Tired of your close-up props being a mess?  Embarrassed by your scratch and dent unprofessional looking case?  Well, your timing then couldn't be more perfect.  This is your ONLY opportunity to get THIS perfect piece of road worthy art.  Tell your friends about now.  Once you have it, it will be too late for them.  You will be tired of wiping the drool off of your plush velvet performing surface (that's not even the best part) .  

I have found 3 kinds of tables and cases available on the market.  

#1: Unprofessional: Homemade with moderate skill, modified from a hardware store purchase, or the worst... a case for poker chips that has been dumped out.... ugg.  Aren't you charging hundreds per hour? Do you really want to walk into that wedding, corporate gig, or even bar-mitzva with a case that a 13 year old says, "Hey, I have one of those at home!"

#2: Impractical: Beautiful wood that will get destroyed in transport, cases that are way too large to carry around or too heavy!  Aren't you doing tons of shows each year or don't you want to?  Remember the long walk from the parking lot last summer?  Do you REALLY want to lug that thing around?  After you bump it off one doorway and the front rail splinters up... what then?

#3: Fantastic (looking).  Yeah it's got a ton of fancy containers that pop out when you open it... then what?  You can't carry it table to table and open it for all to see the contents!  Where do you put it... on the ground?   What do you perform on?

If you know me or you are familiar with my work then you know every detail is painstakingly analyzed.  I began working on the ULTIMATE case for close-up workers and buskers a couple years ago.  

The process: 

I already had the experience with manufacturing and contacts with import companies and factories in place.  From the first sample I was impressed with the quality this factory gave me.  I actually sold the samples as working units last year!  While using one of the samples, wind blew it off the tray and at that moment the magnetic feet were born.  After playing with really annoying Velcro straps the idea of elastic hit me.  I used it for many performances to see what thoughts would come to mind.  I did many tests for durability and practicality in real world situations.  I took it to conventions to hear what YOU all had to say.  I consulted with countless professional entertainers. After more than a year of development and a ton of factory samples we now have EXACTLY what we were looking for!  I have been using the case myself now for a year and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!  

Is it professional?  YES!  Factory made with black anodized aluminum corners and edges for strength.  Wide tripod stand for stability.  Velvet accouterments for elegance.  Truly ROAD WORTHY ART.  Your not going to believe what else we have done....

Is it practical?  YES!  Small enough to carry on to any major airline.  All the pockets you need and a customizable insert.  Sets up quickly and you can carry it away with ONE HAND in seconds.  Tilting table, servante, adjustable legs to perform on a hill or unstable surface...  this thing isn't just practical it reinvents your performance!  That's not what makes it leaps and bounds above any table on the market....

Is it fantastic?  YES!  In a million different ways.  Use it table side instead of putting your props on guests dirty tables.  Take the case off and use the beautiful velvet covered table for your show.  Perform right out of the case and use the velvet top as your performing surface.  Customize pockets inside that fit full size magic wands, chop cups, silks, ropes, cards, coins... anything you desire!

TOGETHER we can bring your new best friend to life!

13" wide, 18" long, 4" or 5" depth (your choice).

BUT you're not JUST getting this magic room center piece....  Because you are part of making it happen we are throwing in a LOT more.  Wait til you see what --FREE-- gifts you get when the project is funded!! Yes, we are THAT confident... read on to find out why...

Chose a pledge option with these special add-ons:

1. FREE ...an entertainer stick figure car window family.  2 adults and up to 5 add-ons such as children and animals.  See them here- http://happieamp.com/entertainer-stick-figure-window-stickers.html     

2. FREE Surprise gifts.  Yeah we have some GREAT stuff!  You will be thrilled when you open your package and find your amazing bonus!  No, I will not tell you what it is....but YES I am excited!

3. FREE set of 3 lecture notes.  I poured my heart and soul into these notes telling the story of how I took B. Happie Entertainment from 0 to 1000 shows a year with 20 performers.

Now it's your turn.  This will not happen without your help.  Pledge now and pay later.  ONLY when it is fully funded will you be charged.  I need YOU to be part of history and make this happen.  This will be the only case to revolutionize your show.  The case your friends can't stop touching and staring at.  This project has to be fully funded by November 6 or it is gone for good.  Pick a pledge to the left.. and remember you will not be charged now!

Risks and challenges

I have been through typical challenges for manufacturing and Importing many times. I have a great relationship with the logistics and importing company we have been using for many years.

Typical obstacles include customs delays that we have experienced in the past. This product doesn't have the electrical and radio components that get extra attention from customs.

Damages in shipment are always possible and likely. We are ordering enough to cover damages 3 times over.

Design errors we have faced. With this project we have received a completed sample so we are in complete agreement with the factory on what is to be done.

This isn't my first rodeo.
