- but trust me. Dennys has and always will be the mecca of professionalism in magic retail. We have two locations- one in Baltimore, MD (for about 15 years now)- and another in Las Vegas.

Many of the top working pros owe a lot to Denny- and numerous guys have gone on to be top names in magic. You want to learn the right way-- study there. I owe literally my whole decade and more of magic to him. He's gotten me around the world and more. If you want clowns, makeup, and the great balloons! Barrys is your ticket. You step one foot into Dennys-- you'll spend more than three hours! Largest selection of magic books worldwide! This is no hype or lie. I was their stockguy; amongst many other things; and got to spend a heck of a lot of time reading. Along with all the top quality merchandise. No cheap, knock-off items at all.

Just go, and see for yourself:0) Barrys is a great shop and hangout spot as well; not condoning that at all. Just take a peak once at the Denny & Lee Studio. You'll enjoy it- I know you will!

you'll be glad you did-
best regards,
Matt Tomasko

I hope the brick and mortar shops stay around for a long time....

Mrunge, Al's was a great place and a grand person, so was the yogi magic mart in Baltimore, where I'm from. Good to see someone so close there. Many fond memories of my magic youth.
