Does anyone know where to get hold of a poachers style pouch from, pref in th uk?
I have tried cups and balls from both trouser pockets and very basic pouch on an apron the pouch has a lot more room etc but I prefer the angles with the trouser pocket, prob is that trouser pocket bulges like mad with all them loads in?

Greetings and Salutations,

Contact Frank at http://www.theambitiouscard.com for a variety of pouches. He makes good stuff that gets rave reviews. He's in the US but I'm sure he ships to the UK. I believe Mario Morris, who contributes regularly on the sidewalk shuffle forum carries Frank's pouches, or has in the past, and Mario is located in the UK.

I used these or variants of these "nail bags" when I first started busking to various levels of success. They were OK, but not great. The best was when I stitched 2 of them together so I could hold larger loads for cups and balls.

Eventually I went with theambitiouscard.com and Frank's amazing pouches and gave my nail bag type pouches to a homeless dude who wanted to twist balloons, because that's about all it was really good for...

Go with the best, kids...

I don't do street busking for a living but have done it a few times to make some cash when ive not been working and also use the (gazzo esq) cups and balls when ive done stage work - and I needed a pouch but didn't want to pay for the costly gazzo pouch etc - (until demand justifies that is.)

I made a pouch which works perfectly - it was originally a womans bag - I bought it 2nd hand for 40 pounds but it would have been 100 new- the leather quality is great and its really thick and tough. - I cut all the handles and buckles etc off it - then threaded it with stiff leather cord and a tough belt. took a few adjustments to get the angles right and to have it hang flat etc but now its spot on (i think)
it also has a few compartments for cards/tt/balls as well as plenty of room for 6 oroanges and mellon.

no one has called me up on it (inc other magicians)- and it now looks nothing like the bag it once was.
so if you cant afford a proper pouch - you could make one to use , until you can afford the gazzo pouch - though I'm happy with this for now

Necessity is the mother of invention.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

That bag looks great, I'm a big fan of homemade props!

Thanks - it was tough to sew the leather becuase its so thick - ive huge amounts of respect for the work that goes into the High quality ones now I have had a go.

that bag was destined to become a pouch - I should buy more and sell them here- now that ive worked out what I'm doing - Any takers lol

I admire your ability to make something yourself! As Gaddy said everyone should do that. I think you get a lot of satisfaction out of doing that. I did that with a table, a couple pouches, etc. Eventually I replaced them all with professionally made items but I'm still glad I did it.

I started with a pouch I bought at lowe's, it looked exactly like what it was...a toolbelt.....
then I had Frank make me a set of pouches that would fit my act, 3 bags..
I'll never go back.......one of the best investments I ever made.....
