Human Skeleton, Hairball, Magic Shop

My sister and I went in, and got to chat with magician and store owner Andy. We met him as we asked about the coffin in the store. The coffin and King Kong are easy to spot when looking up.

Andy took us upstairs to where part of his tour happens, and talked about his life as a magician and collector of pinball machines. He let us play with several of them and talked about how he acquired some of the amazing things in his store. It was a very neat experience!

Human Skeleton, Hairball

Dallas & Co. is more Halloween/costume shop than magic, and the magic is by appointment! Still worth a stop!

Amazing place! Ask for Andy (Dallas)! He's the nicest guy and has been doing magic all over the world for 40+ years...
