Never do anything for free you have to have something benifit you wether it's just placing your business card on the front counter!

Wishingforit,

I'm a card man. I've created tons of card effects, and I've learned thousands of card tricks over the years. I'm not so good with coins.

However, when it comes to walk around, I do mostly cards, a ring-on-string routine, rubber bands, and I carry my TT.

I use one of two openers for walk around, either color changing knifes or a handling I came with to cause a coin to "expand" into a jumbo coin.

I walk up to the person and say, "did you drop this red knife... no?... (do the magic)... how 'bout this white one (the red visibly turns white)." Or for the coin trick, I say, "is this your quarter...no? are you sure; can you see the date? (do the magic). Can you see the date now? (the small coin grew)."

These are great openers.

for performance, I do couple of card tricks (mostly my own card tricks), then I'll do a deck switch as I remove my ring and string from my pocket. I do the ring on string, and then some rubber band tricks. Then it's on to the invisible deck.

My TT is used to vanish sugar packets, cigarettes, or whatever's handy.

Also, I don't use all the tricks all the time, but those are staples for a night of walk around for me.
