what is Color changing knifes and Out of control Queens?
I agree impromptu magic is a GREAT way to go and everyone should know some. Regardless, if we are talking about just everyday stuff that don't require the forethought of "Just in case" mine is a deck of cards, and thumbtip. As for Non-magic, but can be used for such, items - pen (For writing down ideas), lighter (I don't smoke), and my cell phone (For that every so often amusement)
A Tally ho circle back deck =D
1 tally ho
1 bicycle vintage fan back
A deck of cards and one coin.
No more room, because my wallet and cellphone fill almost all of the pockets.
Out of control queens I don't know, but i believe colour changing knives are knives that well...change colour, surprisingly enough, heres a video:
I carry a loop on each wrist, a couple decks of cards, one with Osterland's stack, one regular. I also carry a sharpie and I always wear my PK ring. I can pretty much accomplish any miracle I want to with these objects.
I carry certain things when I'm in the mood for them:
Superman (Coin Bender)
(always) Ghost Deck
Coin Master (isn't very famous, but still an excellent coin vanishing gimmick)
(Just ordered it, can't wait!) Distortion
(when I'm walking around indoors) HoverCard
I have a few more things that I use less with walk around magic.
Deck of cards, pen through dollar, and some money.
I agree, the only other thing that I have is about 6 or 7 loops ready to
Unless I'm actually PLANNING on doing a show or some tricks for someone, this is what I always bring:
~Blue master's deck.
I just carry several decks of cards, one in each pocket, so switching between them is simultaneous. When I carry my red bicycle deck, I bring a svengali, and a stripper deck with me. Other times with my blue bicycle deck, I bring a invisible, and gaff deck with me. A deck shell, sometimes, helps too. Also bringing some clothes helps control and keep the audience calm.
1.Deck of Cards
2.My business card holder which contains 20 or so business cards, WOW, Entourage, 2 card Monte gaffs, and business cards of people I might need to contact that week (and keep in mind that the thickness of the business card holder doesn't exceed the thickness of a deck of cards even with all of that in there).
3. Cell phone
With the above I can go anywhere and always be ready to land a gig, get food, and contact anyone who needs contacting.
Do all of you honestly carry this with you at all times, or are you using this thread to show off your collection?
I don't carry ANYTHING with me unless I plan to perform.
If there's a chance I might introduce magic, which is more often than not, I'll maybe take along a card wallet with a packet trick, like Strange Traveler, or Twisted Sisters. I'll bring along a regular deck, maybe set up for an ace production, or for Revolver. I might bring along an extra deck, like ID or Fadeout, or a 3 card monte set up. I can borrow bills and coins for the rest.
Real shows are a different story.
PS: I almost forgot Pen through dollar, and puncture.

That's about it on most days. Occasionally if I know I'll be around people who may be interested in seeing something I'll add a thing or two to the list, but in general, that's about it...and when I say I "carry" a deck of cards, I actually keep'em in my car. If it's 100% spur of the moment without time to go get'em, I stick with coin routines for the most part.
