I do, because it's easier for the person to carry their purchases around.  I sell mostly jewelry, so I use regular lunch sacks that I've stamped my name and URL on.  I'll put their item in it, and staple the bag shut with their receipt on the outside.  I think it's a nice gesture, and as long as it isn't costing you a whole lot, why not?  Many people at the craft fairs I go to just use a supply of platic grocery sacks, and then you're also recycling Cheesy

You also could just put the items in a plain gallon sized ziplock (with maybe a sticker with your logo/info on it).  I'd put it in something so if they don't want to wear it right away, they don't have to, or if they're shoving it into a bag with a lot of other stuff, it'll at least stay neat and clean Smiley

I do the same! I usually share my booth with a friend, and I bag my merch in brown paper bags with my label glued on them (printed them out and well, glued them on). My friend is a bit more crafty: she makes paper bags out of magazine pages/old calendars and twists some more paper for the handles. Smiley

I have plastic 'thank you' bags for clothing and small lunch bags stamped with my logo for smaller items.

I use small gift bags 6"x6" as  sell jewellery, they are made from recycled paper though, with a business card tied to the handle.  I also wrap every purchase in tissue.  I do this for parties and fairs but not for online purchases as it ups the postage costs.

I use colored paper lunch sacks for bigger items and small plastic ziplock bags for jewelery. I make a sticker label with my small sticker machine with all my info.

I really like the idea of using gallon sized ziploc bags for clothes. The plastic would stop the clothing from getting torn or stained by anything else in the bag. I'm wondering if it'd be possible to stamp a logo onto the plastic.

It might smear if you use regular ink, but if you colored the stamp with sharpie and stamped it it should stick without smearing since sharpie can write on plastic bags with no problems.  possibly permanent stamp ink would work too.
