I visited his shop a few times in the 1980's. Ted was a very nice guy, and had a somewhat twisted sense of humor to boot! He was a dealer at Magi-Fest for many years, too. Always cut great deals at the convention for his customers. He's sadly missed.

I remember his shop fondly as well, I think his wife gave music lessons in the back (I remember the piano back there) and the shop was so unique in design, almost like walking through a house with several rooms back to back. He had some really unique and collectible items.

I do not think that Toledo has a magic shop anymore, if so I would love to visit there since it is close and I travel alot. I know when traveling the turnpike there are a couple in the Cleveland/Lorain area to the East (not counting Cedar Point of course) and 1 in Wauseon Ohio to the West.

I was lucky to have worked with Ted at his shop. Met many great magicians and wonderful people there.
Yes there is still a small brick and mortar shop in Toledo.
Glass City Magic and you can find info online for the address and phone number.
The owner of Glass City, Dennise Weigle was also a friend and employee of Ted Carrothers.

Yes! When I started booking programs for School Assembly Service (Chicago)in Ohio, I met Ted. We became very good friends. He even installed an electric outlet in his parking lot so that I could hook up my motor home overnight! Whenever I was in the northwest corner of Ohio on a weekend, I would drive in to Toledo.
Ted always had a pot of coffee on! The "backroom" was a great gathering spot. I think it was one of the last of the "olde tyme" shops.
I was booking Ohio in September 1980 when my father died. I drove into Toledo, parked my van in Ted's "side yard", and Ted drove me to the Detroit airport. --and picked me up the following week when I returned. He was a real friend.
I met Andy Portala at Ted's. We've been friends for 30 years!
Many times when I was driving through without my motor home, Ted would invite me to be his house guest.
(His wife was not only a fine musician, she was also an excellent cook!
