Hi I will be in San Diego next week. Does anyone know of any good magic stores there?

Thanks!

I believe all the magic shops in San Diego have closed. There was a magic shop in Escondido (30 minutes North) but it seems they have now closed as the web site and phone number are both no longer working.

There is one in Old Town Temecula which is about 50 minutes North on the Interstate 15. It is a popular spot for people shopping for antiques. I was there about nine months ago and they said I had just missed a David Regal lecture.

You may also want to check with the local IBM ring - I forget the # but Bob Ingalls was president last I was there. They meet in a place on University at about 42nd called "Jack's Place." It's owned by Jack White and houses a wonderful collection of vintage magic items.

The one in Temecula is called "The Trick Shop."

If you make it up towards Disneyland, there are two shops in Orange County.

One is Best Magic (that's where I work sometimes.) It's located at the SW corner of Magnolia and Orange in Anaheim. The address is:

625 S Magnolia Av
Anaheim, CA 92804

The other shop is Ken Sands place - Magic Galore and More. It's located in a bowling alley in Westminster. I can only tell you good things about Ken and his place. Unfortunately, I can't lay my hands on the address quickly.

If this area is of interest, there is more around here and I'd be happy to get you more info.

Not a magic shop, but I think you can still catch JC Wagner at the Little Club on Saturday afternoons:
