That is tough....I was going to suggest some high-price illusions such as origami and walking through a brick wall...
You could do the gypsy string; I believe Shawn Farquhar calls it the "Thread of Life". Also, I'm a strict card magician, which my name implies. Doing tricks with a regular deck of playing cards is the best way to go, especially if you are good at sleights. A good trick to do is called "Shape of My Heart", another trick performed by Shawn.

Most people can do card tricks on a stage with the aid of a camera and an overhead.
But, it all depends on the resources you have.

How old are you?
How soon is the show?
What kind of stuff do you already do?
What are you most interested in?
You have $35 right now, but when will you have more?

Answer mine first.
