Love it!  I wonder if there are pegs big enough to hold clutch purses?  Hmm...I have to check out my local hardware store.

Wow, where did you get pegboard so cheap?! I tried to do this in October for my first show and it way more expensive. I did need a little more than you used though. I love the way your display looks! Great color choice.

To The 9s, I was going to use this method to display bags as well. Home Depot had a big selection of hooks and pegs and you can probably find something that will work for you! The only thing is the pegboard was thin so the worker guy was telling me how to build a frame for it and everything and it got pricey and complicated, and my show was the next day. They also had white melamine board with horizontal grooves that you can slide the hooks onto (like they have on the wall at clothing stores), which is great if you want to move items around a lot. This was also a bit pricey but seemed sturdier.

If you like handmade bags and purses, check out my etsy!
