If you have handbags you want to display in your shop, you'll need to do so in a way that is attractive to potential customers. If your store sells more than handbags, be consistent with the way you display all your items. You want your customers to be drawn in to the store with a good visual display, but you also want them to be able to find what they need once inside.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Put your handbags behind a glass counter. This is particularly useful for your expensive inventory, as it keeps shoppers from handling and scuffing the purses or potentially stealing them. If you choose to keep handbags out of reach, however, make sure an employee is nearby to help customers.

  2. 2

    Display your handbags on hooks or single-purse shelves. High-end clothing stores with small inventories and high profit margins tend to use this technique, which displays handbags as works of art. Instead of cluttering bags together, store owners showcase each purse in this manner.

  3. 3

    Organise your handbags on shelves. Deep shelves give you room to customise the arrangement of the purses by style, colour or some other theme.

  4. 4

    Arrange your handbags on long racks. This is one of the most customer-friendly setups because it allows the shopper to quickly sift through many purses to find the perfect one.

  5. 5

    Hang handbags on knobs. This is a good idea for small purses you want to hang near the register, as knobs don't take up much room.
