Hi everyone

Just wondered if anyone knew of anywhere or anyone in the uk that sells these for a reasonable price. I have found some on American sites but due to postage and import costs it would not be a viable option. I am also looking for a busking table that the likes of gazzo uses?

Any help will be greatly appreciated
Thanks

Gazzo lives in the U.K. although he's not there right now. You're probably in the best place in the world to get your hands on one.

Hey - I have a pouch I could sell(UK)

I recently upgraded to the gazzo pouch as ive been doing street shows and could justify the cost but -(its very) but that costs £210 - so its a very big investment- this one did me fine for a year and is in good condition. - ill upload a photo tonight -

its brown leather and holds full 6 large oranges/melon and some - it was made my me last year - I would sell it for £55 inc postage.

Its in brown but you could use a leather dye to get it black if you prefer.
Its not a "work of art" like the gazzo pouch - but it does the gazzo routeen very well and has a clip on adjustable waste band which I prefer to the way the gazzo pouch uses a regualr belt. This makes it easy to clip on/off without drawing much attention to its self so you don't have to wear its the whole way through your act.
(plus a handy inner pocket for keeping the balls in place-...i know )


you can email me at

pills86uk@yahoo.co.uk

and I can take paypal/cheque etc.

Or- get a gazzo bag,

but this is quite a good "stepping stone" if you don't want to invest too much to soon.

Hi
I do make table tops and considering your on the course I will teach you. all make one for you.

I can make them up for about £80.

Tom this is a handy skill to have it can serve you around the world. If your any good at lego you will be able to make your own table top.

Shawn - I got mine new a few months ago -gazzo still makes them -

I just sent him an email and after a quick chat I sent him the cheque and a week later - I had the pouch. I was impressed how quickly he managed to make it. (his email is on his website)


Im selling this brown pouch - it did me well before I upgraded. (i think to tom procter)

My My Tom , that's the idea of a workshop. We show you and give free advice on how to make stuff, construct a table, I'll even show you how to make a leather pouch or change a carborator on a 1967 mini cooperS after the workshop. Which will probably be Sunday night. Or even change oil on a diesel engine. Or tan a hide. But knowing all of these things is different than actually DOING it. We will look forward to seeing you there and giving you free advice.
The buskers workshop is sold out by the way. But knowing Mario, IF you make a special request he might make room for one or two of you. But that's up to him.

As far as I'm concerned I'd rather be slow dancing with a midget.

Gazzo,

Is the gender of the midget important? There's one drinks in my place of work every Sunday - but he's very specific. - he's looking for a WOMAN. I'm no matchmaker, but I hate to see opportunities mixed... 4ft 2 inches - that ok?

:)

Its the brown one - the black one with a red lip is the gazzo one (thanks!) -

there is only one brown one in the photos - just looks different in the light. (pot of black leather dye inc in sale)

tom are you "fireperformer911" who I have been emailing to/from about the pouch or is that someone else -I was not sure.

I see

I have been talking to a mystery bidder as well (hens above when I stated you were buying it-)

I am split down the middle as its your thread hense my commitment to you - but also ive chatted by email to this other person.

Ultimatley I think ill need to go with a first come system (deposit atleast) - it would not be adventagious to anyone (except my wallet) to get into some sort of bidding situation.
I put a fair price on it and I want whoever get and uses it to be pleased with it and the happy with the price - I'm not looking to make much money - rather see it out there, being used and help someone else as an affordable stepping stone into doing the street cups (before they perhapses shell out for the full price pouch in a year or two etc)

I'm selling for £55 - inc a pot of black leather dye if wanted and UK postage - with a black adjustable waist strap...... but get your own melon!
my paypal address is pills86uk@yahoo.co.uk -

it was made by me utilizing the leather from an Itallan bag on which I made the modifications/etc into a working pouch. It did the C&B routine well and I kept the rest of my routine in the pouch's pockets (decks/TT's/bands/ballons/takeings etc -

I eventually upgraded to a gazzo pouch in January. (£££).

I'm not trained in leather-craft - so as you can see from the photos it is not perfect looking - but its strong and works well (plus I found it very "forgiving" with the angles and cup loads due to high lip all the way round).
It was my sole catchkeep/bag/pouch/servante etc for my regular "gatecrasher" gig last year and hangs under my jacket in reasonably inconspicuous manner

Tom - I could hold it for you if you can send a paypal a deposit of £20 so I know your serious in your intent and then the following £35 next week. - but if this other bidder sends the full payment over before this deposit then I shall have to go with him.

Warm regards
Aitchy


Nb - if you prefer I can set up an ebay "buy it now" sale so you can be assured by my 100% feedback , but due to 7.75% ebay fees + insertion fee I would incur it would have to be £60.

Tom as I laid out on the inercircle the simple way to make up a table top as I do. So know I would not charge you how to make up a table top all any one for that matter,(that is free info). You will find threads on hear for free where I and others have given this information for free. I whould charge 80pounds if you wanted me to make it for you.

You started of saying you wanted a Gazzo table (good choice) I did not know he makes then up so that is good news for you.
