Moonin’ Over Magic JunePosted by Category: Uncategorized
Well, here it is June and tomorrow is the first day of summer. We’re gearing up for a new season here at the shop, getting ready to do some interior painting, bring in new magic items, up the oddity ante, and keep hunting the back roads and out-of-the-way places for unique and unusual vintage and antique curiosities. We have a new visitor to Mago’s Cabinet of Curiosities to join The Fiji Mermaid, the Polar Piranha, and the Shrunken Head…THE MONKEY’S PAW! You know the old classic horror story by W.W. Jacobs…the monkey’s paw grants three wishes to an old couple – with horrifying results (of course – this was a horror story after all). Our Monkey’s Paw resides safely behind glass ready to grant it’s new owner three wishes…but as the old saying goes…”Be Careful What You Wish For…You May Get It”! Our First Friday Magic Show with Gene Gordon was an amazing night of magic and sleight-of-hand, which is Gene’s specialty. As a thunderstorm raged outside, we were cozy and warm inside enjoying the talents of one of our favorite magicians. Note: There will be no 1st Friday Magic Show in July, as it’s 4th of July Weekend. In the meantime, enjoy the launching of summer – season of festivals, backyard BBQs, and ….MAGIC!
