About Us

Located in Pike Place Market, the Market Magic Shop, founded by Sheila Lyon and Darryl Beckmann in 1973, is the longest-running magic shop in the Pacific Northwest and 3rd oldest in the USA!  Since May 2023, Patrick, Brent, and Bill have taken over as the new owners!

As you peek inside the shop, you will see photographs of famous magicians that have visited, turn-of-the-century magic posters, and a fun, jam-packed atmosphere of enthusiasm and wonder. You’ll find cards, coins, books, juggling equipment, tarot cards, clowning supplies, yoyos, jokes, gags, and more!  We have a fantastic Fortune Teller named ZOLTAR that will tell you your fortune!

Come and see the magic for yourself!
