    Ahhh. Lots of threads out there with this. Search by "display" or similar to find

    But many of us buy verticle paper towel holders

    When I'm back I can post some examples.

    You can also look for antique hat stands.

    Or do you want to put them on shelves?

    Then have a well earned cold beer and revel in smug satisfaction.....

    I've started using single candle holders from charity shops, there are always plenty to choose from and they're cheap. A bit of padding on the top and they pass through the liner for the shell to sit on it, this way you avoid any stress to the liner.

    Here are a few links. John's examples above are what I was talking about, you can also get metal versions. They are cheap, $8 or so at retail stores and even cheaper at discount stores. Look at Glenns (Glenn66) in the first link, or the old and poor picture below of mine for the metal versions. I quick trip to the store will give you many many varieties.

    Oh....and then there is Ned's choice...a pringle can The added benefit of that is that you get to eat the contents first.

    Just don't put any pressure on the liners. Make sure the stand contacts the dome.
