I've been to the Cuckoos Nest in Pittsburgh, Mistdirections in SF (great store), there used to be a very good store in Boston (someone else can supply the name). Living in New York, Tannen's is there but I've always been disappointed in their stock of books and I'm not thrilled with the new location.

I will go with two places.

1)Tannen's magic in NY. The myth and the fact you get good service. I go there twice a year when I am in New York for business.

2) Magie Spectram in Montreal. My hometown store where I can order what I want.

Steve Johnson's Grand Illusions Magic Shop near Sacramento California.

http://www.grandillusions.com
7704 Fair Oaks Boulevard
Carmichael, CA 95608-1706
(916) 944-4708

Just a small shop but a big hub for Magic and Lectures by a host of excellent Magicians. Steve and his parents Leeora and Don make every one welcome. Don Johnson's Home made cookies at the lectures don't hurt either.

Williams Magic in Tucson is one of the finest in the country. Great selection and the Williams family are the nicest people you will ever meet.

I was just in Sedona and didn't think about Williams Magic. Rats.

That isn't a brick and mortar magic shop. So really doesn't fit. It's an online shop but we are all thinking of actual buildings that you can go into browse and buy from while there.

As to why they aren't liked that much do some searching on the Café and you will know.

Penugin is one of reasons why there are so few brick and mortar shops left.

Magic Spectram in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Like slim23 said, it's really good and you can order almost anything for if they don't have it.
