    I'm not sure this is the correct spot for this question, but here goes.
    I make purses/tote bags and sell them at a few craft shows. In the summer I have my canopy to hang them from, but I did my first indoor show yesterday and had some of my bags on pants hangers hanging from a clothes drying rack. I didn't like the way they looked and am thinking about some kind of free standing wall that I could put hooks in and then hang my purses for full front views. (kind of like the bags hanging from nails behind me in my avatar)
    I'm thinking about plastic lattice. Maybe 2 or 3 pieces hinged together to make a folding screen. Problem is DH and I don't have lots of experience doing any of this kind of work.
    Does anyone have any other suggestions for an easily transportable way of displaying my bags?
    I do have some sitting on tables, but some don't lend themselves to sit up.
    Thanks for any ideas

    when I did craft shows in the past with a friend we had peg board with hinges, then we could hang exactly where we wanted to and it was light weight.

    For starters, could you get those hooks you see at christmas time that hangs from a mantle to put a stocking on? You could put this around your table so that you can hang your purses from it.

    Just a thought, I will see if something else comes to mind.

    How about a pole with small dowels inserted at an upward angle, similar to a thread holder, but not that many, and 2x4's (or something similar) on the bottom to make it stand up. Then hang the purses from that. You could have several, if needed.

    I have a wroght Iron basket stand that stands on the floor, (I hang my longerbuger baskets on)
    it works great for many differnt hanging items.
    I have used it for purses and tote bags. One year I used it for Christmas ordaments.
