How do I clean this vintage beaded purse?

Looking for advice on how, if possible, I might clean a vintage beaded purse. The beadwork was done on a loom; it's not beaded to the fabric underneath. I'm wondering if there's a safe way to clean the beadwork, and am finding contradictory and possibly specious advice online. [more inside]

Help me find the last wallet I'll ever need?

While reading the purse thread, I realized I'm in dire need of a new wallet. I don't give a toss about brand names, but I really want a well made, durable women's wallet. It's got to be available in Canada, handle lots of spare change well, and have lots of room for cards. If it's affordable and goes well with a butter yellow handbag, all the better!

Tiny Black Biking Backpack

I would like a black backpack, smaller than your average backpack, that's just large enough to fit my iPad, u-lock, and a few essentials while riding my bike. Something like this would work, except I would really prefer something with a squared off rolltop or flap top to the traditional rounded zipper backpack opening. To be even more picky, I would prefer it to be water-resistant, and ideally from a small messenger bag company that manufactures in the USA. If I could just buy something like this and shoot it with a shrink ray, I'd be happy. [more inside]

Looking for a cheaper replacement for the Lo&Sons OG

I'd like something almost exactly like the Lo&Sons OG gym and travel bag — something that includes a laptop sleeve, pockets, and the additional strap to hold it on a rolling suitcase. Ideally, it would be professional-looking enough to carry to job interviews. Unfortunately, I'm also working with a graduate student budget. Any suggestions?

Google has nothing for 'arthritis-friendly purse'

I’m looking for a purse with several credit/debit card holders that hold the card(s) snugly but are easy to remove for someone with severe arthritis in their hands (think claws). Recipient is in their 70’s, female, with plain tastes. We’re in the UK so it’d be great if the item could be a) purchased online with guarantee of delivery before Xmas or b) bought in a department store like Marks & Spencer or Debenhams.
