$1.99 & FREE shipping for TWO custom handbag hangers July 13, 2010

Ok, so what’s a handbag hanger and why do I need one? Well, when you go out to dine, where does your handbag go? The back of your chair so that you can be pick-pocketed? Your lap so you can drop food on it? The floor so you can bring home who-knows-how-many icky germs?

Here’s the solution! You need a handbag hanger! ArtsCow’s “great bag hanger provides an easy way to hang your purse or handbag. The hanger folds into a disc shape and are the perfect size for carrying in your purse. Customize with your own personalized [photo or] logo (1 1/4″ in diameter), with enamel coating for long time protection.”

Normally $6.99 each plus shipping, use code HANGHOOK to get TWO for a total of $1.99 with FREE shipping!

Some ideas… Use photos of your kids to make gifts for their grandmothers! Use your company logo or a friend’s company’s logo for extremely inexpensive give-aways or gifts! Use a photo of your pet so Fluffy or Fido is always with you! Perhaps a photo of the sunset from your latest vacation to whisk you away to paradise!

Expires: July 16, 2010 or whenever the stock is depleted – whichever happens first
