Window Stoppers. By U.F. Gen Grant. Published by Ireland Magic Co.

Regular price $15.00 Sale

This spiral bound book describes store window displays which are magical in one way or another causing pedestrians to stop and look into the window. Once a person stops and looks at the display the chances for them to actually enter the store have dramatically increased.

Several of these contraptions use magic principles. One can think of them as magic apparatus displayed in action. Although these displays could be employed by pretty much any store, I would think that they would be most appropriate in the window of a real magic store. I have never seen any magic store use anything like this. An innovative idea waiting to be exploited by the next entrepreneurial mind.   26 pages.  ca1960
