Just Hanging Around!
Over 35 years ago these were popular, and they seem to be making a huge comeback, I have noticed. Do you remember the little hangers women attached to a table, and hung their little bags from, so, as not to dirty them on the floor?

Check out this link, to see what they are, if you have no idea what I am talking about:):) While I never used one back in the good old days, I think I will get one for the Century cruise, because I always put my teeny bag on the table, or in my lap.

They range from doing the job, to see my bling styles, Do a search and check them all out.

I vaguely remember them. Not a bad idea, since "I have no lap!" The angle is all wrong :wink: . Order some and let me know how they work!

that is a great idea, lots of choices.
My evening bag usually ends up slung over the back of my chair or on the floor underneath my feet

RE: where to put that purse?
In your opinion is it okay to put a very small evening purse on the table in front of your place setting, or is this an etiquette no-no?

I sometimes carry, tiny, wee ones that, have no handles and take up no room at all on the table. If it has a handle it goes on the chair. I think these hooks could asuage anyones feelings..It's safe, and clean, and handy:):)

R2g..I have read many testimonials already...and I have seen them work
firsthand, as they are supposed to..get one, if it fits your need:)

Just Hanging Around
I've never heard of such a thing. But I have gone to a few restaurants that have little hooks under the table so you can hand a handbag.

On a ship, I hang it over a chair if I can, or else I just put it in my lap.
Interesting question, Lisa. I was always told that it's rude to put a bag on the table. (???) Anybody know the proper etiquette for that?

I don't remember if I still have the one that was my Mother's or not. But until recently hadn't seen them. Might get one for next cruise.
