11 Market St., Wilmington
HOURS: Daily 10 a.m.–10 p.m.
The Black Cat Shoppe advertises itself as a magic shop, but the number of joke items far outnumber the Chinese finger cuffs and black top hats. Belch tonic, paparazzi action figures, voodoo dolls, refrigerator magnets, and T-shirts emblazoned with R-rated phrases line the shelves at the quirky little shop.
It’s one of the best places to find T-shirts, posters, and postcards that honor Wilmington  as an entertainment mecca.
On Saturdays, Scotty the Wizard offers tarot card and palm readings. He also performs magic tricks on the sidewalk in front of the store to entertain passersby.
