It's like Magic

Once upon a time, at the end of the "block" on N. Santa Cruz Avenue (down past The Chart House but not quite so far as Forbes Mill Steak House) there was a marvelous magic shop where you could buy the coolest tricks for the cheapest amount. I loved getting "smoke" that would appear from my fingers. My father would buy card tricks, and my brother loved the silly tricks like whoopie cushions.

I was really sad when he retired. The owner didn't even sell off the business...he just shut it down. It was the coolest way to spent my allowance after school or on a weekend.

That was "The Ghastly Gallimaufry".

Another spot I spent a lot of time, looking at the Halloween masks and such. ;-)
