  • Ashod Baboorian told me stories in his tiny magic shop for an hour on a cold day.

    “We came all the way from Indiana to visit,” one couple said as they greeted Mr. Ash at the counter.

    “All that way just for my shop?”

    “Just for your shop.”

    “You know, I never knew this place was world-famous.”

    “No, we came from Indiana.”

    “He’s only fooling around,” his wife said from his side. “He hears just fine, when he wants to.”

    Mr. Ash just smirked.
