I LOVE MAGIC ETC.! They have SO many options for costume parties! If they dont have what youre looking for (white disco boots in a size 6), they will point you where to go! Super friendly and super helpful!
BEST PLACE TO GO FOR MAGIC IN AREA – I had bought a trick and was shown how to get much more out of the gimmick that came with it and actually getting three tricks for the price of one. Very few places will go that extra mile for customer satification.
Good cross section of supplies - Great selection of theatric props & costumes – In a day and age where brick and mortar shops are harder to find - this one is a jem. While there is a limited amount of stock, they have the forethought to provide additional theatric resources other magic shops don't provide. These additional bread and butter items have allowed them to be in business for almost 20 years. While it is true there are better days to go for magic demonstration, as not all of customer service are magicians. As with everything - an educated consumer knows what they are looking for. If you have every purchased magic props, you will at one time or another be disappointed with deep buyers remorse. If you are new to magic this can be more costly if you only purchase from online venues.
For those that know any magic history from the local DFW area - you will be interested to know that a few of the counters in the Magic area are from the old Jeffreys/Douglas Magicland from Dallas. Particularly the counter that is at the register. Mark Wilson among many other greats demo'ed magic on this counter. The shop is just west of downtown Ft Worth - off of Hwy 30 - exit N Forest Park blvd - N/E corner of the intersection.
The bottom line is this - there are hot and cold days in any shop. If you every enjoyed going to any actual magic shop, then it is a good idea to support it. If you think it is an era past its prime, then online eccomerce is made for you - cold and impersonable.
Your best bet for demonstrations, and deals is every 2nd Saturday Sale (9am) of each month. There are specials that are demonstrated by usually no less than 4 talented magicians. As a side note - I am in no way associated with this store, but have been a long time - very satisfied - customer.
Awesome – I took my son to Magic Etc. so he could look at some magic tricks. The magician there was so good that i ended up wanting tricks myself. Oh, I also spent more than I wanted, but it was way worth it. They have so much to look at there that I highly recommend anyone to go visit this store.
Bad place for magic. Terrible customer service. – If you are looking for magic, order online before visiting Magic etc. Went there today 7/3/2007 and had a terrible experience. I had spend several hundred dollars on several previous trips. Today the staff was absolutely not interetested in selling the magic. Have no idea why. Would not demo the tricks or even dicsuss pricing. Was all together wierd. I think thier thing is costumes now and are not interested in supporting magicians. I will be ordering from Williams magic or Barry's magic from now on.
Great place on the west side of the Metroplex – This is a terrific shop, staffed with people who know what they are doing. If you are in need of theatrical equipment, they have it! If you need magical supplies, they have it! If you need it, they pretty much have it!
This is a great resource -- do yourself a favor and visit them soon! You'll find things you didn't even know you needed.
