I keep a hard shell camera case (the type used for video equipment), in the trunk of my car...it has some coins, decks of cards, thumb tips, some gimmick tricks I like, etc in it...for the purposes of busking, I don't feel the need to carry a lot of things with me, so pockets are good enough...if I feel I want to make some changes to my routine, it's not usually a long walk back to the car...

Any time I am strolling around looking for some spectators I always wear a pair of khakies that have 5 or 6 pockets, with one being velcro...the velcro can fit two packs of cards without looking weird...and it helps to have a ton of space to put a bunch of pocket tricks in...

You might want to buy a vest with pockets on the inside and on the outside. One good thing about a vest is you can do vanishes and still have short sleeves on. Just a thought.

Soft sided camera/Video bags work well. They are lightweight, have shoulder straps and several compartments. Usually they can be found at places like Wal-Mart for just a few bucks. Speaking of Walmart, I picked up a beautiful aluminum close up case in the tool box section there. It has foam inserts, adjustable compartment sizes and a removable panel that can hold a bunch of smaller items. I paid 14.99 CDN for it. I guess that would be about 10 bucks US.

If you are just strolling around, then it is up to you. You can use your pockets or a small bag, like a camera case.

If you are busking, and have your own table, then you can use a leather pouch or something like that. Gazzo sells one that he wears on his front on his belt for $500 dollars. Since that is out of most of our budgets, I found a workable alternative. I picked up a soft, nylon and canvas, black Samsonite camera bag at Target for twenty-dollars. It has extra compartments that all come out with velcro. I can fold the flap into the bag, and it hooks to some velcro about half-way in. This leaves the flap forming a kind of wide belt loop, allowing me to attach the bag to my front. This makes it possible to do a street Cups and Balls routine with six final loads and a large five of six inch diameter tennis ball as a final hat load. I can carry all of that, plus cards, my cups and balls, silks etc. I am doing my routine from a two foot by three foot portable table.

Here is a full view. Wish it were leather. :?

Some close-ups of the loads and the from the front.

I tend to use a messanger bag. You can get them at Old Navy, some clothing stores, and I actually bought mine off of a website. I think it was e-bags, or something. Anyways, they have a flap that you can flip over and reveal a zip-up main bag part, where I keep magic books and stuff when I'm out for the day and need something to read. I always keep Bill Tarr's "Now You See It, Now You Don't" :D There is also a lot of smaller pockets where you can keep some extra change, a few packet tricks, possibly 2 decks of cards, a Sharpie marker, etc. In the flap I mentioned earlier, I keep the Magician's Insurance. :-D Great place to keep that too. If you guys need help figuring out what in the world I"m talking about, message me and I'll see if I can find you a link with some pictures.

During school, I use my locker or my backpack. When I'm not at school, I use just my pants pockets.
