Harry isn’t the only Potter who can amaze with magic - Ken Potter has enough trickery to leave even the sorcerers of Hogwarts School stunned into silence.

Ken owns the Aladdins Magic Shop, a store jam-packed with over 1,500 gifts and products showing you how to perform every magical trick invented.

Whether it’s a simple card, coin or cup-and-ball trick, stunning sleight-of-hand, incredible illusion, mind-blowing mind-reading or a mesmerising stage routine, the Aladdins Magic Shop can cater for your needs.

Ken stocks everything from bargain buy children’s magic stockings, beginners’ magic sets, DVDs, downloads and ebooks by professional magicians, all the way up to high-spec stuff for the experts. Ken, who took up magic after leaving the armed forces in the 1980s, has frequent visits to his shop by professionals but says his Reddish store is more for the public.

He says: ‘‘The shop is for people fascinated or intrigued by magic, whether it’s the bloke showing off some card tricks to his mates in the pub, a parent entertaining with some mind-reading at a child’s party or, indeed, a youngster keen on magic. In fact, I have the perfect present for a child interested in magic. The Soc-O-Magic set for kids over five is like a Christmas stocking. It’s from the USA and one of my best sellers. I’m not surprised – you get around £25 worth tricks for about £10 to £15.

‘‘Another favourite is the Stunning Magic Gold Edition compendium. It almost flies off the shelves. Aladdins Magic Shop is used by people who’s hobby is magic. Once they have visited a few times that hobby soon becomes a passion.’’

Ken not only has a hugely-stocked shop but sells worldwide via the web at aladdinsmagicshop.co.uk.

He explains: ‘‘I’ve over 1,500 items in stock but that rises every week. I use reputable suppliers from Italy, US, India and China. 

‘‘All my products are high-quality and priced very competively. It works because the majority of my shoppers are repeat customers. And they spread the word, too,      because I get a lot of custom through word-of-mouth.’’

Ken became enthralled by magic after seeing a magician on TV. He quickly became part of the magic scene, performing in pubs and clubs. He opened his first magic shop in Ashton in 1989, then moved to Manchester’s Arndale shopping centre before opening the Aladdins Magic Shop. 

Ken only has big regret about his magical life. He explains: ‘‘I just wish I had been called Harry Potter instead of Ken Potter. That would have been magical!’’
