    кошелёк

    what's the correct stress on the variations of the word кошелёк?

    so do you say "в кошЁлке" or "в кошелкЕ"

    These are two different words (they both derive from an obsolete word "кошель").

    кошелЁк (masc.) - a wallet -> в кошелькЕ
    кошЁлка (fem., colloquial) - a kind of a bag -> в кошЁлке
    Also "(старая) кошёлка" - old bag (an (old) unpleasant, frumpy woman)

    And please remember that "ё" is always stressed (even if it's often spelled as "е").
