The first 'sample' bags were given away for free from the late 1920s and usually contained small food samples. Over the years, the price, contents and design of show bags have changed, but they remain popular. Today there are bags promoting toys, sports teams, magazines and cosmetics. Prices range from a few dollars to more than $200! For many, a visit to the show is not complete without buying at least one show bag.
