There used to be a joke shop there when I lived ther in 1990 but closed down shortly afterwards.

If anyone knows what store it might have been, I would love to know. I've been racking my brain and google trying to remember it.

There are two that come to mind for thew Ottawa area... Perfect Magic, and The Camirand Academy of Magic (in Longueuil,Quebec City). I'm not sure if Perfect Magic is still in business.

there is only one magic shop in ottawa and it's in the same store as a gambling supply store. it's caleld the broken que, the magic shop is just called "magic shop" and it's in bleeker mall. this store is very very over priced, vhs tapes are $50 the guy said "they are so cheap because we don't order them anymore" yea well... $50 isn't cheap. dvds are like $70. don't go there, it's a waste of money, and the selection isn't that great either.

the only closest shops from there are in montreal and toronto. the magic shops that were in ottawa all closed down long ago.

wayno is the joke shop possibly called "the balloon store"? cause i rememebr them having lots of prank things including some magic items.

I'm not sure (been about 15 years ago now) but it was in an older part of the city. Probably brick buildings.

oh, then i doubt it was the balloon store. as for the broken que, havn't been there in a while since it's so expensive. if it closed down, good, it deserved it. waaaaayy to much money for magic, stick to penguin.
