Golden Gate Magic Co. was a mail order company and magic shop on Market Street in San Francisco, California, opened in the 1940s by Tom Dethlefsen (1892-1965).

Originally at 583 Market Street, it moved to 617 Market Street in early 1950s.[1]

Dethlefsen put the shop up for sale in 1960 on advise of his doctors due to a heart condition.[2]

It was sold by the end of the year to Lou Rossi and Leslie Mutchler. They eventually closed around 1966.

Bill Whittington reopened "Golden Gate Magic" in 1985, first with Bob Koch from Chicago (until 1988) and then with Paul Chosse.[3]

The shop also published the Golden Gate Gazette in 1986 (for 2 issues).
