Whether you manage a retail store that sells purses or make handbags to sell at craft shows, it's important for you to display them in a way that catches the eye of potential customers. Simply placing them on a table or hanging them haphazardly on a rack won't do the merchandise justice. Instead, use some creativity and display the handbags in a way that makes them stand out in the crowd.

    Retail Store

  1. 1

    Install hooks or decorative knobs throughout the shop and hang different purses on them. Make a display of four to six purses hanging from hooks on a vacant wall between clothing racks or displays. This can entice customers to look at a new purse to go with the outfit they want to buy. Take advantage of small wall spaces that are otherwise unused.

  2. 2

    Mount shelves on the walls that customers can easily reach. Arrange different styles, sizes and colours of handbags on the shelves to create a colourful and interesting display.

  3. 3

    Place a well-dressed mannequin next to the entrance of the store or in an area with a display of purese. Hang a handbag on her arm. This will give customers an idea of how they can pair a new handbag with an outfit.

  4. 4

    Turn a bunch of colourful storage cubes on their sides and stack them to create a pyramid-type structure. Stabilise them with wire ties and place a purse in each cube for display.

    Displaying Handbags at Shows

  1. 1

    Cover a large table with a piece of coloured fabric to create a backdrop.

  2. 2

    Arrange cardboard boxes -- large enough to top with one or two handbags -- on top of the table and drape pieces of fabric over the boxes to conceal them.

  3. 3

    Place handbags in various positions on the table. Some can go on top of the boxes. Others can lean against the boxes.

  4. 4

    Position a purse rack nearby and hang extra purses for sale on the rack.

Tips and warnings

  • Don't be afraid to use your creativity to display the handbags. The more creative, the more noticeable the displays.
  • Only create stable displays. Make sure hooks and other props are secure before displaying the handbags.
