Question: Hi Karen, my Grandma recently gave me her vintage suitcase which I love but it looks a bit old and tired. Are there any tricks to fixing this back up?
Answer: Vintage suitcases can be a bit tricky but there are a few easy tricks to try first. Use shoe polish to buff up any areas where there is loss of colour and air out in the sunshine to kill any bacteria that may be living inside the case. If the lining needs replacing, the best people to talk to are furniture reupholsters as they have the knowledge to do this professionally. Karen.
