The store contains an assortment of items relating to magic performance, including books and props. Many copies of Magie pro Začátečníky (Czech for "magic for beginners") can be found in the store. The store also displays posters of Liborio's Exploration of the Mind, a magic show that was originally performed by Liborio together with Richard Smallhorn.
Liborio can be found at the store during the first and second visits to Prague.
Voltar 3000 is a fortune teller machine featured in the store. Paying 250 will permit the player to receive a message from Voltar. Upon paying the credits, there is a small chance that Voltar will vend a credit chip with a few hundred credits, or Voltar's Card, which turns out to be a black jack of hearts.
His quotes seemingly reference where you are in sidequest, the main quest, and general player behavior. For instance, upon usage, Voltar says 'you bring destruction wherever you travel,' and you just so happen to play a needlessly violent Adam, he'll play the social battle icebreaker sound, and either reward the black Jack of Hearts, or a small sum of credits (200-540). If you've completed Helle's sidequest successfully, and he says 'someone you lost is watching over you,' the same will happen. His quote selection is random, and getting a quote about a future mission before you complete it will not reward any credits, nor have a chance of getting the card, but repeated use of him will eventually prompt the reward or item.

Notable Items Edit
- 1 vial of Neuropozyne is located in the basement.
- The story item, Voltar's Card, which is a black jack of hearts. This item has no known in-game use. A black jack of hearts is not a card in the standard deck, since hearts is a red suit rather than a black suit.
- Voltar 3000 is based on Zoltar, a fortune telling machine in Big, a 1988 American fantasy comedy film.
