Revealed by the fan inside the bag!

Apparently in the Victorian era the fan was not only a fashion accessory, but also a means of communication.  The gesture of positioning the fans, "fan-language" is interesting. For example a fan wide open, would mean "wait for me".
For a selection of gestures and their interpretation refer to The Secret Language of Fans

Today fans still have their own way of revealing secrets. Even a fan kept in the bag can expose a lot.
But relax my friends your secret is safe with me :)
