When I graduated from high school, I really didn't know what to do with myself. I wound up getting a job at a local costume/magic shop I had been purchasing from for years.. Turned out, they weren't only a retail shop. They were one of the largest wholesalers in the country. They had warehouses that ran an entire city block.
The company was owned by a gentleman that once did "midnight spook shows" at theaters. I write about Phil in my "Magic of Fundraising" post. He was known as "Dr. Evil" way before Austin Powers ever came on the scene:
