This little do-dad is one of my favorite new travel musts haves, whether you are just traveling out for the night or to another continent.
My friend Kayla introduced me to this simple little treasure. It can be as decorative as you wish. Hers is very classic and simple. My purse-hanger is a sparkly margarita glass! The one I just bought as a gift for someone is a tiny bouquet of colorful enamel flowers. There is a style for everyone.
Most importantly, these hangers help reduce or prevent the typical abuse a purse suffers when traveling. How many times have you set your purse under a table on the dirty cement or worse on a rainy day, on wet muddy cement? We all know that we can’t hang them on the back of the chair unless you want to invite theft and purse-snatching. So…….. If we happen to love our purse, we hold it awkwardly in our lap or hang it on our knee. In the past, by the end of our trip, my beautiful handbag was usually, stained, scraped, crumpled and in no way resembled what I started out with, but now with my purse-hanger, I can keep my bag looking stylish and clean all through the trip.
Travel can be hard enough without constantly dealing with awkward purse contortions. I just hang my purse on its hanger, right next to my hand whenever I’m at a bar or seated at a restaurant table. Of course, I always hang it on the side away from any potential access points (ie. don't hang it on the street side of a café table in Paris). Just because you have this great convenient hanger, don’t give up on your general purse security!
I personally bought my purse-hanger at Stein-Mart and it was around $10.00, but there are lots of internet sites which sell a huge selection of purse-hangers. Just type in “Purse Hangers” and you will find a long list of vendors.
Don’t leave home without this tiny hook that provides HUGE convenience!
