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!

Dallas and Co.

Human Skeleton, Hairball

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

Human Skeleton, Hairball

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

Dallas and Co. is a unique shop in central Illinois. You will recognize it instantly by the 15-foot-tall dinosaur busting through the back wall and the 10-foot-high skull on the roof.

Inside is a costume, novelty, and magic shop. Andy Dallas, the owner, has collected many unique items that are on display throughout the shop, including a 12-foot-tall animated King Kong, a real human skeleton in a late 19th century coffin, a human hairball, and many other fascinating objects.
