I dont have any pictures or sell bags or totes, but what about a coat hanger, like the wooden ones?

BizzieLizzie once suggested stuffing them with tissue paper so they would stand up on tables and stuff.

I thought this was an awesome idea and have since used it!

I got two 1.5" x 4' dowel rods and mounted them in 6"x6" blocks of wood (I drilled a hole in it and then fit it done in there with quite a bit of wood glue too!) On the table I used c-clamps to hold down the 6"x6" wood pieces at either end of the table. Then I tied a colorful bunting between the two and used clothespins to hang my little purses to the bunting. I have also used an antique screen and added hooks on the slats. Flickr has some great craft show displays that you might want to check out as well.

Thanks everybody. knotworkshop I did stuff mine with newspaper last time. Also, put pea gravel in baggies and put it in the bottom so the bags wouldn't topple over.
