I am doing my first craft show this weekend and was curious as to recommendations for bags for purchases....what do you use and is there a chain store that I can get them at? I just signed up for the show today or I would have taken care of it already! Thank you!

Oh there are so many options!
depending on the size bags you want you can:
Make your own - I sew book pages together. Makes for a neat gift too.
Buy plain ole lunch bags and dress them up - stamp em, decorate em, slap a sticker on em. I know a vendor who folds down the top, punches a hole and puts a ribbon through. Awesome way to dress up a plain bag.
Order from PaperMart - great supplier.
Ask a local merchant if they will sell you a few of theirs. If it's not too many they are usually happy to help.

I asked this same exact question yesterday!! My first craft show is this Saturday so I was also in a rush and couldn't order online. I went to office max. I got the white plastic bags that say thank you on them. You get 150 for $5. Next time I'll probably do something cuter, but this time is all about learning!! Good luck!

You can buy bags from uline and if you call early in the day (tomorrow) you might even be able to have them send it out via courier. I know this because I temped for a courier service a couple years ago and uline would call us regularly for quotes. Otherwise they'd drop it off the next day.
That being said, when I finally get around to doing a show, I'm going to use paper shopping bags. So much easier to carry things (especially since I could easily use the small bags because I'm going to do wine glass charms) and they're just more comfortable to carry around at craft shows.
