Repairing Purse Straps

I have a brand new fake vinyl Coach purse. The straps are stretched to thread and vinyl is broken where the end wraps around metal ring. What to do?

Hi - I believe this would difficult for you to repair and suggest you take it to a shoe repair shop. Be sure to get an estimate before you leave the purse!

Just for information:

Most people do not know that it is illegal to sell, buy or have in your possession a "fake" item of any brand name.

I have used E-6000 glue and even gorilla glue to glue the strap back in place. If you use gorilla use very little as it "grows" or foams up. Just put a bit into the strap, vise it - with a clothes pin or gripper vise til it sets and it will be good as new. Good luck.
