I recently acquired a magazine clutch purse. It features a magazine cover of Essence magazine (the largely popular African-american magazine). I have no idea of its worth or even where to look to determine it. Please help!

I have an old fedora-type hat that I bought from a op-shop, it needs a bit of a clean and I want to dye it black to match my suit (its currently dark olive green). Could you please give me some advice on how to do this and continue to look after it? It has lost a bit of shape. The local dry cleaner told me of old block sets they used to use for them, but no-one has them anymore. I'm in Newcastle, Australia by the way. Thanks in advance, Will

I have an exquisite collection of 1930's black suede handbags beautifully made and in excellent condition, except that the suede is bleeding, i.e. comes off like a charcoal smudge on your hands and anything they touch. Is there a way to stop the suede from bleeding? Please help.

Hi Janet. I have some cute vintage hats, but I'm never sure what is the front and what is the back. Does the label go in a certain direction, or do you have another helpful hint? Thank you so much for your help!

Hi Janet,
I recently purchased a mink stole from an antique store. It's a gem and I hope to give it to my daughter as a present. Unfortunately, it has a musty odor to it. How can I get rid of it ?
Thanks so much!
