I have a craft fair coming up and I need some help!
This is the first time I have a good number of bags for sale.  I just need some help with ideas for displaying them.
I was debating on using a display my husband was going to make. A basic "T" shaped display made from pipe.
However, I just don't know how "pretty" it will look.
Any tips on displaying your bags?

Also, I was looking into using magnetic closures for some bags. I've never worked with them before. Any suggestions or tips?

If you make bags, you probably sew - and if you sew, you can probably make a little curtainlike drape to hang over the T bar to hide the pipe.  If you use coat hanger like clips to display your bags, they should still hook over the bar,but you'd have a pretty fabric backdrop as opposed to a wall or vendor behind you peeking through - just a thought:)

I like that idea. I was going to make a "skirt" like thing to go over the base of the display so I may do like you suggested. Now just need to find hangers and see how it looks put together.
That is a good idea. Thanks.

It is the pink and brown polk-a-dot display:

I had a friend help me with a bag display.  We took a wooden pole we got at a junk shop and I had him drill holes all the way through it incrementally, then inserted dowels in at the height I needed.  He built a base for it and it is easy to take apart and put back together.  


Sorry about the very dark picture, but maybe you can get an idea of what it looks like.

i use magnetic clasps in all of my purses/totes, & they are great! I've learned that you need to fuse a small piece of interfacing on the back of the fabric where the clasp will be inserted, or else the fabric may start to come away from the clasp after opening it many times. also, don't buy the clasps at a craft store, get them on ebay for 1/3 of the price!
Good luck!!
