Magic shop "Mayette Magie Moderne"


In Paris I stayed in a hotel that was a 3 minute walk from the magic shop "Mayette Magie Moderne". This is said to be the oldest magic shop in the world, and they have been in business for more than 100 years. Currently the shop is owned by Dominique Duvivier and apart from the products every magic shop sells, they also of course have the complete collection of things that Duvivier has created.

パリに行って、世界1古いマジックショップ「Mayette Magie Moderne」から歩いて3分くらいのホテルに泊まった。100年以上営業して、今Dominique Duvivierというマジシャンがオーナーになっている。どこでも売っていそうなネタもあるがDuvivierさんのネタも勿論全部売っている。割と沢山のネタのクリエーターなんだ。


I bought a rope magic DVD produced by the shop, and a safety pin DVD by Gaetan Bloom. I also bought some card pips made out of sponge.

ショップのオリジナルのロープマジックのDVDを買った。フランス人のGaetan BloomさんのアンピンのDVDも買った。次の日にカードのマークの形のスポンジも買った。

The shop was smaller than Magic Dream, but it was also busy with lots of customers. There were families there buying props for their kids to use, there was a middle aged woman there buying a very large close-up mat, and many more.

Magic Dreamより狭い店だったがMayetteにもお客さんいっぱい入ってきた。家族で入って子供が練習に使う道具を買った。おばさんが入って、めちゃくちゃでかいクローズアップマットを買った。色々な人が入って、忙しかった。おすすめのネタ何かありますか?と聞いたら、主にDuvivierさんのネタを見せ出した。
