In watching card manipulation for years and within the last couple years of fooling around with it, I am at an impasse -- I have practiced a couple productions to the point where I feel they look pretty good BUT I don't see how I can actually USE them anywhere with out leaving cards scattered all over the floor where I am performing.

I have done a few shows and having the audience watch as I litter the ground with cards isn't too entertaining, -- also I would like it to be more 'parlor' than full on stage work and so I am wondering what to do with these flourishy moves I have put some time into.

I have thought about dropping them into a hat but then that is one more prop to not forget bringing, and I like to travel light -- case, tray stand, and pockets... I don't know. Any ideas ?

Hey bigchuck ,

Normally , I will drop them into my case . I made a pocket inside my case which is ONLY for cards to drop in . Smile . Hope this can help you .

Get a collapsobile top hat to drop them in or a small box.
They could both be transportable and about forgeting things make a checklist of everything you will need.

Hope this helps.

You could have a large servate type pocket on the back of your table drape for that purpose.
