I'm looking for something to store Birthday party supplies, I'm looking at those tables/suitcases, but they are a bit pricy. Does anyone know a cheaper alternative. Can those able/suitcases hold a square circle deception?
You know you are a magician when you have boxes full of lecture notes you have never read, but still are excited about going out and buying more.

Swisskid,
I ran into the same problem, and I think I found a great solution. I got a trunk (they have them at Target or Walmart, mines an older army trunk.) They have wheels whihc makes them easy to transport from the card to the gig. My lid comes of completely, so I title the trunk up vertically, and put the lid on top. Inside, I have several of those tupperware drawers, that hold all my props. The drawers are stackable, so if I want to take a bigger prop (square circle) to a show, I just take out one of the drawers. Here's a pic (the quality is bad). Hope this helps!

Regan,

Look at kitchen and nusery plastic trash cans on rollers. They have tops, are cheap, weather proof, and are packed and ready to go when you are! (I like the squarish ones.)

I carry my `things' in the pull-along cases like kids carry to school. This is the smaller version of the `pull-along' suitcases with wheels you see at airports. It has a pull out handle and a full circle zipper for opening. I have my items in cordboard/plastic boxes that stack inside. I have a small red/yellow one that I use for `kids partys' and a black larger one for regular acts (covered in magic stickers). Each has separtate compartments on the outside too for more stuff. I even `bungie cord' my table to the outside of the one I'm using that perticular day. If you need something larger, Wal-Mart has much larger sizes as well as the smaller ones..
The Doctor will see you now! ;-)

I use a roller suit case as you can find in the airport as every magician do AND a large cotton bag mounted on a woodkit X shapped (used for disposing linen attending to be washed.) You can drop inside all the props you don't want the litle monsters touch!

You can get the silver cases at LOWS also. $20-25. Just open them up before you buy them. I have 2 and when I went to buy the secound one. Not all the parts were there. You cant beat the price. Oh don't TRY THIS AT HOME! One time I was using the case and ended up stranded out side in a down pour of rain, it must of rained for 4 hours. When I opened the case up there was no water inside. CLOSE CALL!
