I was warming up this weekend and I had my coins out and I did an impromptu misers dream using, guess what? I used one of Pete Biro's huge galli galli cups for the misers dream.

Hey James, I also use the Biro “Galli Galli” cup for a misers dream routine. I also have used one for a "Coins to Glass" routine (in this case coins to Galli Galli cup). Making a prop do double duty sure cuts down on the number of props you have to carry.

Great line, Harry. That's a great idea to use 'em for coins to glass. I've got to practice that. I used to do the one in Ganson's routined books. Also, you bet about one less thing to carry. I lug around too much stuff already! That's something I'm working on: carrying less stuff.

James, I actually used the Brio Galli Galli cup in a platform act this week. I have a metal stand that holds a huge candle. This holder has four metal arms at the top that are curled. It looks like a small Champaign bucket holder. Yes, I put the Galli Galli Cup in it and a small bottle of champagne (for a signed card to bottle trick) and called it the world’s smallest Champaign bucket. By the way I got the Candleholder from a Funeral Parlor (OK, it was really a Funeral Home, they don’t call them funeral parlor’s anymore!).

Honestly, I wish that Pete had made a Galli Galli Chop Cup man then I would be down to one-cup act and still be able to perform a Misers Dream or Coins to Cup and end with a Chop Cup routine. Talk about one prop doing it all!

Now that I have the copper Galli Galli set I wish that I had the Stainless Steel version too. Anyone with a Stainless set want to trade?

I think that Pete's cups are the largest out there. They have the same mouth diameter as Gazzo's cups but they are taller. This works well for the miser's dream because there's more room for your hand and what it's doing and also the coin drops further which makes a louder sound.

Absolutely! It has a couple of advantages. One of them is that the coins are obviously not real coins. This can be an advantage when you are passing the hat. If you could pull real money out of nowhere, why would anyone tip you?

If you do this, use some really shiny coins. Have them chrome plated, if need be.
