Does anyone remember this shop? It's where it all started for me when I was living down there around 1983. A couple of high school buddies and I were looking for something to do and we decided on a lark to head to "lovely" downtown Clearwater where this shop was located in an old historical Victorian house, perfect setting for a magic shop! I already had an interest in magic and I recall the guy in the Shop, Bob something or other, had that classic magician look with the handlebar moustache and all. I still remember buying Color Monte, Sponge balls and maybe one other thing. He demonstrated Hotrod which I thought was cool but I didn't buy. A little while later the shop moved to a far less impressive store front location where I would hang out every now and then. Unfortunately it closed down a few years later and as far as I know there hasn't been another brick and mortar shop in Clearwater. There was Martinelz in St Pete but that also went by the wayside eventually, never made it to that one. Good times but geez it feels like a lifetime ago!

Glenn,

Only shops around the area now are The Magic Emporium in Tampa and Merlin’s Magic Shop in New Port Richey.
