Centre de Recherche sur la Prestidigitation (In French)

Shopping Recommendations: My first recommendation is to try and find a good local shop near you. Sometimes prices will be a little higher than mail order, but overall it is still better to buy local. You can see stuff demonstrated, you can see what you are buying, and if you develop a good relationship with the owner, he or she can let you in on good deals, let you weed out the good stuff from the junk, and so forth. It generally costs more to run a store front than just a warehouse (or garage!) and a web page. However, many magicians don't have stores local to them, or the local stores aren't very good, or they just don't carry what you are looking for.

This listing (in somewhat of an alphabetical order) does not represent every good shop, and note that some listings are here for the sake of the magic reference pages and I have never shopped there. Also, especially for some of the smaller shops, it may be wise to contact the owner before submitting an order. Some websites are old and may not be current, even though the ordering pages are still available.
