AbstractA stand for supporting laundry includes a pair of oppositely disposed legs which are interconnected by one or more connecting rods. The legs are constructed of scissor linkages which allow the legs to be readily folded and unfolded, and cross members may be used to hold the legs in an open position. Advantageously, the laundry stand uses connectors which pivotably attach the scissor linkages and allow the connecting rods to connect the legs. In particular, the connectors have a first end configured to be fastened to the connecting rod and a second end configured to be inserted through an opening in one or both of the legs.
