2 decks of cards, 3 silver coins and a copper coin or two.

Then I'm set for a coin set, followed by my favourite card routine Smile

If I'm just doing day to day stuff I carry my split £2 coin and my jumbo £2 coin. These are ALWAYS with me, and fit nicely in my wallet. The reaction I get at the end of my 1 coin routine, when that jumbo appears, totally floors people because it seems impromptu to them. The jumbo fits nicely in my wallet and surprisingly doesn't hinder my day to day wallety needs at all. I have tag-o-magic on my car keys.

If I'm going to a party or something though, ill take my packet trick wallet which is loaded with:
Colour monte (aces instead of the printed cards)
Its done with mirrors
Extreme burn
Safety Hole (hole in credit card)
Dream Paddle
Photoshop (most recent addition) have it loaded with a £2 coin photo ready to lead on to one coin routine.

that's pretty an entire show in my pocket, taking up hardly any space.

Ha! I'll make sure you're not last. Besides, it looks like this one keeps getting resurrected.

I'm not to the point of carrying stuff around with me yet, and I don't seem to go anywhere but to work and back home! But I do keep a deck of cards, a fifty-cent piece, a 12" silk and some rubber bands in my drawer at work to mess around with when I'm on break or lunch.

I always carry John Bannon's Bullet Party in my wallet and a card loaded behind my phone for a little trick I came up with
Usually a few balloons for "pressure" and at least one deck if I get moments to prepare
Hope my Answer helped Smile

My pocket inventory complete changed over the past two or so years. I used to carry a ton of stuff (cards, sponge balls, TT, etc...[funny thing is, I would only perform with the cards and everything else collected "dust" <-- read pocket lint]) but now I just carry my Johnson Expanded Eisenhower Dollar Shell and 4 matching coins, a Johnson expanded Quarter shell with a few matching coins for that as well (for those "apparently impromptu" situations), and that's about it. Occasionally I'll take my TT, but not always. I've become coin crazy.

Yet another evolution over the last few years...

My current daily inventory is mainly a deck of cards +/- a few coins...sometimes I'll carry nothin'.

"Exact Change" by Greg Wilson is fantastic and plays totally "impromptu." Besides a deck of cards and an easy money gaff, this has become the only gimmick I carry around with me on a daily basis.

Hi guys,

normally I carry a few things with me:
- Mandolin-Cards with one or two cards for Twilight Angels and a Sharpie
- my everyday wallet is prepared for Card to wallet.
- In the same wallet is my InnerCircle Card carrying a set of Loops
- and there are also two or three coins in it. Usually a normal, a flipper and a cigarette through...coin.

Since 4 weeks I'm also carrying UltraGum and / or Sticky with me.

Cheers

P.S. I'd like to carry a TT with me but I don't know where to put it without having the fear of losing it Smile

In the UK, a lot of jeans have a little pocket at the front that sits inside the main pocket. Perfect place for a TT. It fits snug & I only have to put my hand in the main pocket to engage it.

Never thought of it... Thanks for this really good advice.
I always wondered what this small pocket is good for.
NOW I know it: it's for my TT!

Cheers

Wow, this thread is really old! Smile Back in 2004, I might have had every pocket, and available space used for something. Then, a FANNY PACK full of stuff! Most of it got ho-hum reactions. Today is different.

Up here in Maine, magic is not very widely received. Where it IS, one has to be careful of YouTube, since everyone has a cell phone. So...I have learned the hard way. Google is NOT your friend most of the time.

So, I carry my Lubor's lens, and my Amazing Jumping Arrow hotrod in my wallet. That's it. I do have an Ike coin in my pocket, but that rarely comes out any more. I am careful now in approaching people. This town is very "unfriendly" when it comes to strangers making conversation. Ya learn to keep to yourself up here, unless ya want a confrontation! Ha! Smile

The few times I DO find myself in the performing mode, I am carrying everything I need. I no longer do the stuff you see on YouTube or stuff the Masked ******-****** has exposed. It's time for a change... Smile

I'm a relative newbie, but I always carry a few blank business cards, a pencil and of course a swami. That way I can do some mind reading at a momeents notice.

Although not strictly magic, I also do a memory feat (remember 30 odd objects or so) or get the person to select a date and tell them what day that date is. Always gets a reaction.
I love post its Smile

Usually just a deck of cards and my wedding band. I can always use other props(I.e. a few napkins or coins or whatever)

I like to carry Greg Wilson's Pointless. I usually do a coin vanish with the pen as a wand and then go into the pointless routine. It's quick and ends clean.
