Random Tim fact 1,467:
I used to LOVE magicians and magic tricks when I was younger.

My dad would take me to a magic shop in Waukesha, Wi when I was little.
It was such a special place for me.
I remember being in awe of everything,
watching the owner perform tricks wondering if one day I would be that good.

Today I had that feeling come back!
My daughter's and I stopped at the Iowa Magic Shop in Marion, IA a few blocks from my house.

My daughter Ava is getting into magic tricks and asked to go there today. Tim, the owner was incredible in showing her different magic tricks that she was interested in and was just a great guy. All the memories from that experience I had when I was young came flooding back, as I was now experiencing it with my child. So of course I decide to try magic again. 🤣 So enjoy my goofing around.

Anywho, I highly recommend stopping into his shop and seeing all the cool stuff they have.
Especially since most of the uptown Marion is under construction.

"It’s very fulfilling to see young children get their first magic trick, because it reminds me of myself," said 14-year-old magician and Iowa Magic Shop employee Re*****on Haynes.

“Magic is a small art and preservation of it is very important. In my opinion, the Iowa Magic Shop is doing a fantastic job to help preserve and secure the future of magic.”

At the turn of the millennium, Liz Crokin was a University of Iowa journalism and political science student, a college Republican eager to meet the likes of George W. Bush and John McCain. In 2021, she's one of QAnon's most unrelenting advocates, undaunted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump's election loss and the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection. Little Village took a look at the 20 years in between, including what draws people like Crokin and her followers to conspiracy theories and why her messages, masked in Christian righteousness and anti-child abuse activism, are so effective—and dangerous.

Also in this issue: A profile of the endlessly ethereal musician Annalibera, a peek inside the Iowa Magic Shop, and a fruitful partnership between the Coralville Community Food Pantry and local artists to fight food insecurity. Plus: Advice columnist Kiki offers tips for stepping out of your quarantine bubble, and food reviewer Tiffani Green has a change of heart about sweet pizza toppings thanks to Coralville's Marquee Pizzeria.

Another legend passing on.

I am sorry to say we have lost one of the great creative forces in performance magic. Thank you Martin Lewis for all of your kindness and for your gifts to mystery performance. You were a real genius in magic.

Another amazing performer gone from our midst. I cannot say anything that hasn't been said already.

Wanted to extend our thoughts and prayers for Amazing Johnathan and his family. Johnathan was such a fun act to watch and he was a comedy genius. You will be missed but never forgotten. RIP.

The BAD News first...
Iowa Magic Shop is closing.
The pandemic we all know about: It created challenges for many businesses.
Then there was a derecho that went through Iowa.
If you aren't familiar with that term (I wasn't either) a derecho is basically an in-land hurricane.
Locally it was 140mph wind and widespread destruction.
Just as we were starting to return to business as usual the construction started right in front of our store. NOBODY strolling by on a nice day out because you could hardly get to our store. So here we are.
We are NOT going out of business, just closing our brick and mortar store.
You will still be able to order online anytime @ www.IowaMagicShop.com

The GOOD News next...
Ken's Magic Shop
Will open by March 3rd, 2022 in Hiawatha
IMS Partner and good friend Ken Marlin will be opening Ken's Magic Shop in the Cedar Rapids area.
Address: 320 Blairs Ferry Rd NE, Hiawatha, IA 52233
Phone: (319) 551-6579

Here is our latest Google review..........
The staff is all SO friendly and whenever I visit - Showing kids how to do magic tricks, helping me find products, and saying hello when anyone enters the store. Although hidden by construction, there is an easy and short walk to the store and plenty of parking. I personally don't practice any magic, but their metaphysical section of the store is great! I often buy crystals, pendulums, tarot cards, and other witchy gifts for friends. These guys are AMAZING - Go visit them! - Riley

Two years of construction in Uptown Marion has started. Sidewalks are open. I implore you to come support the small businesses on 7th Avenue. If you wait two years until it's beautiful and finished then they may not be here anymore.

07/15/2021

Good Afternoon! If you haven't heard, 7th Ave Marion in front of the Magic Shop is closed and under construction. BUT WE ARE OPEN! The sidewalk is still accessible and there is fencing up for safety. Parking is available on the east side of the shop. This is all part of a streetscape project that will make Uptown Marion even better!
