National Magic Shop in Chicago was ran by Jim Sherman (1888-1972) for many years.


In 1926, Sherman leased space for a Gift Shop in the Arcade and had a counter devoted to magic. The business at this counter grew to such an extent that it took over a complete shop on the third floor which we opened under the name of the National Magic Company.
