Tivoli’s Astounding Magic Supply Company
3333 14th St NW, Washington, DC 20010
The store describes itself as "the District’s only illusionarium and de-lux haberdashery," stocking "everything a budding magician needs to embark on their own path to mastery, from Stage Fright Antidote to Micro Escapes (for starting a career in escapology)." It is owned and operated by 826DC, a non-profit that seeks to foster writing skills in children and young adults. Proceeds benefit the organization's programs. The concept was inspired by the 826 Valencia Pirate Supply Store in San Francisco. There are similar locations in Boston, New York, Seattle, London and other cities.
