A sports event often means carrying a mini backpack, binoculars or purse to the game. A Clipa bag hanger works where traditional purse hooks can’t, including drink cup holders (works on stadium seats as well as in bathrooms), section rails, stall walls and doors, sinks, bars, restaurant tables, bleacher railings even fences. Indoors or out, a Clipa is the stylish way to keep your bag in sight, easy to access, and off the floor or ground.
Sometimes when you’re shopping, carrying your purse and bags can really weigh you down. If you’re in a bookstore, it can be even harder: bending down and straightening up as you go through the shelves while balancing books, bags and more. Let the Clipa bag hanger takes the weight off of your shoulders while you shop: simply open one end and hang your bag on the shelf directly in front of you. You’ll be able to keep an eye on your purse while browsing. When finished, just pull the strap and Clipa slides back onto the bag automatically. The “can’t lose” purse hook also comes in handy in bookstore restrooms, snack areas, reading nooks, even at the checkout counter. So next time you’re browsing the bookstore, remember: think outside the bag.
We recently discovered a public bathroom stall with an interesting metal addition. Rather than replace the missing purse hook hardware on the back of the stall door, they actually replaced it with a plate! It took the same number of screws and labor to cover it that it would have taken to put another one up. Instead, women now have no place to hang their purses and shopping bags. Imagine how frustrating that is. Or how many times that stall is left in favor of another, all because a simple little convenience is missing.
Women make up half of the population, live longer, and frequent dining establishments in huge numbers. We visit museums more often than men, make up a larger portion of the audience at live performances such as the symphony and do most of the shopping. Yet in place after place, we’ve seen either no purse hook, a missing hook or in this case, a plate where a hook ought to be. A substantial number of bars and after-hours night spots also lack purse hooks under the bar. In these cases, women are literally left “holding the bag.”
Until there is a greater awareness on the part of the managers and owners of these organizations, we’ll be using Clipa handbag hangers. They’re sturdy, reliable and unlike vanishing hooks, they’re here to stay.
How ’bout you? Have you ever notified management about the need for hooks in their restrooms?
A small hostess gift–usually a small extravagance your hostess wouldn’t buy for herself–is considered appropriate to bestow when you first walk into a dinner party. Thoughtful and useful, hostess gifts reflect your good taste and appreciation. If you know your hostess well, you might focus on a favorite hobby, trip, culinary interest or even a sport she likes. Perhaps gardening essentials, Eiffel tower ring holders, a market tote from New Orleans or a runner’s cookbook? If you don’t know your hostess very well, fresh flowers are lovely but if you’re looking for something different, a Clipa purse hanger might be ideal. Clever and simple, it’s something she’ll use for years. In fact, this elegant but sturdy “can’t lose” purse hook will probably outlast her handbag. For that special hostess, a Clipa purse hanger is a memorable way to say “thank you for a wonderful evening.” To see the latest styles, click on the image or visit www.clipa.us
In its Fall Fashion Fixes & Tricks segment yesterday, Fox 5 San Diego covered Clipa. At the end of the 5 minute piece, the instant handbag hanger was lauded for how much weight it could hold and how many places it works.

The change of seasons can bring fun fall parties, shopping…and wet weather. Is your handbag ready? If it’s on the ground it, can be stepped or hit by moving chairs and easily pick up germs, water or dirt. If it’s placed on the back of a chair, it can slide off, be bumped off or even taken. But when it’s hung with a Clipa purse hanger, it’s conveniently right next to you. And when you’re ready to go, it makes an audible “click” when sliding automatically back onto the bag strap. So whether you’re trying on shawls at a craft fair, picking apples or enjoying a cup of coffee, Clipa can make whatever you’re doing this fall more fun.
