Magic stores [in Geneva]

Hello,
Does anyone know if there are any magic stores in Geneva? I'm doing a magic act for my sister's birthday (she's turning 8) and I already have most of the equipment for it but I'm missing some things. And I also need a costume with the special hat (the one with a secret compartment) and wand.
Can anyone help?

They are specialized in party articles, but also have magic trick stuff too.

I went there to buy my party articles for my party a few month ago, but I didn't notice it. I'll go visit them again. Quite a good store actually =)

Re: Magic stores

You had the shop "Truc'Store", Rue des Rois.

It was owned by Jean Garance, a magician.

As he's dead lst year, I don't know if the store is still there.....

If you can't find what you need locally, try Daniel at http://www.swisshouseofmagic.com/ in Zurich. They are very well stocked and you can order online. If it helps, the owner speaks English.
