I am looking for some type of table or box without a top on it so I can drop props into it(keeping the props out of sight) after I perform an effect. Any suggestions?

What you are looking for is called a servante and there are some excellent ones on the market.

I read another thread where someone suggested a clothes pin bag (available at Walmart).

I use an old baby bassinet. I found it set out in front of someone's house to be taken away with the refuse. The bassinet is on folding legs and came with a covering already on it so it has a professional appearance. I use it both for removing props from and dumping props into after I use them.

I previously had used a laundry basket that sat on a card table with a custom drape around it that covered the the basket and table. I had created custom holders in the laundry basket to hold the props I had yet to use. I still use the laundry basket as it sits perfectly inside the basinet.

Walmart has a folding barrel-shaped toy receptacle in the shape of a frog, tiger, elephant, etc. and sells for around $29 Canadian. It's great for ditching at kid shows.

For adult shows I took a plastic pool rack and sewed a black felt bag to it. I added an eight-inch piece of aluminum, velcro attached, piece to the side of the bag and I attach this to the top shelf of my suitcase table. It serves as a servante and a ditching bag as well.

Has anyone ever tried Dean Dill's pre-maid servante? It goes for 15 dollars on his site. I was trying to make one the other day. But to much frustration, I am almost about to just give in and pick his up. Should I? Or shall I keep trying to make my own?

Just get a big top hat and come in wearing it. Take it off and go about your normal show and now you have a nice place to dump your props.

How about a firm backpack slightly unzipped at the top?
Or have a friend tag along and ask him to hold your stuff for you.
