I used to always have one or two mini decks with me, but I slacked off a bit, mote recently. I still consider it a good habit though.

I always have a Thoth pocket size within reach when I travel anyway. That way, I was able to do spontaneous readings both for the barmaids in a bar in California and for a lonely birthday child (plus a barmaid :) ) in a bar in Lucerne, Switzerland.

Not to forget, I did this a few times in a local disco, whereupon the staff members suggested I do this regularly as an attraction for customers. :)

Yes, these days I have a mini (and it is SMALL) version of my deck, the World Tree tarot. But I very rarely use it on the fly. I do keep a copy in my desk, close at hand, and that has been that way for years.

I do carry a deck with me in my bag, although I've forgotten which deck it was.

Unless I have a need to, such as working a psychic fair or reading for a friend, I rarely carry a deck with me unless I am travelling. I do have multiple Tarot apps on my iPhone to use though I don't use those much to read. More often, I read the book for the deck that is loaded into the app or study the deck since I do like being able to enlarge details of the cards. It makes waiting a lot more tolerable!

Oh, you have your own tarot! I'd love to hear more about that in the tarot creation department ;-)

I usually carry a deck in my bag. Lately it has been Alice Tarot or Shadowscapes.

NO,NO! I didn't make it, a friend of mine did. I watched her design it and even had a very small amount of impute. I consider it MY deck, since so few use it.

Yes. I bought some minis and some decks in tins so that I could carry a deck. I just like having one with me.

I would normally have one or two physical decks with me at all times but I finally came up with a solution... I could n;t decide which set
I now can carry over 140 decks with me at all time ... USb and laptop with a software application I use for email readings. I can shuffle and draw and rad the cards myself ... It is another alternative and my client's love it, they have a choice of decks, they get to shuffle and draw the cards themselves and I can email them the reading afterwards, for them to read later...

It saves me trying to carry over 140 decks with me ....
