I have several favorite illusions which I no longer use. I am always thinking I will use these someday but never have.

Another problem is my female assistant is also overweight now and can no longer fit in some of them, LOL!

Should I dispose of them or just keep them? I'm sure some of you are in the same situation.

I got rid of some in the past and even years later kicked myself. You never know when one will be just what you need and you can rarely replace one for the same cost.

That's a tough one. In my garage I have several Illusions , for example a zig zag, palaquin, doll house and several others I had not used in at least 15 years. Now that I'm getting close to 60 I was thinking about getting rid of them. Then last year I received a call if I could do a 90 minute illusion show, glad I had the illusions, but now I'm thinking, what if it's another 15 years again before I need them..dang by then I'll be pushing them around on stage with my walker!

Will you ever consider putting them back in a show? Depends on your style TODAY. We all evolve and change our style of performing, and hence our choice of material. Ever consider renting them out to other performers? That way you still own them, and could use them in the future. Cheaper than replacement should the need arise.

I had to re-read your post because at first I thought you were wondering if you should dispose of your assistant. That would be kind of awkward...

Well I think you should dispose of them by sending them to me!

LOL
