Showbags Research Project


Showbags – Royal Melbourne Show

RASV Heritage Research Project

RASV Heritage is researching the history of showbags or sample bags (as they were first known) for an exhibition.

Can you help?

Do you have any examples of early sample bags or paper showbags?

Do you have information, photographs or advertising about early sample bags, showbag manufacturers and sellers or showbag stands at the Royal Melbourne Show.

If you can assist with this project - we’d love to hear from you.
