A populary ukulele accessory is a flat stand, which is suitable for a desk, table, or shelf. These are very simple cradle-like objects which hold your ukulele upright on a flat surface. They are normally made of metal or wood. Because the structure is so simple, some people even like to build their own. If you are looking to make an art piece out of the ukulele, this is the best choice. The downside to this type of stand is that it takes up space on your surface.
Hangers are a common ukulele accessory seen in music shops. It is basically a small wishbone shaped object that is attached to a wall or surface. These are great if you have many instruments, because you can create a ukulele mural to show them off. Hangers are also useful for keeping instruments high up, out of reach of pets or kids. Wall hangers need to be screwed into the wall, so you should consider clip-on hangers if that is a problem. Additionally, the ukulele is still free to swing around, so hangers don't offer heavy protection.
