To think this woman was unreasonable to stick her bags on top of the crafts at a stall..

Went to a craft fair yesterday, I was just paying for an item when a woman came up to look at stuff, she then stuck her handbag and two carrier bags on top of the stall (on the stuff for sale) to free her hands to pick up an item to look at.
I kind of glanced at her bags, not actually saying anything as I'd not realised what she had done to be honest, she then snapped 'they are only some cakes and stuff' at this point it clicked, slightly bemused that she was clearly looking for me (a random customer to say it was ok whilst the stall owner looked horrified) I just said 'but they are actually on the things the gentleman is trying to sell, I would have maybe put them elsewhere' having collected my change I was then wandering away when she goes 'they aren't even on the bloody stuff'
I'm still a bit baffled by her reaction, but surely you don't just stick your bags on products on any stall?
So trivial I know but hey it's a slow day..

She was obviously just a very rude and inconsiderate person. People like that really annoy me - I would probably have got into an exchange with her, but she's probably really thick skinned so I don't know if it would have been much use!

Seems like a weird thing to do- especially if it's going to squish a cake or something! Stallholders can spend ages dressing their displays, so it isn't on to be chucking stuff on it.

She's plain rude & thoughtless, YANBU. Well done for actually saying something though

as many people wouldn't

To be clear the stuff wasn't easily breakable but still all set out nicely.
She clearly was just rude.

Yanbu, and I would assume that she was probably doing it to nick stuff. But then I am generally untrusting of strangers!

Oh glo I hadn't thought of that!
