I don't agree on the cost of wear and tear. Yes, there are tricks that require it, but for the most part you can protect against it, like laminating the cards. I have several tricks that have been in my show for over ten years. They require a bit of re-gluing and tlc, but they can pass the test of time.

You should come with me on a school tour some time. Smile

I'm not sure whether it's just the pace of school tours or the roads in Australia (and the dust) but I guarantee if you bring a piece of granite with you, it will need to be repaired or replaced within 6 months.


I'll bet it's not you.... it's usually your assistants who ding and dent things worse then shifting while transporting.

He he...how many times has my kid helper dropped my Duck Pan base, when I add some yucky ingredient?!

Mouth coil, give away wands (maybe 4-5 per show @ .40 each), 1 paper bag, balloons (if they request them)- adds up to maybe $8. Add in the feed for my bunny, fuel charge, it has to be under $20 per show.

Not bad as far as overhead goes.
