Title: Interleaved roll mounted bags and dispenser

Abstract: A series of interleaved roll mounted bags and dispenser for them are described. The bags are folded longitudinally and rolled switch an upper portion of each bag located above a lower portion of a succeeding bag. The compact roll of bags is placed in a tray like dispenser with the upper end of the outermost bag extending over either of the font or back wall of the dispenser. As the upper portion of the first bag is pulled from the roll, the bag roll will rotate, presenting the succeeding bag for dispensing after the first bag is removed. In a variant of the invention, the rolled bags are gusseted T-shirt style shopping bags. These T-shirt bags have top and bottom seals, gusseted sides, a U-shaped cutout at the top seam, an open mouth and a pair of bag handles. Variations of the dispenser include a simple tray or box with an top, and various designs of wireform trays. In other variants, the dispenser includes a bag guide extending from a front wall of the dispenser to a rear wall of the dispenser. The bag guide may be curved, V-shaped, a rounded U-shape or a square U-shape. The dispenser may be attached to a surface with screws or nails extending through openings in the supports for the dispenser or glue tabs may be used for attachment. Weighted feet are used to secure the dispenser in a final variant.
