Where Did We Go Right?
That seems to be the question going around as the DENNY AND LEE MAGIC STUDIO enters into its fourth year of operation. Those who have been here or who have been ordering from us during the past three years will understand why this shop has been such a success. Newcomers to our shop and mail order services just might like to find out what all the talk is about and we welcome you to a "real" magic shop, the way it should be! When I was growing up in magic, magic shops were secretive little coves where the magicians would hang out and discuss the classics of magic as well as the magic of today. The owners of those shops were always professional performing magicians who knew what this magic field was all about and could always offer assistance in either putting together a show or mastering the latest close-up trick. The shops were decorated with ancient posters, old books, and pieces of fine magical apparatus from the finest magical craftsmen of the day. There were nogag gifts, No Gags!plastic vomit, or rubber dog crap, only magic! When I began this venture three years ago, I decided that this is the way I want this shop to be. I was told by many that it wouldn't work. They said that I needed the walk in trade, the novelty items, and those "quick, over the counter" sales to make ends meet. My instincts as a professional magician have been correct. We have done the right thing!
What Do We Offer That Makes Denny & Lee Special?
Quite possibly the largest stock of books, videos, and tricks of any retail magic shop in the country. The unusual thing is that we don't stock it only because it sells. We stock what we think is good! If you see it in a magazine or hear about it, chances are we have it in stock and ready to ship.
Nothing to figure out. No postage and handling fees on most items shipped in the continental U.S. The prices you see in the magazines, are the prices we charge. We take Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and checks. You can even order online by filling out the screen and clicking on the "Send" button. It really could not be any simpler!!
Phone, fax, or E-mail any order and get immediate service. In most cases, we ship out the same day and you pay no postage or handling fees!
When you call, fax, or e-mail you will get to either Denny or Steve. You will not speak to order takers or stock people. We are all professional performers who can personally answer and understand your questions or concerns. If you want an honest opinion about a book, video, or prop, feel free to contact us and we will give you our personal suggestions about your particular needs.
Hours Of Operation
You can reach us from 11:00 am til 11:00 pm, seven days a week. If our lines are busy, leave a message and we'll get back to you. If you are in the Baltimore area, come in a have a seat, have some coffee, and just relax. It's a great place to hang and talk with other magicians.
We supply the real pros as well as the serious students of magic. We lean heavily toward the manipulator and stage performer and believe in the "classic" books and props as well as "What's New" We will advise when we can to assure that you get what you need. Can't find it anywhere else? Call Denny or Steve anytime. We look forward to making your magic studies more efficient.

|Simply, by far, THE expert in all things magic. If Denny tells you he has a rooster that can pull a train - buddy, go hook it up. And if he tells you he has just the book or prop to rocket your career, don't think twice, don't ask how much - FIND the money and BUY it!
Each time I stopped at his shop (it's so much more than a shop) I had to limit my purchases to what would fit in the overhead compartment of tiny airplanes. Otherwise, I would have walked out with dozens of volumes.
Make time, sit and listen to Denny. If you're allergic to smoke, hold your breath. I did, and it's worth it.
But God help you if you disrespect Tarbell in Denny's presence.
