This may sound stupid but I'm having trouble finding a coin purse... Just an old fashioned coin purse with a clasp. A bit out of date I suppose. Anyone know where I can find one?

Most guys have trouble finding coin purses.
Not many guys carry coin purses either.

Ask your girlfriend or grandmother.

And get ready for snaps.

Just do a search on the various sites like magicwarehouse, hocus-pocus, hank/denny lee and steven's magic and you will easily find them.

Typically they run about $10 for leather and $5 for vinyl unless you want something more fancy.

Contact "The Godfather of Magic" Hank Moorehouse. I have several of the coin purses that he sells. They are a little pricey, but I have found them to be worth it.

Leather or plastic?

Goshman products use to sell a small coin purse for his card in coin purse trick.

The loss of the 5 and dime store has left those simple products hard to find.

Coin purses of the type Goshman sold are still or at least they were a year or so ago. Check with Denny & Lee I think he mayhave some.

My girlfriend gave me a nice blue corrdaroy one, but it was stolen along with a bunch of my gear. I'm looking for one too.

What about these funny magicians purses, one can open like a harmonica and contains at least 10 separate pockets easily available from the top?

In any case, a such wallet is to 'carry' the coins/gimmicked ones, so it is not used to be shown and displayed during a performance normally, I would reasoning...

IF one does use purses to be displayed when performing to remove coins, one in any case should have half a dozen or more similar ones, each loaded with the coin(set) one wants to use..

That is what I currently do, and have used for many years, though I use different purses all the way through, each containing a 'set', even 4 Silver$s for the CTTT are in a such purse.

To add a bit of magic to that thingy, I actually here use the *zipper*-purse, which is a great gagitem to open a coinprogram..that purse is a dealers item, but I made my own out of BLACK zippers..

The idea is, it is a 'purse' , but after the coins are removed, the purse is 'unzipped' and shown to consist just of a long, open zipper.

When opening it, you stretch it open between your hands/outstreched arms right in front of your own face..so they'll remember *you*.. Smile

What are everyone's thoughts on the proud magician's tradition of a middle aged man carrying what is essentially today a woman's purse? I'm talking about the snap lock top frame ones. I know they are classic, Victorian maybe and that there are several excellent gimmicked varieties in high quality leather or fabric...

But outside of magic circles they are only used by women nowadays, aren't they? I know there are some more masculine ones with really butch broad frames but I'm talking about the small delicate ones that all grandmothers and magicians seem to have.

I like them but I feel that if I use one, and I even know there is a really nice antique one not in use somewhere at my parent's house, I may get ridiculed. Unless I have a funny line of patter for it.

For a male coin purse I'm picturing something more like this (attached photo).

Having said that, places like etsy.com have hundreds of cute hand crafted coin purses, often with adorable little animals and whatnot on them. Which is nice if one wants to go all the way. Here are some cute examples: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10857460

http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10976560
http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=10991922
etc...

Those Etsy gals (mostly) can also sometimes make custom items if one knows what to ask for.

Good ole' Werner! RIP my friend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Those purses at etsy have a great shape. They're just pretty darn big. If they were smaller and leather they would be great!

Yeah you're right. They are probably too big. I didn't check the specifications. Smallest ones are 3.5" wide. Oh well... No purse with happy smiling giraffes for me then.

Men who are uncertain about their masculinity should neither carry snap shut coin purses nor wear kilts.

When you have the equipment to wear a kilt, then your masculinity is solidly established.
