I'm looking for a way of organizing coins and other small props in my front trouser pockets. I found on the web, "The Pocket Pocket" by Carl Andrews, that seems to have promise. Does anyone use this? Does anyone have any other methods?



thanks

Smile I have a small pouch that I put onto my belt which carries a deck, a zipper area for my coins, and a velcro opening area where I put my spongeballs or whatever smaller prop I want to bring that day.

There is also room for some business cards, extra cards or whatever. I got it from my dad, but I am sure they sell them in your area. Smile I know this doesn’t go into your pocket unless a little bigger than normal pockets, but it is very very handy. I wear it all over.

Cya,

Hi Paul

I also have a Carl Andrews Pocket Pocket, and have found it handy for the two coin routines I use. I also need a coin purse in the same pocket for one of these routines along with a thumb tip and a 2" sponge ball!

I have thought about pocket management quite a bit and have my waistcoats and jackets made with this in mind.

Also, Klamm Magic has a nice pocket organizer, and Chazpro has one that attaches to your inner breast pocket, although I wish the material of the Chazpro item was stiffer.

I use my flamming card to wallet.

In this I have:

hopping half, lethal tender, 4 - .50 cent pieces, 5 packet card tricks, two rubber bands around the wallet. A card with 10 spare rubber bands, The pride and joy card, gimmick 2 dollar bill with two $1.00, linking pins.

I know it sounds like a lot but it’s not that bad and it all fits in my right hand front pocket. NOTE: I don’t wear jeans. This also fits in my coat breast pocket not a suit, but a winter coat. This wallet is with me always

Can you describe the Klamm organizer? Is it for an outside coat pocket, or inner breast pocket, or what?

The Klamm product (which is VERY inexpensive, but still high quality--which surprised me!) goes in your side jacket pocket.

I just received my Klamm Close-Up Pocket Organizer today (a VERY good and fast service from the States, BTW).

It is designed for use in your side jacket pocket but can also be used for cummerbunds too. (Rather sweetly, they spell them 'cumber buns'!)

It has:

4 large compartments for playing cards, silks, sponge balls, etc.

6 small compartments for coins, dice, miniature cards, etc.

4 small compartments along the bottom for narrow long things like colour-changing knives, thumbtips, etc.

It is sewn in two halves so that it still works as a normal pocket 'in the middle' - ideal for holding a full pack of cards, etc.

I haven't actually tried it yet but, potentially, it looks to be very useful.
Warmest regards
James

I have used Kalmm’s pocket organizer for years. I actually have three of the critters. Each one remains permanently loaded with an entire (almost) close up act. They are inexpensive, well made and versatile. They are designed to organize props in a jacket pocket.

James has described it well. The center section that James mentions will hold a deck of cards or can be propped open a bit to hold sponge balls, a large ring, whatever. I sewed a full deck card index into the center of one of mine.

This costs about $10.00 USD from
http://www.Klamm-magic.com.

I tend to work in a blazer, even when I am in jeans and t-shirt. Since my close-up is really stand-up I tend to carry my props on me. Thus, when I put on my Blazer (act) I put in the appropriate loaded pocket organizer, my wallet (card to wallet) and TOPIT (Pat Page style). Looking like I am ready for the street, I am really ready to perform.

After GreatScotts recommendation I purchased a Klamm organizer. What a great device, how did I do it before. Once I have the placements of props down it can only get better. Thanks Scott

The Joshua Jay close up case is good also. You can cary a deck, as well as packet tricks, coins & rubberbands & business cards.

It is very nicely made in black leather.

Would you, off hand, know an on-line source to look at/purchase a Joshua Jay close up case?

Thanks

I'd like to "second" the kudos for the Klamm pocket organiser. Nicely made and holds WAY more than I had expected.

The ability to segregate so many individual coins and small items in such a small space is a great help.

Now, all I need to do is get used to knowing "what is where" on the fly so it doesn't look like I'm having my own private puppet show...

The pocket-pocket is a pocket organizer for the trouser pockets. It turns your front trouser pocket into 8 pockets to easily organize your props without any bulges in your pockets. A big hit at every lecture.

Aloha,
Carl

I just got a Klamm organizer on Scott Guinn's recommendation.

One of the best magic related items I have ever bought, thanks Scott!
