Generally winter is a time to stay indoors, especially for me. With the holidays over and nothing to keep me occupied, I can’t help but notice (and seriously dislike) the cold temperatures and dreary weather. If anyone gets the winter blues, it’s me.

Brown County is definitely full of unique shops, unlike those you would find anywhere else. From homemade candy to handcrafted pottery, you can find just about anything here. But, to Rich Hill, there just seemed to be something missing. And that something, in fact, was a magic shop.
Brown County adds new shop, Rich Hill Magic & Fun Emporium, to its eclectic collection of stores. From basic pranks to big scale stage illusions, this store is Brown County’s new one stop magic shop! Of course, naturally, I had to go check it out myself. Lucky for me, I was able to talk to Rich about his new shop and his passion for magic. Here’s what he had to say…
