It’s stylish. It’s the haute couture (French for elegant sewing) of vintage accessories! I love it! I want to wear it out of season! Wait, I want to decorate with it! This, my friends, is a 1950’s Tortoise Shell Summer Purse by Stylecraft of Miami. I am so excited. But, wait…
What is that smell wafting up to my nostrils as I admire my new treasure? Ewwewwweeee, is that cigarettes or moth balls or both? It is – the double whammy of vintage or antique anything.
Here is what you do: Just place Bounce or any other strongly scented dryer sheet inside and close. Leave it for a week. This works for books, too. Just place bounce between a few of the pages and it gets rid of the mildew smell.
See you in a week, purse!

What are great idea! Now I can freshen up some of my old musty books. 🙂 By the way, I loooooove the purse!
Hi Ms. Everstar, I am so glad to see you visited the site. I found some great hats to go with the purse and put them in my antique booth. I couldn’t believe they have already sold in just a few days. For books, this works great. I love to read books written before the 1950’s. They are so much more intelligent and interesting. Visit again. I appreciate your comments.
